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

It's summer time, and the living is easy for NBC, which finds itself once again atop the broadcast ratings chart with "America's Got Talent." But unlike last week, when that was the Peacock Network's only program in the top 10, it's getting an early taste of what it hopes will be Olympic gold. The Olympic Trials: Swimming made it onto the chart.

Over on cable, a couple of TNT crime procedurals edged out a slate of news programming and professional wrestling.
