DANCING CONTEST PROBABLY BEAT THE FOOTBALL ONE

Ratings for ESPN’s Monday Night Football are not yet in, but the telecast, which has been averaging more than 15 million viewers each week, apparently did not detract from ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. Monday night’s two-hour broadcast averaged a whopping 20.13 million viewers, peaking in the final half-hour with 21.48 million. The game also served as a strong lead-in for ABC’s Castle, which followed at 10:00 p.m., averaging 11.78 million viewers, beating Hawaii Five-0 with 10.03 million. (That show is the most recorded show on the air, however, something that expands its seven-day ratings considerably.)
