America’s Got Talent and Wipeout were back on top. Although AGT had over three million more total viewers than Wipeout, Wipeout managed to attract a few hundred thousand more viewers in the 18-49 demographic.

CBS continues to be strong with nine shows in the weekly top 20. With its crime dramas and Monday night comedies fairing well in reruns.

If you don’t see an 18-49 rank, it means that the show was not among the top 31 shows in that demographic for the week (that’s all the 18-49 data we saw for the week).  We'll post the full 18-49 top 20 on Thursday.
