NBC has won the ratings week of June 26-July 2 in primetime's key demographic of adults 18-49 as well as total viewers, paced by the #1 and #2 entertainment shows of the week on the broadcast networks in 18-49 and total viewers, "America's Got Talent" and "World of Dance." It's the fifth straight week "Talent" and "World" have ranked #1-2 among entertainment programs on both the 18-49 and total viewer lists.

In total viewers, NBC accounted for four of the week's top six primetime shows on the Big 4 nets and in 18-49 it was three of the top five.

In 18-49, NBC's top-20 rankings among primetime shows on ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX included: "America's Got Talent" (#1), "World of Dance" (#2), "American Ninja Warrior" (#5), Saturday's NBC Sports coverage of the "Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series" (#9), "Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge" (tied for #10), "The Wall" (tied for #10), "Hollywood Game Night" (tied for #15) and "Little Big Shots: Forever Young" (tied for #15).

In total viewers, NBC also got #1-2 rankings from "Talent" and "World", a #4 finish from "LBS: Forever Young" and a #6 ranking from "Ninja."
