Ratings: House, Smash and Dancing Bounce Back
With CBS in repeats Monday, House, Smash and Dancing with the Stars all saw improvements, but failed to top The Voice.
The Voice was the top-rated show of the night, remaining steady with 10.1 million viewers and a 3.7 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. Smash (6.1 million, 2.1) rose 11 percent from last week's series low, helping NBC win the night in the demo.
Who made a comeback on Dancing?
Also rebounding from a series low was Dancing (17.3 million, 3.0), which gained about a million more eyeballs — and was the night's most-watched show — and inched up 3 percent in the demo. A 20/20 special on Dancing drew 10.9 million viewers and a 2.1.
With an episode that revealed Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard) has cancer, House (6.6 million, 2.3) jumped three-tenths in the demo from last week, while lead-in Bones (7 million, 2.2) was flat.
On The CW, Gossip Girl (1 million, 0.5) and Hart of Dixie (1.2 million, 0.5) both fell a tad to tie season lows.
In cable news, Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Veep premiered Sunday to a respectable 1.4 million viewers.
