Ratings: Dancing Down From Last Year; 2 Broke Girls Hits Series Low
Dancing with the Stars' Season 16 premiere topped Monday, leading ABC to an easy win.
The two-hour episode drew 16.8 million viewers and a 3.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. It's down four-tenths from last spring's opener, but up 24 percent over the fall's low-rated All-Stars premiere. The show delivered ABC's biggest audience and second-highest rating in the time period since April, according to the network.
Lead-out Castle (11 million, 2.2) was down a tenth from its last new episode three weeks ago.
Most of CBS' lineup returned down, with 2 Broke Girls (8.3 million, 2.7) and Mike & Molly (8.2 million, 2.4) hitting series and season lows, respectively. Rules of Engagement (6.6 million, 2.2) grew from last week, as did Hawaii Five-0 (8.7 million, 2.1), which hadn't aired in a month.
The CW's The Carrie Diaries (1.04 million, 0.5) scored a five-week demo high.
