TV Ratings: ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ hits series low, ‘Extant’ slips

July 17 18:22 2014

So You Think You Can Dance struggled on Wednesday night, while Extant dipped with overall viewers in its second outing.

CBS won the night against little competition, averaging a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.54 million viewers. Big Brother was even at a 2.0 rating, with Extant following with a 1.5 demo rating, HitFix reports. The demo number was the same as the premiere, but overall viewership slipped a little.

Though the show premiered low with a 1.5 rating, DVR numbers boosted the debut episode to a 2.2 rating and 11.9 million viewers.

NBC followed in a distant second with a 1.1 rating in the demo and 5.55 million viewers. Repeats of America’s Got Talent gave way to an even, if not consistently low, 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demo from Taxi Brooklyn, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Struggling on the night, Fox averaged a 1.0 rating and a miserable 3.63 million viewers. The lone original for the night was SYTYCD, which interested few and fell to a new series low with a 1.0 demo rating.

ABC didn’t have any better a night with a 0.9 rating and 3.53 million viewers. The network aired mostly repeats, except for Motive, which fell to a 0.7 in the demo for the evening.
