Fast National ratings for Wednesday, September 3, 2014.

FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance" got a solid bump for its latest season finale, but it was "Big Brother" leading CBS to a Wednesday win among young viewers and "America's Got Talent" pacing NBC's overall win.

"Big Brother" was down a hair from last week, while "America's Got Talent" was up a similarly tiny amount.

Meanwhile, Wednesday night saw bumps for NBC's "Taxi Brooklyn" and for The CW's "Penn & Teller: Fool Us."

It was, in fact, a series high for "Penn & Teller: Fool Us," which soared 30 percent week-to-week in total viewers.
