Ratings are in from TVByTheNumbers
CBS topped the night with adults 18-49 and total viewers led by a Big Brother was steady versus last Thursday with a 2.6 adults 18-49 rating. Two days of Lady Gaga on Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance didn’t boost the ratings much, Wednesday’s episode was 5% higher than the previous week. The preliminary 1.7 adults 18-49 rating for last night is 6% higher than last week, though an adjustment of another tenth up in the finals wouldn’t be surprising.
ABC’s Expedition Impossible rebounded 23% from last week’s season low to a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating. Rookie Blue was steady versus last week, but at a season-low tying 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.
So You Think You Can Dance pulled in 5.29 million viewers last night.
Forget Gaga. The fantastic dancing keeps me coming back to SYTYCD after week. Season 8 has been one of the best yet. I am disappointed this season’s excellence is not reflected in the ratings.
