Encores of America's Got Talent and Law & Order: SVU helped give NBC a 1.7 rating among adults 18-49 for the night and 6.3 million viewers.

So You Think You Can Dance took a 17 percent hit in the fast nationals. The two-hour show earned Fox a 1.5 adults rating and 4.5 million viewers.

Encores and a slightly down Big Brother (off just one-tenth of a point from the previous Wednesday for a 2.0 adults rating) had CBS matching Fox in the demo and pulling in 5.7 million viewers for the night.

Univision posted a 1.3 rating with 18-49-ers, while ABC earned a 1.0 adults rating. Comedy encores and the finale of N.Y. Med, which posted an even 1.0 rating with adults, gave ABC 3.7 million viewers.

On The CW, the second Wednesday episode for Oh Sit! was down a tenth of a point in the demo from its series premiere with a 0.4 adults rating -- though the game show was up from its Thursday outing last week.
