The biggest show on The CW in months is ... a reborn version of a show that's been around for 25 years and stars guys who are well out of the network's target demographic.

The rebooted "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" scored surprisingly good ratings for The CW Tuesday night, scoring the net's biggest audience of the summer by far. The audience didn't really stick around for the premiere of dating show "Perfect Score," though.

Also Tuesday, the MLB All-Star Game was up a little from last year (pending updates for the live broadcast). "America's Got Talent" was even with last week in adults 18-49 and up in viewers for NBC.

FOX scored 10.25 million viewers and a 6.4 rating/10 share in households for the night, topping second-place NBC (7.9 million, 4.7/8) by a comfortable margin. CBS took third with 6.5 million viewers and a 4.4/7. ABC (3.3 million, 2.3/4) came in fourth, and The CW trailed with 1.9 million viewers and a 1.1/2.

FOX also led the 18-49 demographic with a 3.0 rating. NBC finished second with a 2.0. ABC and CBS tied for third at 1.0, while The CW posted a 0.7.
