“Dancing With the Stars” opened its spring season to pretty solid ratings Monday. The show earned a 2.0 rating among adults 18-49 for its premiere, improving on its 2016 spring opener (1.8) and nearly matching last fall’s 2.1. It was also up among adults 18-34, and it closed the gap with nightly leader “The Voice” (2.4) — trailing by 0.4 vs. 0.9 last spring and 1.2 in the fall.
“DWTS” also gave its lead-out a bit of a bump. “Quantico” (0.8) was up 0.2 vs. its last episode, pending updates.
The other networks didn’t have very good nights. All of CBS’ comedies scored season lows, while “Scorpion” maintained its 1.1 from a week ago. “24: Legacy” had a season-low 0.8 on FOX, and “Supergirl” tied its season low at 0.6. “Taken” was — you guessed it — also at a season-low 1.0 for NBC. “Jane the Virgin” (0.3) “APB” (0.7) each held steady with their last episodes.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.9/7||1.6/6||1.1/4||0.8/3||0.5/2|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
