TV Ratings Top 25: Jersey Shore Bigger Than America’s Got Talent?

America's Got Talent topped the weekly broadcast rankings both with overall viewers (11.5 million) and adults 18-49.  But Jersey Shore's 3.3 rating with the advertising coveted adults 18-49 demographic was bigger than anything else on television last week, broadcast or cable.  Although it had 5 million fewer total viewers, Jersey Shore fared 10% better with adults 18-49 than America's Got Talent.

I know that depresses some of you, but I'm sure ABC, CBS, FOX & NBC are more upset than you. Not only did they lose out to Snooki & 'The Situation' in terms of having the top program with adults 18-49 for the week, they all lost out to Univision for the whole week in that demographic.
