Ratings: Charlie Brown and his pumpkin stun 'Dance' wannabes into submission

Posted on

ABC had its best Tuesday night in weeks with the magical/creepy combo of It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and Dancing With the Stars: The Results to help ease viewers into the Halloween spirit. The Great Pumpkin (word to yo’ pumpkin?) drew in over two million more viewers than So You Think You Can Dance (which averaged 6.5 million viewers over two hours), though Pumpkin sadly did not perform up to usual standards. Last year, 20 percent more people tuned in for the Charlie Brown special, which at one point could draw in around 11 million viewers. NBC’s The Biggest Loser came out a winner Tuesday, increasing its audience by about a million from 8-10 p.m. for an average of 9.8 million viewers. CBS still performed mightily by airing three procedural repeats.
