Ratings: 'Dancing' finale hits season highs for ABC

Posted on

Thanks to a two-hour Dancing With the Stars finale (meaning no new episode of The Forgotten to drag down numbers) , ABC earned its highest Tuesday numbers for the fall season in both total viewers and Adults 18-49. At 8 p.m., V held steady from last week in both areas. The three-hour lineup was enough to give ABC an edge over CBS for the night, despite strong showings as usual for NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles. CBS’ freshman drama The Good Wife maintained all of its audience from last week, and even rose 8 percent from last week’s showing in Adults 18-49.
