Wednesday night had the first two scripted premieres of the season. NBC had the season finale of America's Got Talent and a sneak preview of new drama The Mysteries of Laura. Talent was up 1.7 million viewers and six tenths in the demo, but it was a tenth below Tuesday night's performance finale and last year's finale. Talent continues to be a strong summer draw. The sneak preview of The Mysteries of Laura was a successful one with over 10 million viewers and a 2.0 demo. It will obviously not have this same level next week at 8pm so there's not much to read into, but it at least got a good sampling.

FOX also had a series premiere but it was not nearly as positive. First up, Hell's Kitchen was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from last week's season premiere. Then the series premiere of new drama Red Band Society delivered very disappointing numbers. While it's a tough sell, it had a little buzz and so this has to be disappointing especially against reruns on ABC and CBS. Maybe some people (like myself) already watched the pilot when it was posted online early, but it still should have had more of an impact. Finally, Big Brother was down four tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo for CBS while the season (and most likely series) finale of Extant was up eight tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo for its best performance since July 30.
