With the NBA Finals dunzo, summer's longtime No. 1 show returned to its throne.

NBC's "America's Got Talent" topped all broadcast shows last week, earning a 7.0 rating. It was the Peacock's only program to enter the top-10 ranking.

Show creator Simon Cowell replaced Howard Sten as a judge after the radio vet chose not to return this year after four seasons.

Elsewhere on broadcast, ABC's "Sunday Fun & Games" block made its debut, with "The $100,000 Pyramid" (No. 2) beating sibling game-show series "Celebrity Family Feud" (No. 4) and "Match Game" (No. 8).

But all the pop-culture heat went to "Game of Thrones," not to mention a series high of 8.9 million viewers. That's up from the prior season finale's 8.1 million. Fans now have until spring 2017 (most likely) for the next installment.
