TV Ratings: 'So You Think You Can Dance' Steady, Hockey Tops Wednesday

ABC's "Caught in the Act" drew 5.1 million at 10 p.m.

It was dancing or hockey on Wednesday night, so which dominated in the ratings?

In a night filled with reruns, it was Fox versus NBC. Fox's So You Think You Can Dance (7.3 million total viewers, 2.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic) was relatively steady, slipping 7 percent from last Wednesday's comparable telecast but rising 4 percent from Thursday's top 20.

Over on NBC, the deciding Game 7 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals between the newly crowned champs Boston Bruins and the Vancouver Canucks looks to top the night, averaging a 3.2 rating in the primetime portion. Final numbers should be in later.

ABC aired a news special Caught in the Act (5.1 million, 1.6) at 10 p.m.

Ratings Bottom Line: America decides to tune in to the deciding Game 7 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals.
