July 7, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

NBC executives may have been wishing that the network’s summer ratings might hold over through the regular season in the fall, as it led among 18-49-year-olds last week, thanks to the season finale of The Voice and potent numbers for America’s Got Talent. CBS continued its dominance among total adults — despite airing mostly reruns. CBS finished the week with a 3.6 rating and a 7 share, edging out NBC with a 3.5/6. ABC came in third with a 2.9/5, while Fox trailed with a 2.0/4.


The top ten shows of the week according to Nielsen Research:

1. America’s Got Talent (Wednesday), NBC, 7.6/13; 2. America’s Got Talent (Tuesday), NBC, 7.3/13; 2. The Voice, NBC, 7.3/12; 4. The Voice (Results Show), NBC, 6.3/11; 5. The Bachelorette, ABC, 5.6/9; 6. NCIS, CBS, 5.5/9; 7. NCIS: Los Angeles, CBS, 5.4/9; 8. The Mentalist, CBS, 5/9; 9. CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (Wednesday), CBS, 4.9/8; 10.
