olympics-ratings-aug-15-16

The Summer Olympics may not have lived up to previous incarnations, but they still gave NBC a huge win for the week of Aug. 15-21.

The network’s nightly broadcasts snagged all seven top spots in both adults 18-49 and viewers. Post-Olympics airings of “Superstore” (3.0) and “The Voice” (2.7) and the “Rio Gold” special (2.7) prior to the closing ceremony finished eighth through 10th.

Sunday’s “Big Brother” (1.9) was the best of the rest in the 18-49 demo, while “60 Minutes” finished 11th in viewers at 6.94 million.
