Dancing With The Stars Ratings Up 1 Million Viewers from Fall Premiere

Dancing with The Stars opened big ratings-wise last night, despite concerns there were no water-cooler worthy contestants in this year’s cast.  Via TVBytheNumbers:

Dominating each of its half-hours from 8-10pm, ABC’s 12th season opener of Dancing with the Stars towered over second-place CBS in the time period by 13.5 million viewers (22.3 million vs. 8.8 million) and by 89% in Adults 18-49 (5.1/15 vs. 2.7/8).

DWTS’ audience surged from its first hour to its second hour, gaining 2.8 million viewers (20.9 million to 23.7 million) and by 19% in Adults 18-49 (4.7/14 to 5.6/15).

DWTS was up from its most-recent season opener in September by 1.0 million viewers (21.3 million on 9/20/10).  In fact it was Dancing’s 3rd-most-watched premiere ever.
