Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance?” reality show last week helped the broadcast network edged out CBS to win the biggest audiences among adults 18-49.

The Wednesday edition of “Dance” was the top-rated series for the week in the age group with a 3.8 rating, a number that includes live viewing and same-day viewing via digital video recorder, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Fox also took the next three spots with “Hell’s Kitchen” (3.5), Thursday’s “Dance” (3.4) and a repeat of “House” (3.3).

Fox scored a 2.2 in adults 18 to 49 for the week, followed by CBS (2.1), which filled out much of the rest of the top 25 with its drama and comedy repeats plus multiple episodes of “Big Brother 7.”

NBC was the third-highest rated network for the week among the age group with a 1.9, followed by ABC (1.7), Univision (1.4), UPN and The WB (0.7) and Telemundo (0.4).
