Thursday Ratings: SYTYCD Wins the Night, but Drops Year to Year

Ratings are in from TV By The Numbers

On FOX, the season premiere of So You Think You Can Dance earned a 2.4 18-49 rating, down 27% from last year’s premiere (which earned a 3.3 rating).

On ABC, the series premiere of talent competition  Duets  earned a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating. For comparison purposes, the opening episodes of The Voice and The X Factor earned 4.6 and a 4.4, respectively.

So You Think You Can Dance was higher in the demo, while Duets had slightly more viewers.  That year to year drop in viewers for SYTYCD is worrisome, although the decent demo may save it from cancellation. It still easily won its time slot.
