Thursdays have become the province of FOX this summer thanks to dancers and fifth-graders, and this Thursday was no exception.

FOX won the night with a 5.7 rating/10 share in primetime, beating out CBS' 5.1/9. NBC finished third but was well off the pace at 2.9/5. ABC, 2.6/5, finished fourth, and The CW trailed at 1.2/2.

In the adults 18-49 demographic, FOX's 3.2 rating led by a comfortable margin over NBC's 2.1. CBS was third at 2.0. Neither ABC, 1.1, nor The CW, 0.7, made much of an impression.

CBS took the lead at 9 p.m. with "CSI," 6.5/11, which edged FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance," 5.9/10. ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" rerun, 2.8/5, tied for third in households with two episodes of "The Office," but the NBC comedy had more total viewers. A "Supernatural" rerun closed out The CW's night.

At 10 p.m., a "Shark" repeat on CBS scored a 5.5/10. The finale of "Studio 60" on NBC averaged 2.7/5, beating the 2.6/5 for ABC's "Men in Trees."
