A lineup of reruns gave CBS an easy ratings victory Thursday, but FOX was able to snag the demographic title with its "Dance"-off.

CBS drew a 5.8 rating/10 share in households and 8.73 million viewers for the night, beating FOX (4.1/7, 6.44 million) by a pretty good amount. NBC came in third with a 2.6/5. ABC managed only a 1.7/3, but that was good enough to beat The CW's 0.9/2.

FOX led the adults 18-49 demo with a 2.1. CBS, 1.6, finished second, and NBC was third at 1.3. Neither ABC nor The CW cracked the 1.0 mark.

A pair of "How I Met Your Mother" reruns averaged 5.1/10 for CBS at 8 o'clock. NBC's "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here," 3.3/6, edged FOX's "Bones" rerun, 3.2/6, for second. "Ugly Betty" drew a 1.9/4 for ABC, holding off "Smallville" on The CW.

CBS' "CSI," 6.3/11, scored the night's biggest audience at 9 p.m. FOX moved into second with the "So You Think You Can Dance" results show, 5.0/9 (which had the night's best 18-49 numbers). Reruns of "The Office" and "30 Rock" were third for NBC, a little ahead of "Grey's Anatomy," 1.7/3, on ABC. The CW got a 0.8/1 from "Supernatural."

"The Mentalist," 6.1/11, capped the CBS sweep of the night at 10 p.m. "The Listener" earned a 2.7/5 for NBC, and "Private Practice" came in at 1.6/3 for ABC.
