'Dancing With the Stars' still scores big

For its season premiere in March, "Dancing With the Stars" drew an impressive 15.4 million viewers. Monday's edition attracted 15.9 million, the show's biggest audience this season. It was also the most-watched episode of any unscripted series this season.

The ABC dance contest was the night's most-watched show and put the Disney-owned network on top for the night in total viewers.

But NBC won the 18-to-49 age group with "The Voice," which had 11.6 million total viewers, and "The Blacklist," which drew 10.9 million. Orlando's Sisaundra Lewis ended Monday's edition of "The Voice" with a well-received version of "Oh Sherrie."

"The Blacklist" edged ABC's "Castle," which entertained 10.4 million, according to updated ratings.

The prime-time averages in total viewers: ABC with 14.1 million, NBC with 11.3 million, CBS with 6.1 million, Fox with 4.4 million and The CW with 888,000.

CBS's best were new episodes of "2 Broke Girls" with 7.8 million and "Mike & Molly" with 7.6 million. "The Following" ended its season on Fox with 4.8 million; a "Bones" repeat had 4 million fans.

In Orlando, "Dancing With the Stars" was way out in front with 278,900 viewers. "Castle" was a distant second with 183,900. Rounding out the top five were "The Voice" with 156,200, sitcom "2 Broke Girls" with 117,250 and "The Blacklist" with 112,800.

Favorites of the local 18-to-49 age group were "2 Broke Girls," "Dancing With the Stars," CBS' "Friends With Better Lives," the Miami-Charlotte NBA playoff game on TNT and the San Antonio-Dallas NBA playoff game on TNT.
