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

Fox won the week for the Republican National Convention two weeks ago. And last week, CNN won the week for the Democratic National Convention. But it should be pointed out that even the best night of cable during the political week was only good enough to match ABC's "Celebrity Family Feud" over on broadcast.
