Ratings Chart Attack!

Dancing, Skating Score on Wednesday

So You Think You Can DanceFox’s “So You Think You Can Dance?” continues to hold steady, topping another night, while Game Six of the Stanley Cup Finals handily trumped last year’s trophy-deciding game on Wednesday.

“Dance” averaged a 3.5 rating/11 share in the 18- to 49-year-old demographic, according to preliminary Nielsen numbers. That’s on par with last week, which was on par with the show’s season premiere. Fox finished first with a 3.5/11 for the night.

NBC’s (3.0/9) coverage of Game Six of the Stanley Cup Finals (3.0/9) is up 131% over last year’s Game Five, in which the Anaheim Ducks won the Cup. Live ratings are more volatile, however, and an increase in the ratings may occur once final numbers are released.

CBS (1.7/5) and ABC (1.7/5) tied for third with repeats, save for ABC’s “Men in Trees” (1.4/4), which was down a tick from last week.

The CW finished fifth with a “Top Model” repeat and “Farmer Wants a Wife” (0.7/2), down 22%.

I like this show a lot but I have to say that I think in a head to head battle with America's Got Talent the later would win. It has much more variety. I guess we will get a chance to see since the show is starting up tomorrow night. I guess the two shows won't actually be up against each other but we can sort of check with what ratings each of them get.
