NBC stayed on top of the broadcast rankings in the week after the Olympics, grabbing half of the Top 10 in spots in both adults 18-49 and total viewers.

The Tuesday “America’s Got Talent” led the week in both measures with a 2.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 11.26 million viewers. Wednesday’s “AGT” results and two editions of “Big Brother” on CBS tied for second in the demo at 2.1.
