The Monday night Nielsen ratings are in new scripted episodes on the broadcast networks competing with THE VOICE and DANCING WITH THE STARS. Below is a roundup of April 23 ratings reports we have so far.
The CW’s combo of GOSSIP GIRL and HART OF DIXIE both averaged just over 1 million viewers and a 0.5 demo, down slightly from last week.
SMASH rose 3 percent in viewers (6.1 mil) and 11 percent in the demo (2.1).
SMASH did post an 11 percent increase, to a 2.1 rating from the 1.9 it sank to last week. But the signs were still not all good for the Broadway-based show. It dropped at the 10:30 half hour from a 2.2 to a 1.9, and it did not face the A-level drama competition it will encounter in weeks to come.
