Nbc Has No. 1 Show; Cbs Is No. 1 Network

Although NBC scored solidly once again with its all-new editions of America's Got Talent, CBS remained the highest-rated network overall last week, both in terms of overall households and viewers 18-49, even though most of its programming was composed of reruns. An exception was its reality series Big Brother , which landed three episodes in the top ten among the 18-49 demo and tied for tenth place in households. The week also marked the return of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire to the Nielsen top ten. But it was far from being the juggernaut it once was. Only the Monday edition made the top ten, tying for eighth place. For the week, CBS came in at No. 1 with a 4.1 rating and an 8 share. NBC placed second with a 3.4/6. ABC followed with a 2.8/5, while Fox trailed with a 2.5/5.
