Dancing With the Stars was down one celebrity from last week, but the ratings were up by nearly a million Monday night, according to overnight data. That translated to week-to-week increases of more than a million viewers for both its lead-out, the Bob Saget comedy Surviving Suburbia, and Nathan Fillion’s Castle. Fox finished the night behind the Alphabet with a special episode of Bones that led into a regularly scheduled 24. CBS came in a close third by spending the night in repeats, save for a new Rules of Engagement. NBC took a distant fourth.
