NBC’s America’s Got Talent opened strong last night, with adults 18-49 ratings up 13% from last summer’s premiere, but the combo of Hell’s Kitchen and Glee put Fox atop Tuesday’s ratings averages.

The season premiere of Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen was up 4% vs. last seasons premiere (7/21/09) to a 2.9 adults 18-49 rating. Glee’s 3.8 adults 18-49 rating was down 21% vs. last week when it followed American Idol, but up 15% from its fall 2009 average when it didn’t. It was Glee’s best adults 18-49 rating for a show not following American Idol. Together they allowed Fox to just edge NBC for the adults 18-49 ratings crown on Tuesday.

On NBC, America’s Got Talent’s 3.6 adults 18-49 rating was up 13% from last summer’s premiere (6/23/09). Losing It With Jillian’s premiere rating of 2.7 was a good start.

The premiere (or as ABC would call it, sneak preview) of Wipeout was down 9% from last summer’s debut with a still quite respectable 3.0 adults 18-49 rating. 20/20 followed at 10pm with a 2.3 adults 18-49 rating.
