Ratings: ABC Takes Back Total Viewers With ‘DWTS’

ABC took back its total viewer post last night thanks to “Dancing With the Stars.”

Last week, NBC’s “SNL Election Special” screwed everything up, handing the “Voice” home an outright Monday win. This time, ABC finished second in the key 18-49 demographic — NBC won another Monday by that important Nielsen metric.

NBC was first in ratings with a 2.0 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 8.3 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. scored a 2.3/8 and 10.1 million viewers. At 10, “Timeless” received a 1.2/4 and 4.8 million viewers.
