The summer reality duel between America's Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance? is one of the few interesting battles this summer. For the week ending July 5, America's Got Talent placed #1 and #3 for adults 18-49 and #1 and #2 for average viewership. So You Think You Can Dance? was #2 and #8 in the important adults 18-49 demo.

CBS continues to expend no effort this summer, running nearly all repeats, but still put 9 shows in the top 20 rated for adults 18-49 for the week. For Les Moonves, vacation time is good!

I'm still dealing with data source problems. Note that the first chart contains age demo RATINGS not VIEWERSHIP, the second chart includes average viewership.  Please continue to excuse the terrible formatting.
