NEW YORK, United States — “America’s Got Talent” continues to dominate the summer television landscape, although not by enough to make NBC the week’s most popular network.

The talent show was seen by 11.3 million people last week, more than four million more than the next closest show, a repeat version of “60 Minutes,” the Nielsen company said Tuesday.


CBS’ “Big Brother” has returned to the network’s summer schedule, and each episode was in the Nielsen’s top 20 for the week. CBS’ summer dramas, “Code Black” and “Instinct,” are also being watched, although not at the level of traditional in-season shows.


CBS won the week in prime time, averaging 4.3 million viewers. NBC had 4.2 million, ABC had 3.2 million, Fox had 2.2 million, Univision had 1.5 million, ION Television had 1.4 million, Telemundo had 1.2 million and the CW had 820,000.

Fox News Channel was the week’s most popular cable network, averaging 2.6 million viewers in prime time. MSNBC had 1.5 million, HGTV had 1.44 million, USA had 1.32 million and ESPN had 1.26 million.

ABC’s “World News Tonight” topped the evening newscasts with an average of 7.8 million viewers. NBC’s “Nightly News” had 7.2 million and the “CBS Evening News” had 5.5 million.

For the week of June 25-July 1, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: “America’s Got Talent,” NBC, 11.3 million; “60 Minutes,” CBS, 7.06 million; “The Big Bang Theory” (Thursday, 8:30 p.m.), CBS, 6.28 million; “World of Dance,” NBC, 6.08 million; “Little Big Shots,” NBC, 5.96 million; “The Big Bang Theory” (Thursday, 8 p.m.), CBS, 5.92 million; “The Bachelorette,” ABC, 5.79 million; “Code Black,” CBS, 5.74 million; “NCIS,” CBS, 5.69 million; “Blue Bloods,” CBS, 5.39 million./cbb
