bachelorette-finale-ratings-aug-1-16

The opening of the Summer Olympics gave NBC the Top 3 spots in both adults 18-49 and total viewers for the week of Aug. 1-7.

Sunday’s Olympic telecast is No. 1 for the week in both measures with a 9.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 29.78 million viewers. Add in two “America’s Got Talent” episodes and NBC controls the first five spots in viewers.

The finale of “The Bachelorette” (2.5) tied with Tuesday’s “AGT” for the top non-Olympic rating among adults 18-49.
