Wednesday's ratings recap:

" So You Think You Can Dance averaged 7.96 million total viewers over its 90-minute run, a week-to-week increase of 460 thou. Leading out of that, some 760,000 appeared to forget the Lyrics, though the sing-along still claimed the No. 2 spot in the 9:30 half-hour.

" Next Best Thing's next-to-last episode served up a typical 7.07 mil.

" American Inventor (6.1 mil) was up 370K. That led into Traveler (3.78 mil), which picked up 750K for its season (series?) finale. Whoa, did the exculpatory recording blow up with that guy?! Bummer.
