'House,' 'Smash' ratings climb (a little)
With CBS airing repeats Monday night, the ratings for Fox’s House and NBC’s Smash improved slightly, while The Voice continued to rule the night in the adult demographic.
The Voice (10.1 million viewers, 3.7 adults 18-49 rating) held steady (any week without a drop is a good week) and Smash (6.1 million, 2.1) ticked up a tad. ABC’s Dancing With the Stars (17.3 million, 3.0) was up a bit and ranked as the night’s most-watched program, followed by 20/20 doing a Dancing behind-the-scenes special titled Dance Floor Confessional (10.9 million, 2.1) — surely a in-depth no-holds-barred investigation of the reality hit … right? Fox’s Bones (7.2 million, 2.2) was stable and House (6.5 million, 2.3) climbed 15 percent. On The CW, Gossip Girl (1 million, 0.5) and Hart of Dixie (1.2 million, 0.5) both declined a tenth of a rating point.
