Ratings: 'Dancing With the Stars' waltzes away with another win, 'Gossip Girl' dips

ABC’s Dancing with the Stars once again won the night in total viewers, according to preliminary overnight ratings (Note: Fox’s line-up was affected by a baseball game overrun and true program ratings won’t be available until later today). Dancing averaged 16.5 million viewers for the night. Meanwhile, CBS’ comedy The Big Bang Theory is emerging as a major ratings player in its new, cushy, post-Two and a Half Men time slot. Theory saw 13.1 million viewers last night, a slight dip of 700,000 from its hit lead-in. In less happy news, The CW’s Gossip Girl saw its ratings dip below 2 million viewers last night.
