TV ratings: 'Dancing,' 'House,' 'Men' all rise Monday

Fast National ratings for Monday, Nov. 15, 2010 ABC kept its hold on the total-viewer lead Monday but lost the adults 18-49 race due in part to improved numbers for "House" on FOX and "Two and a Half Men" on CBS. "Dancing With the Stars" was steady in the demo and actually rose a little in viewers Monday, but ABC fell a bit because the show was only 90 minutes long this week. The network still led the night by a good margin, though, averaging 15.3 million viewers and a 9.7 rating/15 share in households. CBS (10.6 million, 6.5/10) came in second, followed by FOX (8.4 million, 4.9/7). NBC finished fourth with 5.3 million viewers and a 3.3/5. The CW (1.7 million, 1.2/2) was at the back of the pack. In the adults 18-49 demographic, CBS matched its 3.4 rating from last Monday but ended up in first because ABC dipped to a 3.2. FOX took third with a 3.0. Neither NBC (1.6) nor The CW (0.9) was really competitive. To Read More Click Here.

'Dancing': Brandy Earns Perfect Score for Tango with 'Emotional Depth' (VIDEO)

The judges of 'Dancing With the Stars' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC) happily doled out several 10s to the semi-finalists of season 11. Brandy Norwood and Maksim Chmerkovskiy faltered slightly in their Paso Doble, but made up for it with the Argentina Tango. The pair thrilled the audience with fabulous drama, graceful extensions, a fearless upside-down dip and one move on the judges' table. Bruno Tonioli described their performance as "voluptuous, full of flavor, great emotional depth." He added, "Len is absolutely right the way you extended your body ... right to the limit and back up," dramatically leaning into Len as he spoke. The judges then presented Brandy and Maks with a row of 10s for a perfect score of 30. Source & Video

Backstage at Dancing With the Stars: Bristol Steps Up

It's a shame the cameras weren't trained on the Dancing With the Stars judges for the beginning of Bristol Palin's paso doble last night. Because you would've seen all three of them, jaws dropped, astonished. "I never thought I would see this!" raved judge Bruno Tonioli after her performance. "The little lamb is turning into a tigress!" The truth is, the girl who comes across as reserved and shy has a lot more bite than viewers realize. When asked how she feels about being referred to as Season 11's "spoiler" — referring to the fact that she's still in the competition when others, technically better, have gone home — Palin bristled.

Dancing's Derek Hough: Show's Focus on Jennifer's Injuries Has Been "Overkill"

It was a long time coming. The season's first perfect 30 was finally awarded on Dancing with the Stars last week. "Jennifer [Grey] and I really couldn't believe it, especially for the Instant Dance," Derek Hough tells "I was so proud of her and I'm so impressed. It was a tough week. We were waiting for the doctors to give her the green light for her knees, and they did, and she just killed it." The Dirty Dancing star's injuries and doctor visits have been well-documented — perhaps to a fault, Hough says. To Read More  Click Here.

Can Bristol Palin Win 'Dancing With the Stars?'

Bristol Palin, 'Dancing With the Stars' champion?  Considering that the American public just backed Republicans in a big way, a Palin victory just might happen.  If 'Dancing With the Stars' were truly a dancing competition -- and not a popularity contest -- the daughter of Sarah Palin would easily have been sent home before Florence Henderson, Audrina Patridge, Rick Fox and Kurt Warner.  Instead, the underdog, who often seems clearly uncomfortable on the dance floor, has outlasted them all. While she's continued to demonstrate improvement, she's also facing some very tough competition. She has continually ranked at the bottom of the scoreboard and yet fans keep saving her from elimination. To Read More  Click Here.

Why Brandy Will Win DWTS Season 11 - Wetpaint

It's Semifinals time! Let's take a look at the final four on Dancing with the Stars Season 11 and explain how each one could win.   Why Brandy Will Win: 1. The Maks factor. To a lot of longtime fans, it's time for Maks to win. He's been in the finals three   times — thank you, Brooke — and keeps missing out. Maks is passionate, ambitious, dedicated and sexy as all get-out. He wants this win, arguably more than any other pro, and fans want to help him get it. There's also the other side of the Maks factor — sympathy for Brandy. She is caught in the middle of the Maks vs. Carrie Ann crossfire. It's not her fault he can be a little   too   passionate sometimes. We still remember how Maks spanked her (not in a hot way) and pushed her so hard even Len stepped in to check him. She's going to deserve a trophy after all of this. To Read More Click Here.
