dwts all stars ratings 092412 TV ratings: 'Dancing With the Stars' premiere down Monday; 'Revolution' stays strong and NBC wins 18 49Fast National ratings for Monday, Sept. 24, 2012

What a difference a year makes: NBC scored a demographic win on the first official night of the 2012-13 TV season, more than doubling its adults 18-49 rating from opening night a year ago thanks to “The Voice” and “Revolution.”

“Dancing With the Stars,” per usual, helped ABC grab the total-viewer crown, but the premiere of its all-star season was well below both of last year’s debuts. CBS’ revamped comedy lineup was off some from its typical performance last season, with new show “Partners” in particular getting off to a soft start.

ABC led the night in viewers with 13.5 million and an 8.8 rating/13 share in households, but that average is down more than 3 million people from last year. NBC (11.05 million, 6.8/10) came in second, beating No. 3 CBS (8.4 million, 5.3/8) by a pretty good margin. FOX was a quiet fourth with 5.65 million viewers and a 3.4/5. The CW (517,000, 0.4/1) brought up the rear.

NBC scored a sizable win in the 18-49 demographic with a 4.0 rating. CBS finished second with a 2.7, edging ABC’s 2.6. FOX managed only a 1.7 and took fourth. The CW averaged 0.2.
