Dancing with the Stars provided ABC with a boost, but it wasn’t enough for ABC to get out of third place. CBS continued to be its consistent self. It only came in first place for two nights this week with FOX and ABC each taking two nights themselves. However, the difference between CBS and FOX and ABC is that the nights where CBS didn’t finish #1, it finished a strong second. FOX and ABC often found itself in third and fourth place. Not going to cut it. NBC was just horrible this week as it was firmly in 4th place, even losing a night to The CW! Ouch!

Dancing with the Stars also wasn’t good enough to defeat American Idol for the #1 show either this week. It ended up #2, just ahead of another ABC show, Grey’s Anatomy. Overall the numbers were solid for most shows. Things are really starting to heat up now as we make our final push to the season finales. Stay tuned…
