Big Jump For Penultimate ‘Talent’

The NBC show posted a 2.5 adults 18-49 rating from 9 to 11 p.m., surging 32% over a 1.9 last week. Talent was also up 4% over last year’s 2.4 for its next-to-last episode, notable because very few programs have seen year-to-year gains this summer. Talent, which airs its season finale tonight, was the night’s top program among 18-49s, on an evening with a slew of original shows.
