ABC’S DANCING WITH THE STARS DRAWS 17.06 MILLION VIEWERS

Some 17.06 million viewers were on hand for the two-hour spring season debut of Dancing with the Stars — the biggest audience for any ABC-TV broadcast since April 23, 2012. The premiere also boosted ratings for ABC’s Castle, which followed at 10:00 p.m. The drama drew 11.26 million viewers, far and away better than its chief competitor, CBS’s Hawaii Five-0, which often beats Castle in that time period. The numbers for the opening show may have been boosted by the fact that, unlike last season, Dancing‘s debut did not have to contend with competition from NBC’s The Voice.
