ABC’S DANCING IS NO. 1, BUT AUDIENCE IS OLD

November 26, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

ABC was the most-watched broadcast network Monday night as 14.24 million viewers tuned in to watch the two-hour Dancing with the Stars. But as usual, it was not the most-watched network among viewers in the key 18-49 age group. That honor went to NBC’s The Voice, also two hours, which drew three million fewer viewers but connected with a 3.3 rating and a 9 share among the 18-49 demo. Dancing, by contrast, posted a 2.2/6, which wasn’t even good enough for second place in the money group. CBS’s How I met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly and Mom averaged a 2.6/7 during the 8:00 p.m. 10:00 p.m. time period. Meanwhile on cable, ESPN was expected to trounce the broadcast networks with Monday Night Football again. (Preliminary figures are due to be released later today.) The Fox News Channel was also drawing viewers by accusing President Obama of appeasement for negotiating with Iran over its nuclear program, complete with stock footage of Neville Chamberlain’s return from Munich after negotiating with Hitler. On Saturday, Fox News trounced CNN and MSNBC in the ratings as the three cable news networks covered President Obama’s announcement of the international agreement on Iran.
