The first week of “Big Brother” snagged three of the top 6 spots in adults 18-49 for the week of June 25. “America’s Got Talent,” however, remained No. 1.

Although it was down week to week, “AGT” still finished first in both adults 18-49 (2.0 rating) and total viewers (11.3 million) for the week. “Big Brother’s” premiere finished second in the 18-49 demo at 1.5, and the Thursday (1.4) and Sunday (1.2) episodes came in third and sixth.

NBC led the network 18-49 race with a 0.8, a tenth of a point better than CBS. The Eye averaged the most total viewers with 4.32 million, a smidge more than NBC’s 4.24 million.

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