Good news for the Nigel Lythgoe summer dance show, So You Think You Can Dance. Last night’s premiere rating are in and they are up over last year’s.
Of course Fox, led by So You Think You Can Dance topped the broadcast ratings on the first night of broadcast primetime summer, it was the only new show on the English broadcast networks! The show’s 3.2 adults 18-49 rating was up 7% from last year’s premiere on 5/27/10, and the average viewership of 9.1 million was its best since 5/24/07.
Could the publicity around the return of the irrepressible Mary Murphy have something to do with the upswing?
