“America’s Got Talent” continued to dominate its other broadcast competition in the total viewers and adults 18-49 measures for the week of August 6.

The NBC reality competition series led in both measures with a 1.9 rating and 11.04 million viewers, while the season finale of ABC’s “The Bachelorette” (1.8) and a rerun of “60 Minutes” (8.21 million) came in second in the respective charts. Elsewhere, the season premiere of “Bachelor in Paradise” also performed fairly well with a 1.1, and FOX’s “MasterChef” (3.70 million) rounded out the top 25 in total viewers.

In the network race, ABC and NBC actually tied in 18-49 with a pair of 0.8s, with the latter still holding onto the no. 1 spot in total viewers with a 4.08 million average.

Here are the network standings for last week and the season so far.
