From perfect tangos to imperfect Sweet 16 parties, ratings were up across the board last night.
Dancing with the Stars topped all programs with 20.2 million viewers, those Two and a Half Men (14.4 million) actually wasn't that far behind.
Among other primetime pickings:
- House (12.2 million), 24 (11.2 million), Rules of Engagement (11 million), The Big Bang Theory (9.8 million), How I Met Your Mother (9.2 million) and One Tree Hill (2.3 million) all hit their season averages, or fared slightly better.
- Gossip Girl (2.5 million) gained a few hundred thousand eyeballs.
- Heroes (6.3 million) continued to sag.
