Ratings: 'So You Think You Can Dance,' CBS reruns dominate Thursday

Posted on

So You Think You Can Dance was last night’s only new, regularly scheduled series, and Fox reaped some of the benefits. The dance show posted better and better ratings each half-hour over the night, narrowly edging out CBS’ reruns in the 9-9:30 p.m. slot and flat-out winning the night in the 18-49 demo. Still, CBS’ procedurals did well, besting Fox in overall viewers for the night. ABC’s spelling bee spiked as the hours wore on, garnering 7.5 million viewers in its last half hour, while NBC’s comedy reruns posted anemic returns.
