TV Ratings: 'Camp' rises, 'Big Brother' dips as NBC wins Wednesday
'America's Got Talent' really leads NBC's wins
Fast National ratings for July 31, 2013.
Let's be honest: NBC won Wednesday in most measures due to "America's Got Talent" and not because of "Camp," but since "Camp" was up week-to-week and "AGT" was down, it seems acceptable to give the drama a little credit.
