Scoreboard FOX CBS NBC ABC CW
Total Viewers (million) 8.82 7.85 4.87 4.79 1.09
Rating/Share: Adults 18-49 3.0/10 1.9/6 1.8/6 1.5/5 0.4/1

So You Think You Can Dance easily lifted Fox to victory Wednesday night in both viewers [8.82 million over CBS with 7.85 million] and demo adults 18-49 with 3.0 rating / 10 share [again over CBS with 1.9/6].

CBS performed unusually well for the summer in the demo last night. Big Brother is certainly a big demo improvement over Price is Right, and it may have helped the rest of the night as well.

NBC cannot be pleased. Baby Borrowers weakened considerably from last week, and Celebrity Circus fell from its already low perch. For ABC, Primetime Crime picked up a bit, but its overall nightly results were crushed by the reruns from 8-10.
