NBC, which saw its ratings among the key 18-49 age group rise significantly for the first time in years during the regular season, has got off to a good start during the summer season, too. It placed four shows among the top ten in that demo, including the No. 1 show, Tuesday’s edition of America’s Got Talent, which was also No. 1 among total adults. Spanish-language Univision also scored strongly, coming in at No. 2, with four shows in the top ten. Nevertheless, CBS continued to draw the most viewers. A repeat of its The Big Bang Theory came in at No. 2 among total viewers and viewers 18-49.
