Univision ties ABC for third place
On a rerun-filled Wednesday, "So You Think You Can Dance" pushed Fox to a ratings win, while CBS' "Dogs in the City" dropped considerably from last week's series premiere, according to preliminary numbers.
Airing "So You Think You Can Dance" from 8 to 10 p.m., Fox took first place in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, posting a 2.4 rating /7 share — down 11 percent from last week, but enough to give the network the top ratings spot for the night. "SYTCD" drew 6.5 million viewers, the highest total viewership for the night, which made Fox the most-watched network overall.
CBS' "Dogs In the City" at 8 dropped 31 percent from last week's series premiere with a 0.9/3, and took 5.1 million total viewers. The network's primetime slate consisted of repeats otherwise. The network came in second in ratings and total viewers with an average 1.2/3 and 5.8 million total viewers.
Both ABC and NBC ran repeats throughout the night. ABC tied Univision for third place in ratings and for fourth place in total viewers, with both networks receiving a 1.2/3 and 3.2 million.
NBC took fifth place in ratings and third in total viewers, receiving a 0.9/3 and 3.8 million.
