Without any major sports broadcasts on to dethrone it, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” garnered both of the top spots in the total viewers and adults 18-49 races for the week of July 23-29.

The reality competition series was the highest-rated broadcast show of the week with a 2.0 rating in the demographic, and with an audience of 11.69 million viewers as well, was the most-watched show on TV in the past 5 weeks. Thanks to this, NBC has now ranked at #1 in total viewers – above all the other networks – for 4 weeks in a row.

Following behind “Got Talent” in adults 18-49, CBS’ “Big Brother” claimed all 3 of the other spots in the week’s top 4 with consistent 1.5s. NBC led the week’s network rankings once again as well, while FOX tied with ABC and CBS for the second spot.

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