(AP Photo/NBC, Paul Drinkwater) by David Bauder AP Television Writer NEW YORK (AP) — NBC has emerged as the big winner after one week of the new television season, with hopes that it won’t all come crashing down the way it did last year.

But NBC was alone in seeing more prime-time viewers than it had during the same week in 2012, and the increase was 19 percent. Among the 18-to-49-year-old demographic that many advertisers seek, NBC had the widest first-week margin of victory in 16 years, the Nielsen ratings company said.
