Ratings: Revolution Rises; Dancing, CBS Shows Hit Season Highs
Revolution closed out the first half of its freshman season on a good note.
The NBC drama, which hit a series low last week, rose 12 percent for its midseason finale, drawing 8.7 million viewers and a 2.9 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. The show will now take a four-month (yes, four) hiatus before returning in late March with The Voice.

The Voice also rose, nabbing 12.2 million viewers and a 4.2 to help NBC win the night in viewership and the demo.
Dancing with the Stars hit a season high for its performance finale with 16 million viewers and a 2.6. It was, however, down 26 percent from last fall's Monday finale.
All of CBS' shows were up, with 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly and Hawaii Five-0 hitting season highs. This is likely due to a Big Bang Theory rerun, which drew 9 million and a 3.2 in Partners' old slot.
Fox's Bones (7.9 million, 2.3) and The Mob Doctor (4 million, 1.2) enjoyed bumps as well.
