NBC's first full week of Summer Olympics coverage gave it prime-time television's largest summer week ratings average in 12 years, according to figures released Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. NBC averaged 28.7 million viewers for its all-Olympics prime-time programming from Aug. 11 through Sunday, the highest summer weekly average since July 29-Aug. 4, 1996, when NBC averaged 32.1 million viewers for its coverage of the Atlanta Games. NBC had the most one-sided victory in the weekly prime-time ratings race since the introduction of the Portable People Meter system in September 1987, with more than five times the 5.1 million average for runner-up CBS. ABC was third, averaging 3.4 million viewers, followed by Fox Broadcasting with 3.2 million and the CW with 1.5 million.

It was a typical week in prime-time television -- "American Idol" dominated everything -- but Fox may have another reason for remembering it fondly: The network moved past CBS into first place for the TV season for average number of viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. For years Fox was regarded as fourth behind the Big Three of CBS, NBC and ABC. Now it's America's most popular TV network. With a full season of "American Idol" to go, it's likely no one will eclipse Fox before the season ends in May. The powerful talent competition had just under 30 million viewers for its Tuesday edition last week, and the Wednesday show had 24.8 million.

It's looking like CBS has a companion hit to go with "Two and a Half Men" on Monday nights. The audience for summer reruns of the sitcom "The Big Bang Theory" is up 52% over last summer. Nielsen Media Research figures released Tuesday showed that the series had nearly as many viewers as television's top-rated comedy, "Two and a Half Men." Summertime second runs are often when a show catches on. That happened last year with "NCIS" on CBS, which last week was the most popular drama on television.
