TV Ratings: 'Dancing With the Stars' Returns to Premiere Low
Dancing With the Stars was a bit humbled in its return on Monday night. Though the ABC series was still the night's most watched broadcast outing, averaging 14 million viewers, it fell six-tenths of a point from last spring's debut to a premiere low 2.0 rating among adults 18-49.
