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

The last week of the Olympics helped give NBC a lock on the entirety of the Top 10 broadcast rankings last week, with "The Voice" and "Superstore" making the most of their lead-ins.

Over on cable, the last season of "Rizzoli & Isles" was bringing viewers to TNT, with AMC's "Fear the Walking Dead" shuffling up immediately behind it.

And in magazine land, Better Homes & Garden reigns supreme over the women's lifestyle category.
