Nielsen Ratings Top 20: America's Got Talent and Wipeout

America's Got Talent and Wipeout led all comers this week, and although Wipeout was #2 overall, it was #1 among the 18-49 set. Swingtown haters may savor that it's not on the list, but in the 18-49 ratings, it was tied for #20 on a ratings basis and #23 on a viewers basis. While that hardly makes it a hit, at least in the demo that puts it ahead of every CBS show in the list below except the reruns of Two and a Half Men and CSI: Miami. If CBS were NBC, Swingtown already would've been dubbed summer's new biggest hit! Fortunatley CBS has not sunk so low yet. Low enough to air Swingtown? Sure, but not low enough to brag about a 1.9 in the 18-49 demo.
