TV Ratings: FOX masters the 'Dance' Thursday

There wasn't much competition for "So You Think You Can Dance's" seventh season premiere, which handily won Fox the ratings war Thursday night with okay numbers. A slew of reruns (including a strong episode of "The Mentalist") went up against the reality show, in addition to the series cliffhanger finale of ABC's "FlashForward," which pulled in lower ratings than the previous week's penultimate episode. NBC's "100 Questions" wasn't noticed by even less, sandwiched between sitcom reruns.

FOX averaged 8.2 million viewers and a 5.0 rating/9 share in households for the night. Next came CBS with 7.5 million and a 4.9/9, then ABC (3.8 million, 2.6/5), NBC (2.7 million, 1.8/3) and The CW (1.6 million, 1.0/2).

FOX also took the 18-49 demo with a 3.0 rating, far ahead of the distant second-place CBS, which had a 1.6. NBC had a 1.1, ABC a 1.0 and The CW trailed with a 0.6.
