'So You Think You Can Dance' Wedneday debut taps ratings gain

Posted on


More good news for summer reality shows: The premiere of Fox’s Wednesday night edition of So You Think You Can Dance posted a mild gain on last year’s opener.

Dance delivered 8.4 million viewers and a 3.0 preliminary adults 18-49 rating, up 7 percent from last year. That follows last Thursday’s Dance premiere as the most-watched in years, and Tuesday’s debut of NBC’s America’s Got Talent as ranking as the most-watched debut of that show ever.

NBC also rolled out the first game of the Stanley Cup, which had its best overnight numbers for a Game 1 in 12 years despite being, as usual, modestly rated overall — with 4.5 million and 1.8 in these early live estimates.
