Hell's Kitchen might have been #11 in overall viewing, but it led the week with adults 18-49.  America's Got Talent was #1 overall and third (and fourth!) with adults 18-49.

Big Brother was again very strong for CBS taking with all three of its airing making the top ten with adults 18-49,  but repeats of The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men led CBS when it came to adults 18-49.

ABC had place only two shows n the 18-49 top 25, Wipeout (#8) and the premiere of Crash Course (#24).  Univision placed twice as many shows as ABC into the 18-49 top 25, with four shows.

Weekly cable show ratings and overnight broadcast show ratings are also available.

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