The spring premiere of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars tied its lowest-rated premiere ever Monday night. The low-star-wattage 18th series debut, which also marked the replacement of host Brooke Burke-Charvet with Erin Andrew, delivered an adults 18-49 demo rating that tied the show’s fall 2012 premiere as an all-time low (see Annie Barrett’s recap for more) and was down 22 percent from last year’s opener.

Dancing was crushed by NBC’s The Voice, which rose 8 percent in the demo this week to win the night, then led into The Blacklist which easily topped 10 p.m.

Otherwise, some downbeat news for broadcast. Every CBS comedy (except How I Met Your Mother, which is on its home stretch) tied or marked a series low. Fox had low-rated outings of Bones and The Following. See full chart for details:
