America's Got Talent Shoulders Aside So You Think You Can Dance?, Takes Top 2 Adults 18-49 Spots

America's Got Talent took the top two spots in the important adults 18-49 demo for broadcast primetime, shouldering aside So You Think You Can Dance? which had both of its episodes tie for #3 with Wipeout for the week ending July 12.

With the addition of Big Brother to its line up of repeats that was already performing quite well, CBS took 9 of the top 20 shows for adults 18-49 and 11 of the top 20 shows for average viewership on the week. Not bad for practically sitting by the pool doing nothing but running repeats!

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.
