the voice april 23 ratings TV ratings: 'The Voice' and 'Dancing With the Stars' rise Monday, 'Bones' up a little tooFast National ratings for Monday, April 23, 2012

Both “Dancing With the Stars” and “The Voice” improved their ratings a little bit Monday, with “DWTS” leading ABC to a total-viewer win for the night and “The Voice” carrying NBC to the top of the adults 18-49 pile.

FOX also saw its numbers rise a little as both “Bones” and “House” drew better than last week, possibly thanks to CBS airing a night of reruns. “Gossip Girl” and “Hart of Dixie,” however, went the other direction for The CW, falling a little from last week.

ABC delivered 15.2 million viewers and a 9.8 rating/15 share in households for the night to finish way ahead of NBC (8.8 million, 5.2/8) in viewers. FOX came in third with 6.9 million viewers and a 4.3/6. CBS’ rerun lineup (6.3 million, 4.1/6) was fourth. The CW drew 1.1 million people and a 0.8/1.

NBC’s 3.2 rating among adults 18-49 led the pack, beating out ABC’s 2.7. FOX finished third with a 2.2, followed by CBS at 1.7. The CW posted a 0.5.
