Thanks to Dancing, ABC Wins Premiere Week

| Filed under: TV News

Last week was 'premiere' week in the world of television and here's how it all went down.

ABC was numero uno! On average, the alphabet network was able to get 12.3 million people to their channel.

CBS came in #2 with 11.3 million on average tuning in during premiere week.

NBC was in third place. They averaged an embarassing 8.3 million that week.

ABC was propelled to the top spot by the 'strong' (compared to their rival nets' shows) opening by Dancing With the Stars and Grey's Anatomy (but, mind you Grey's opened 18% down from the previous season).

Congrats Mouse channel!

    I think Dancing with the Tards would get HUGE ratings, helmets and shit.

    my devotion lies with the huge dung pile that perez makes for us and the one in which we wallow around in all day.

  17. 17

    I can't believe people still watch this show!! Well my in-laws do so I guess I can. I tried to watch it once and almost fell asleep, and ONLY tuned in hoping to see Heather Mills' leg fly off. What a joke.



  18. 18

    Lincoln is on the $5 bill. Franklin is on the $100 bill. I guess if Obama becomes president they'll put that nigga on a foodstamp.

    Re: SBFREAKSgirl925Re: harrybalsacRe: amylala – You guys are on fire this afternoon. It's been a great day around here today. I've laughed so much I don't need to do my crunches tonight. ;-)



  26. 26

    fresh



  27. 27

    Cloris needs to go she is horrible! Stop with the pity votes people!



  28. 28

    NBC sucks so much! They have the stupidest shows ever that are rip offs of other shows and their message boards suck! they have retarded ass people moderating and running those boards! NBC disgusts me!



  29. 29

    fuck everybody who hates dancing with the stars that shit is fuckin awesome!!!! cloris is hilarious, kim is disappointing & lucci should win it all!! the only thing good on cbs is letterman which isn't all that great & the only thiing good on nbc is the office, leno & duh, heroes!!!



  30. 30

    The show is cheesy as hell, but I still watch. Cloris is super annoying and she needs to go ASAP.



  31. 31

    Cloris Leachman is terrible and painful to watch. It's like watching prom night at the senior citizen's home. Time for her to go home.



  32. 32

    I luv the name Cloris - it makes me feel tingly



  33. 33

    Cloris was always so funny on Mary Tyler Moore show. I am amazed at her ability to move so well at her age. I just hope she tones down the "Vaudville Act" before she hurts herself from the physical comedy. Good Luck to her though.



  34. 34

    I think you all need to give Cloris Leachman a break! The woman is 82 years old! AND in amazing health for her age! If I were watching, I'd have to cheer for Cloris! She has a long history as an extremely funny comedienne and actress! For those of you too young to know anything about her, she was also very attractive in her day. Out of college, she was Miss Illinois - competing for Miss America.

    Re: SBFREAKSgirl925 – I can't believe you actually typed this statement. It is shocking & embarrasing that so many Americans are raging ignorant bigots.

    This show is huge where I work. My co-workers really get into this. They even vote for their favorites. Every week DWTS is a discussion at work.
