Although So You Think You Can Dance placed 9th and 13th when it came to overall viewing, it took the top two spots with adults 18-49.  A repeat of NCIS was the most-watched show overall,  but was number ten among adults 18-49.

Congratulations to the NHL, the second game of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings not only made the top 20 with adults 18-49, it made the top ten at number 7!  I know it's summer, etc, but that's still good news for the NHL.  Better news still would be if Pittsburgh wins a couple of games so that the series can extend to six or seven games and Pittsburgh needs to win at least one of the next two matches to get back on NBC on Saturday.  Games three and four are airing on Versus.
