olympics-ratings-aug-9-16

The Summer Olympics gave NBC a big ratings win for the week of Aug. 8-14. The network’s seven nightly primetime telecasts occupy all seven top spots in the rankings among both adults 18-49 and total viewers.

Tuesday’s coverage, featuring the women’s gymnastics team final, led both measures with a 10.0 in the 18-49 demo and 33.44 million viewers. Two editions of “Big Brother” (1.8) tied as the top non-Olympic show among adults 18-49, while “60 Minutes” (6.03 million) finished eighth in viewers.
