NBC managed third place for viewers, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54, but Univision nipped ahead to place second for adults 18-34 beating all the English broadcasters but Fox. Expect continued relative strength from Univision all summer.

Tiny Network Smackdown Update! The tables have been turned and MyNetworkTV beat the CW in every demo we track except adults 18-34 where the two tiny networks tied.
