dwts 3 26 ratings abc TV ratings: 'Dancing with the Stars,' 'Smash' down a bit, 'The Voice' wins 18 49Fast National ratings for Monday, March 26, 2012

ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” was down a bit from its premiere last week, but it still won the most viewers for the night. However, NBC’s “The Voice” still managed to garner the
most viewers in the 18-49 demographic once again.

NBC’s “Smash” was down a bit again this week with 6.35 million viewers — after announcing its renewal for a second season — and a 2.2 for the 18-49 demographic, while ABC’s “Castle” took the top spot for the 10 p.m. hour again this week. FOX’s “Alcatraz,” with its season finale — and possibly the series finale, since the show hasn’t yet been picked up for a second season — pulled in 4.7 million viewers during each of its two hours, down from 5.1 million for last week.

ABC won out for the night in total viewers with 15.8 million viewers and a 10.1
rating/16 share in households. NBC was second (9.98 million, 6.1/10), CBS
third (6.4 million, 4.1/6), FOX fourth (4.7 million, 2.9/4) and The CW (949,000, 0.6/1).

adults 18-49 win went to NBC, with a 3.7 rating, ahead of ABC with a 2.9, CBS with a 1.9, FOX with a 1.5 and The CW with a 0.4.
