Of course both  American Idol telecasts again topped both the adults 18-49 and total viewer rankings.  Glee was the week's number one scripted show with adults 18-49 (FYI, Modern Family was a repeat ) and The Mentalist was the top scripted show with total viewers (NCIS was a repeat).

NBC  continued its struggles placing only two shows on the 18-49 list Biggest Loser & Celebrity Apprentice and only Harry's Law in the total viewers ranking.

In a week with a bunch of repeats the season (and likely series) finale of The Defenders was the 25th most-watched broadcast network show of the week.
