ABC averaged a 6.4 rating/11 share for the night, beating FOX, 5.9/10, for the top spot. CBS took third with a 4.9/8. NBC, 2.8/5, came in fourth, and The CW brought up the rear with a 1.1/2.

FOX led the 8 p.m. hour with "So You Think You Can Dance," 5.8/10. A repeat of the most recent "Lost" drew a 4.5/8 for ABC. "The Big Bang Theory" and "How I Met Your Mother" averaged 3.2/6 for CBS. An "Office" rerun and "Last Comic Standing" put NBC in fourth, ahead of a "Smallville" repeat, 1.2/2, on The CW.

"Lost," 7.1/12, moved ABC to the front at 9 p.m. "So You Think You Can Dance" improved slightly to 6.0/10, keeping FOX in front of CBS and "CSI," 5.9/10. "Last Comic Standing" drew a 3.0/5 for NBC. A "Supernatural" rerun on The CW fell off a little from its lead-in.
