Ratings: Big Brother Hits a High, SYTYCD Returns Flat, Oh Sit! Stands as The CW's Summer Best
NBC’s America’s Got Talent weathered its Olympics-induced hiatus just fine, returning to form on Wednesday night with 8.33 million total viewers and a 2.2 demo rating, besting all comers in both measures.
Big Brother placed second for the night, up about 10 percent week-to-week to 5.83 mil/2.1, and hitting a Wednesday high for the season.
So You Think You Can Dance‘s Top 14 dance-off drew 4.72 mil and a 1.7, which was pretty much flat versus the competition’s pre-Olympics break.
The debut of Oh Sit!, with 1.26 million total viewers and a 0.5 rating, gave The CW its best numbers of the summer in any time slot and its highest-rated reality-TV premiere of 2012. (For comparison’s sake, Remodeled opened in January with 700K and a 0.3, while last fall’s H8R did 1.3 mil and a 0.6.)
