NBC’s ‘America’s Got Talent’ dominates television’s week

NEW YORK, United States --- "America's Got Talent" continues to dominate the summer television landscape, although not by enough to make NBC the week's most popular network. The talent show was seen by 11.3 million people last week, more than four million more than the next closest show, a repeat version of "60 Minutes," the Nielsen company said Tuesday.

It's part satire, part teen-drama, but "American Vandal" spoofs "true crime" docuseries like "Making a Murderer" into a school setting---and resoundingly succeeds.
