Last night’s ratings are in from TVByTheNumbers, and sadly, the numbers for SYTYCD fell 25%! UGH.
Big Brother had its best Wednesday premiere in viewers and adults 18-49 (and adults 25-54, too) since 2003 (though there were no Wednesday episodes from 2004-2007 or 2009). Its 2.6 adults 18-49 rating was second for the night only to America’s Got Talent which scored a 2.8 rating with adults 18-49 at 9pm, but that was down 22% from last week’s 3.6 adults 18-49 rating.
After bouncing back last week, So You Think You Can Dance fell 25% against the increased competition to a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating.
8:00 CBS Big Brother 2.6/9 – 7.25m
FOX So You Think You Can Dance 1.8/6 – 5.52m
9:00 NBC America’s Got Talent 2.8/8 – 11.01m
FOX So You Think You Can Dance 1.9/5 – 5.41m
America’s Got Talent outpaced SYTYCD by half, even while suffering its own big drop. Yikes. Maybe the EIGHT Emmy nominations SYTYCD received today will attract some needed attention? I hope so. Nigel Lythgoe’s dance competition show is my favorite summer diversion.
