It was Tuesday’s only broadcast to deliver higher than a 5 share of the young-adult audience.

At Fox, “So You Think You Can Dance” (1.5/5 in 18-49, 4.4 million viewers overall) was flat with last week’s sub-par score and down from two weeks ago (1.7).

    On America’s Got Talent The Asian Lady with the unicycle, plates and cups balancing act, if you have ever been to Cirque de Soleil you have seen that. When I saw it there were like 6 young asian women, like in there 20’s. Much younger than the woman tonight, but still did the same thing. They were on unicycles with small plate, bowls and tossing them back and forth and catching them.It was very exciting when I saw it the first time, like 4 years ago. But as for tonight this is the 2nd time I’ve seen it.
