NEW YORK (AP) — Nielsen says CBS ruled among viewers last week, scoring 11 of the top 20 prime-time shows.

But the most-watched program of the week was "Duck Dynasty." A&E's hit series about bayou brothers who manufacture duck calls summoned close to 12 million viewers for its season premiere.

Falling to second place was CBS' summer thriller, "Under the Dome," with more than 10 million viewers. It had previously claimed the top spot.

But CBS' reign as prime-time's most-watched network held firm. Overall CBS averaged more than 5 million viewers, logging its eighth consecutive week in the lead. ABC took the runner-up position, followed by Fox and Univision.

Disney Channel was the week's most popular cable network.

NBC's "Nightly News" topped the evening newscasts.
