Ratings: Dancing Rises, The Voice Lowers, Gossip Girl Holds Steady

On this relatively quiet Monday night, Dancing With the Stars — with 13.2 million total viewers and a 2.4 rating — rose 14 percent in the demo to hit its best number since the season opener.

Time slot rival The Voice meanwhile (12 mil/4.2) dropped 12 percent week-to-week.

Over on The CW, 90210 (950,000 viewers, 0.4 rating) was down 10 and 33 percent, while Gossip Girl (904K/0.4) added a few eyeballs and was flat in the demo.

Fox’s coverage of the NCLS averaged 8 mil and a 2.3 based on fast nationals, while the broadcast networks’ debate coverage amassed 28.7 million total viewers, down 19 percent from Debate No. 2 (with Fox out of the mix this time, mind you).

    Now I don’t feel as worried for Nikita when 90210 is getting similar ratings on Mondays

    • 90210 has been on for 4 years. Nikita has been on for 2. Not to mention, 90210 is MUCH cheaper to make, while Nikita would be MUCH more expensive. Nevertheless, Nikita and 90210 are most probably looked in for a 6th and 4th season, respectively, due to HUGE international sales and syndication.

        Nobody cares about 90210 anywhere.

        Well, after seing these ratings, I’m very happy and confident that L.A. Complex wil get another seasons, cause it made almost the double on the demo *_*

        • mia says:

          LA Complex is Canadian and not dependent on US ratings for renewal. Plus, its about 1/3 the cost to make than anything else on the CW.

      • A says:

        With low ratings happening early on in the season, 90210 could easily end its run come May. This would be more than enough notice for the writers. As for Nikita, it is most likely getting a 4th season due to syndication and international success. But I honestly think 90210 won’t return next year. Besides it seams that the CW has some great shows for next year that could easily replace it. Perhaps Nikita would be moved up in the weekly lineup.

    Thank god this is it for GG!!! So far this season, with the exception of Georgina’s snarkiness, has been a waste of an hour.

  3. I have a feel that 90210 and GG will rise once DWTS and The Voice are finished. Though their ratings aren’t perfect, they’re acceptable for veteran shows and CW standard. I think that once The Carrie Dairies replaces GG that 90210 will rise.

  4. Apparently 30 million people across all three major networks tuned in to see Obama talk about bayonets and Romney express his love for teachers. So I can’t understand the logic of GG rising and 90210 sinking…

    My question is why don’t they show the ratings for some shows that don’t suck? Alphas, How I Met Your Mother, and Revolution all aired last night. 90210 is absolute garbage… almost as much as Dancing with the Stars and The Voice. Not quite, but almost.

  6. Matt says:

    Maybe I acted to soon, Mother and Revolution didn’t air. But still obnoxious that something real and good on TV like Alphas is all-but ignored for white trash TV.

    The NFL game was carried by the ABC station in Detroit, so ABC’s numbers are inflated. My guess is that it is another 2.1.

    I will continue to watch 90210 until the CW pulls the plug. Its my favorite guilty pleasure!

    No Gossip Girl Recap? Anyways poor Nelly Yuki

  10. A Man says:

    I really missed Revolution! Can’t wait for next Monday!

  11. Ed says:

    I find myself caring less and less about 90210 with each passing episode. The writing isn’t as good as it once was (S3) and if anything the story lines are predictable. It would be nice if the producers would focus on the writing more so than “Which POP singer can we have appear this week” I say put it out of its misery at the end of this season. It’s about to cross the 100th episode line so syndication is already a go.
