A strong performance from a 2-part season finale helped give ABC the demo win in the broadcast ratings for the week of July 29.

Airing Monday night and Tuesday night, the season finale of “The Bachelorette” grabbed the week’s top two spots in the adults 18-49 demo for ABC, with 2.1 and 2.0 ratings. NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” which came fourth in the 18-49 chart with a 1.2 rating, held onto the week’s no. 1 spot in the total viewers chart with a 7.98 million viewer audience.

Meanwhile, the 2-part “Bachelorette” finale scored the week’s second and third-largest audiences, after raking in 7.52 million viewers Tuesday night and 7.25 million viewers Monday night.

In the network standings, ABC finished at no. 1 among adults 18-49 with its 0.8 average, followed by NBC (0.2) in second place. The standings were reversed among total viewers though, with NBC (3.67 million) taking the win and ABC (3.59 million) following closely behind.

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