SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Premiere Ratings

Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance kicked off its “Next Generation” season on Monday with 3.7 million total viewers and a 1.0 demo rating, up from its Season 12 finale (2.4 mil/0.8) but down from its previous premiere (4 mil/1.3), hitting what must be all-time lows for a season opener.

TVLine readers gave the kid-centric edition an average grade of “D+.”

Leading out of that, Houdini & Doyle (2.1 mil/0.5) slipped 20 percent and a tenth to season lows.

Over on ABC, The Bachelorette (5.9 mil/1.6) was down 11 and 20 percent from its season opener. Mistresses opened Season 4 with 3.1 mil and a 0.7, up from its finale (2.7 mil/0.6) but down from its previous premiere (3.8 mil/0/9), both of which aired on a Thursday.

Elsewhere, CBS’ Person of Interest (5.4 mil/0.8) dipped week-to-week and NBC’s Stanley Cup Finals coverage (3.8 mil/1.2) was down sharply from last year’s Game 1 (5.6 mil/1.8).
