UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. � July 21, 2009 � Paced by "America's Got Talent," which last week delivered the biggest overall viewership for any non-sports telecast on any network since the May finale of "American Idol," NBC tied for #2 in primetime's key demographic of adults 18-49 for the week of July 13-19, according to in-home viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research.

The Tuesday and Wednesday editions of "America's Go Talent" were the #1 and #2 non-sports programs of the week in most key measures, including adults 18-49, adults 25-54 and total viewers, trailing only Major League Baseball's All-Star Game telecasts. It's the fourth week in a row "America's Got Talent" has generated the #1 non-sports rating in adults 18-49 and total viewers.
