Monday Ratings: Dancing With the Stars Premiere Down from Last Spring

Last night’s Dancing with the Stars premiere ratings are down double digits compared to last spring. However, the show is up 19% in total viewers and 24% in the key demo over last fall’s All Star edition. Next week, DWTS will go head to head with The Voice on NBC. Should be an interesting battle.
