TV ratings: 'Dancing' rules Monday again, 'Chuck,' 'HIMYM,' 'Law & Order: LA' all low
"Dancing With the Stars" dominated Monday's ratings as it typically does, but the competition put up less of a fight than usual: Shows like "How I Met Your Mother," "Chuck," "House" and "Law & Order: LA" all struggled.
"Dancing" was off a bit from last Monday's show, but it still led ABC to dominant win for the evening. The Alphabet averaged 17.85 million viewers and an 11.3 rating/17 share in households, more than double the audience of its nearest competitor. CBS (7.6 million, 4.8/7) came in second, a little ahead of FOX (7.5 million, 4.5/7). NBC finished fourth with 5.3 million viewers and a 3.5/5, while The CW's repeats scored a meager 686,000 viewers and a 0.5/1.
ABC also led the adults 18-49 demographic by a wide margin, posting a 3.9 rating to second-place FOX's 2.5. CBS, 2.3, took third, followed by NBC, 1.4, and The CW, 0.3.
