TV Ratings: Big Brother Leads Night; So You Think You Can Dance Finale Down Nearly 30%

 As was the case all summer, the finale of So You Think You Can Dance was down.  Its 2.4 rating with adults 18-49 was off nearly 30 percent from last year’s  finale on Thursday August 6, 2009 which posted a 3.4/11 rating/share among Adults 18-49 in the preliminary numbers.

FOX won the night with adults 18-49 and adults 18-34, but Big Brother was the night’s top show with adults 18-49 with a 2.6 rating (though from 9p-10p, SYTYCD pulled a 2.7 rating with w/A18-49).   The night’s most-watched show overall was a rerun of The Mentalist with 8.14 million.

Rookie Blue dropped 1/10th of a ratings point with adults 18-49 to a 1.7 rating to go along with it’s 6.15 million viewers.

Update:  sports on local affiliates (there were several NFL preseason games last night, too) likely impacted the ratings. I haven’t seen all the finals yet, but all of the NBC shows fell by 0.1 w/18-49 except “Parks & Rec” which dropped 0.2 in the final numbers to a 1.1 (the numbers below are still the overnight ratings).
