Dancing Waltzes Off With Ratings Victory

Dancing with the Stars' s final two broadcasts of the season landed at the top of the Neilsen ratings list for total households last week, but only one episode -- Tuesday's results show -- landed on Nielsen's separate list for adults 18-49 -- at No. 8. (Each episode drew nearly identical numbers of viewers -- about 19.6 million.) With 20.3 million viewers, NBC's Sunday Night Football was the most-watched show of the week among both total adults and those 18-49 (although, in a ratings anomaly, it placed third on the households list). CBS's Two and a Half Men returned to the upper ranks of both lists -- just after football on the ratings list of younger viewers and at No. 6 on the households list. For the week, CBS topped both lists, with an overall average rating of 6.0 and a 10 share. ABC ranked second with a 5.3/9. NBC placed third with a 3.6/6, followed by Fox with a 3.2/5.
