Endless Gordon Ramsay Summer?  Hell's Kitchen was the week's top show with the advertising-centric adults 18-49, and Ramsay's new show, MasterChef, premiered at #3 on that list.  The Bachelorette was second and America's Got Talent fourth with adults 18-49.  Props to The Big Bang Theory which snuck into the top 5 shows with the 18-49 crowd with a repeat.

Update: Though the tables below are just for the broadcast networks, HBO's True Blood's 3.0 rating with adults 18-49 on Sunday night topped everything else for the week on cable or on the broadcast nets.

With total viewers, America's Got Talent edged out The Bachelorette though neither could break the 10 million viewer mark (this is for Monday July 26, the Monday August 2 finale of The Bachelorette did over 11 million viewers).  A repeat of NCIS was the week's most-watched scripted content with nearly 8.9 million viewers.  Take that, iCarly!

Adults 18-49 viewing for the week ending August 1, 2010:
