'America's Got Talent' laps the television field

NEW YORK (AP) — Much to NBC's delight, there really hasn't been much competition for "America's Got Talent" as the summer's favorite television show.

The Nielsen company said last week's version of the competition was seen by 12.4 million people. That's nearly 5 million more than the week's second most-popular show, "World of Dance," which has the advantage of following "Talent" on NBC's schedule on Tuesday nights.

That enabled NBC to win the week. NBC now wins as commonly in the summer as CBS does during the regular television season.

On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, CBS is now burning off extra episodes of its Katherine Heigl drama, which lasted only two weeks after premiering in February.
