TV Ratings: 'So You Think You Can Dance' Holds Steady; Wednesday Doesn't Help 'Duets'
So You Think You Can Dance took another Wednesday win for Fox on Wednesday. Fast affiliate ratings have the two-hour broadcast down just a tenth of a point in the demo, posting a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating for the night and taking in 6.5 million viewers.
Closest competitor CBS was more than a point shy in the demo, scoring a 1.3 adults rating for the night and bringing in 5.7 million viewers. Before its block of procedural repeats (Criminal Minds and CSI), the third episode of Dogs in the City posted 22 percent growth among adults 18-49, earning a 1.1 rating in the demo.
ABC mixed up the Wednesday block of comedy encores by adding a 90-minute special outing for Duets. The struggling reality competition didn't see any improvement on the new night, tying last week's series low of a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49. The network averaged a 1.1 in the demo over the course of the night and brought in 3.8 million viewers.
NBC, the only of the Big Four networks exclusively in encores, pulled a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 for the night and averaged 3.4 million viewers. The CW's back-to-back repeats of America's Next Top Model earned a 0.3 adults rating and 799,000 viewers.
