NEW YORK (AP) — Football scored a touchdown in the ratings last week, and “America’s Got Talent” showed its talent for attracting an audience, according to Nielsen Media Research.
A pair of games — NFL Football (Sunday) and Chicago at Green Bay — claimed the top spots in the week’s prime-time ratings ranking, with four other football-related shows also landing in the Top 10.
Meanwhile, “America’s Got Talent” took fifth and 10th place as the NBC competition series nears its finale.
Among early fall series premieres, Fox’s “Glee” ranked in 19th place, with a robust 7.44 million viewers. The CW’s “Vampire Diaries” ranked 40th, with 4.91 million viewers. And that network’s revived “Melrose Place” ranked 92nd, with 2.31 million, Nielsen said.
