Over at NBC, The Voice (10.1 mil, 3.7) was virtually unchanged, but Smash rose 3 percent in viewers (6.1 mil) and 11 percent in the demo (2.1).
Rebounding from last week’s all-time performance low, ABC’s Dancing With the Stars drew 17.2 million viewers (up from 16.3 mil) and a 3.0 rating (up from 2.8). A special Dancing-themed 20/20 followed with 11 million and a 2.2.
