With Dancing With the Stars and the 100th episode of Castle, ABC was Monday’s most-watched network (6th time in 7 weeks), topping runner-up NBC with The Voice and Revolution by 2.2 million viewers. The Net ran a competitive #2 on the night in Adults 18-49, beating Fox’s 8-10pm drama lineup (+5% over Bones/The Following). For the 3rd straight Monday, ABC’s DWTS was the most-watched TV show and Castle was the night’s most-watched scripted program.


Building from its first hour to its second hour in viewers and young adults, ABC’s Dancing with the Stars once again ranked as the most-watched show in its 2-hour slot, outdrawing The Voice for the 2nd week in a row in head-to-head competition.
