The first debates between the 2020 democratic presidential candidates helped carry NBC to victory in the broadcast ratings.

The network’s broadcast of the 2 debates were the week’s highest-rated broadcasts – scoring 2.2 and 1.8 ratings in the adults 18-49 demo, respectively. The second debate was the week’s most-watched broadcast as well, after raking in 10.58 million viewers, while the first debate (8.68 million) came third.

Also on NBC, “America’s Got Talent” was the week’s no. 1, non-news broadcast with a 1.6 rating and 10.14 million viewers. Combined, the pair of debates and “Got Talent” gave NBC the top 3 spots in both the adults 18-49 and total viewers measures.

In the network standings, NBC took the week’s demo win with a 0.9 average rating, while ABC (0.6) fell to second place and CBS (0.5) tied with Univision (0.5) for third.
