The season's second episode of "So You Think You Can Dance" was up from last Thursday's premiere and gave FOX a huge advantage in young viewers and a slim lead overall on Wednesday night.
Despite a regionally desirable Stanley Cup, NBC's hockey coverage came in low, while CBS' series premiere of "Dogs in the City" drew a less-than-impressive Wednesday audience.
Among adults 18-49, FOX averaged a 2.6 rating for Wednesday night, far ahead of the 1.3 rating for CBS in the key demographic. ABC's 1.2 rating and the 1.0 rating for NBC followed, while The CW averaged a 0.5 key demo rating.
Overall, FOX averaged a 4.3 rating/7 share and 6.97 million viewers, edging out the 4.4/7 and 6.545 million viewers for CBS for the night. There was a big drop to ABC's 2.4/4 and 3.57 million viewers and then to NBC's 1.7/3 and 2.71 million viewers. The CW averaged 1.15 million viewers and a 0.8/1 for Wednesday.
[Univision averaged 3.15 million viewers and a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 for the night.]
8 p.m. - CBS' "Dogs in the City" premiere averaged 6.66 million viewers to win the 8 p.m. hour overall, but finished a distant second with a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49. FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance" was second overall with 6.48 million viewers and easily won the hour with a 2.4 key demo rating. ABC's repeats of "The Middle" and "Suburgatory" averaged 4.415 million viewers and a 1.2 key demo rating, bettering the 2.92 million viewers and 1.0 key demo rating for NBC's Stanley Cup coverage. The CW's "America's Next Top Model" repeat averaged 930,000 viewers and a 0.4 key demo.
9 p.m. - FOX's second hour of "So You Think You Can Dance" averaged 7.46 million viewers and a 2.8 rating among adults 18-49 to win the 9 p.m. hour.

ABC's repeats of "Modern Family" (4.41 million viewers and a 1.5 key demo) and "Happy Endings" (2.81 million and a 1.1 key demo) were third overall and second in the demo. NBC's Stanley Cup coverage slipped to 2.43 million viewers and a 0.9 key demo. The CW's "America's Next Top Model" drew 1.37 million viewers and a 0.6 key demo rating.
10 p.m. - CBS closed primetime back in first with 7.03 million viewers and a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49 for a repeat of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."
