Bachelorette Steps On Dancing 'S Toes
In an apparent effort to provide a big lead-in for the season premiere of The Bachelorette , ABC compressed Dancing with the Stars final "performance" episode to one hour Monday night. (A two-hour season finale, which will reveal the winner, is set to air tonight.) Dancing drew 22.15 million viewers, beating all of the other network competition combined. But half the Dancing audience bailed out at 9 00 as The Bachelorette attracted 11.12 million viewers in its first half hour. By the final half hour, its audience had dropped to 8.17 million.
