On a Wednesday night when none of the broadcast networks was able to crack a 2.0 average rating for prime time in the 18-49 demo, Fox fared slightly better than the rest, TVbytheNumbers.com reports.

CBS’s “Big Brother,” with a 2.5 average rating in 18-49, and NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” with a 2.4, were the only shows all night to break the 2.0 mark.

Fox, which had two hours of “So You Think You Can Dance,” wound up with a 1.8 average rating for the night in adults 18-49, edging NBC (1.7 average), CBS (1.6), Univision (1.5) and ABC (1.3). CBS won total viewers with an average of 6.4 million to 6.1 million for NBC, 5.4 million for Fox, 4.5 million for ABC and 3.8 million for Univision.
