Total Viewers (million) 8.73 6.99 6.95 4.46 1.81
Rating/Share: Adults 18-49 3.2/10 2.1/6 1.6/5 1.7/5 0.7/2

Unlike Monday night when reruns stomped reality, the tables were turned on Wednesday as Fox's So You Think You Can Dance delivered the night for both viewers [8.73 million] and adults 18-49 [3.2 rating/ 10 share]. Likewise, NBC finished second for both viewers and adults 18-49 with the reality duo of Deal or No Deal and Celebrity Circus.

CBS's reruns of Price is Right, Criminal Minds and CSI:NY delivered the viewers for a close third place finish, but the adults 18-49 stayed away and it finished fourth. ABC went with reruns of reality [Wife Swap, Supernanny] and managed only a weak third in the demo. The CW, who's phones are in the process of being disconnected, managed only 2.31 million viewers for Farmer Wants a Wife. Edit: As my partner points out below, and I recognize, those results for a CW show, and a summer one at that, are relatively quite strong!
