·4-min read

Auditions continued on Episode 2 of “America’s Got Talent” Season 17, which was the most-watched and highest-rated show during primetime on Tuesday.

NBC’s competition series hit a high note with a 0.77 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 6.4 million total viewers — which is even higher than its season premiere last week (which had a 0.76 demo rating and 6.3 million total viewers).

It was a night of talent competitions on NBC, as “AGT” was followed up by the second episode of the network’s new show “Dancing With Myself” — which sees Shakira, Nick Jonas and Liza Koshy judge contestants participating in challenges based on viral dance trends.

Tuesday’s episode took a dip this week, down from a 0.42 demo rating and 2.7 million total viewers in its premiere to a 0.39 demo rating and 2.2 million total viewers.

Elsewhere in primetime, The CW aired the second episode of its “Nancy Drew” spinoff “Tom Swift.” The episode took home a 0.06 demo rating and 344,000 total viewers, which was about on par with its series premiere last week.
