SYTYCD Premier Ratings Down vs Last Year

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE: Pictured L-R: Jason Derulo, Paula Abdul and Nigel Lythgoe in the Chicago auditions for SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE: THE NEXT GENERATION airing Monday, June 6 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. ©2016 Fox Broadcasting Co. CR : Chuck Hodes/FOX

The Bachelorette (1.6 in adults 18-49) led the night but was down 0.4 from its premiere last week. Memorial Day means lower numbers across the board–which is why premiering a show on a major holiday seems like a terrible idea. The return of So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation now with kidlets! only garnered a 1.0, down 3/10ths from last summers premiere. Hopefully the numbers will rise next week, but considering The Bachelorette’s ratings were more than a half a point higher, it doesn’t appear the Jr. format reboot is giving the struggling show a boost.
