Twenty years later, the O.J. Simpson trial is still good for ratings.
One of many primetime events tied to the 20-year anniversary of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman‘s 1994 slaying, Dateline: The People Versus O.J. Simpson topped Tuesday night in the key demo. Posting a narrow victory over Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance, the two-hour special averaged a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49, marking a slight improvement from NBC News’ last big primetime play, Brian Williams‘ sit-down with Edward Snowden.
