'The Closer'

While NBC dominated the week with ‘America’s Got Talent,’ which topped the charts once again, it didn’t have much else to coo about. Its next highest-rated broadcast was a rerun of ‘Betty White’s Off Their Rockers’ down in 42nd place.

CBS won the week among total viewers, of course buoyed by reruns, particularly ‘The Big Bang Theory,’ which nabbed 2nd place, as well as ‘Two and a Half Men’ and ‘NCIS.’ ABC, meanwhile, did quite well with ‘The Bachelorette’ finale and the ‘Final Rose’ special on Sunday. The show was tops among adults 18-49.

Fox did fine with ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ and ‘MasterChef’ but was bested by TNT’s ‘The Closer,’ which netted 6.36 million viewers, making it cable’s most-watched show.
