    NBC wins Thursday with "Talent"

    11.7 million viewers! None of them post here, though.

    NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - "America's Got Talent" finished its summer run with a narrow win in the key demographic on Thursday while "Primetime" coverage of the JonBenet Ramsey case gave the ABC newsmagazine a boost.

    "America's Got Talent" averaged 11.7 million viewers and a 3.5 rating/10 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary data released Friday by Nielsen Media Research. It was its highest rating for a Thursday all summer, when its results show had to compete against the summer's top show in the demo, Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance."

    But despite the 9-10 p.m. boost, "Talent" was NBC's only bright spot for the night. Repeats of sitcoms "My Name Is Earl" and "The Office" failed to perform well at 8 p.m., and the drama "Windfall" (5.7 million, 2/2/6) wasn't able to capitalize on the "Talent" lead-in.

    Interesting, no one that I've talked to has admitted to seeing let alone liking the show.

    Several members of my family watch it. Some of them even in different demographic categories and regional markets!

    No one I know watched it - but several watched So You Think You Can Dance. But then it did a little better than AGT.

    Well, it did better in terms of the demographic, but not the numbers.

    AGT's success in numbers stuns me, because no one really talks about watching it (unless you count the 5 year old girl I saw at the store yesterday who yelled "Don't hassle the Hoff!").

    I wonder if it could be the most unpopular popular show ever?

    I am not ashamed . I watched it. I liked it. My kids liked it. My husband tolerated it.
    It was fun summer filler but, like Dancing With the (Demi)Stars, once was enough for me.

    I liked the show a lot, I didn't post mostly because nobody else was posting
