Many of the Dancing with the Stars’ fans stuck around to see Body of Proof, the new Dana Delany drama that has her playing an icy medical examiner. The series earned an admirable 3.0 rating/8 share in the demo and 13.8 million viewers – enough for it to beat The Good Wife on CBS and Parenthood on NBC, according to early results.
Speaking of the Julianna Margulies drama, the Braverman clan seems to be catching up to her: Wife and Parenthood both earned a 1.9/5 in the demo, which was a series low for the CBS series. Wife averaged an 9.9 million while Parenthood lured 4.7 million (that’s all?).
After airing a special dubbed Dancing With The Stars: The Story So Far (?), the DWTS results show earned a 4.2/11 and 18.8 million viewers — enough to help ABC win the night in the demo (3.3/9) and total folks (15.1 million). CBS was second with a 3.1/8 and 14.4 million, with originals of NCIS (3.8/11, 18.2 million) and NCIS: LA (3.5/9, 15.2 million). Fox aired repeats of Glee and Raising Hope, followed by an original of Traffic Light (1.1/3, 2.6 million).
The CW aired repeats of One Tree Hill and Hellcats.
