Just like last week, even with the Olympics, NBC couldn't manage to take the top spot with adults 18-49, where American Idol still sat at the top.  The Olympics  did take seven out of eight of the next nine spots on the adults 18-49 top 25 list though.

With total viewers, the Vancouver games coverage took the top four spots, with American Idol landing in fifth.

Below are the top 25 tables for both adults 18-49 and overall viewing.

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