We're pleased about the return of well-formatted weekly data!

Hell's Kitchen might have been #10 in overall viewing, but it led the week with adults 18-49.  America's Got Talent was #1 overall and second with adults 18-49.

Big Brother was very strong for CBS taking the #3, #5, and #12spots with adults 18-49, and the Tuesday airing featuring Chima Simone getting bounced was the #6 program for the week in overall viewers.

ABC had only two shows in the 18-49 top 25, and they were #24 and #25!

Now onto the top 25 lists for 18-49 and overall viewing...

Adults 18-49 viewing for the week ending August 23, 2009:
