America’s Got Talent has got a new series low. It was beaten by its lead-out: two hours of the Democratic National Convention, as well as CBS’s Big Brother and Big Bang Theory rerun. ABC’s Wipeout and Rookie Blue bounced back three tenths from their series lows set last week.

The MTV Video Music Awards won the night with a 2.8.

Good Morning America passed The Today Show in the news demo, viewers aged 25-54, in the last week of August, and will probably hold on to the crown until The 2014 Winter Olympics.

“…X Factor is taking steps to differentiate itself from the competition by making the show more about the contestants – allowing the audience to see more of the audition process, how the contestants interact with each other and how they prepare for auditions.”

Jimmy Kimmel has Britney Spears and Simon Cowell on Wednesday. Craig Ferguson has Katey Segal on Thursday and Thomas Lennon on Friday. Stewart and Colbert have the week off.
