Fox won last night with two hours of So You Think You Can Dance, whose first face-off with NBC’s America’s Got Talent at 9 PM ended in a draw. Dance (2.8 rating/9 share in 18-49, 7.1 million viewers overall) was down 7% from the show’s Thursday premiere last week. Talent (2.8/8) suffered a steeper decline, 22%, from its Tuesday premiere.
No other program cracked the 2 rating point mark. They were all reruns with one exception, ABC’s Happy Town, which may as well have been. The original episode of the cancelled midseason drama drew a 0.8/2 in 18-49 at 10 PM, by far the lowest rating for any show on the Big 4 networks last night.
