The Media Chart is a weekly look at what's topping the rankings and the ratings.

Since CBS once again dominates broadcast and a political debate is the top ranker in cable, let's look at a couple of other categories. In top app publishers by revenue, we find that Supercell, maker of "Clash of Clans" and "Boom Beach" -- and, incidentally, an app publisher that spends quite a bit on TV marketing -- is No. 1, followed by China's Tencent and the U.K.'s King, maker of "Candy Crush" games.

And over in digital songs, Kelly Clarkson tops the Billboard chart with "Piece by Piece."
