ABC dances to weekly win

The finale of "Dancing With the Stars" was the #1 show of the week and the previous day's last day of actual dancing competition was close behind, helping to carry ABC to a weekly win in Households and across all major demos - and it didn't hurt that "Desperate Housewives" was in the #3 slot for the week. In HH, ABC scored a 7.7 rating and 12 share, followed by CBS at 6.8/11, NBC 5.3/8, Fox 5.2/8, Univision 2.1/3, CW 1.7/3, MyNetworkTV 0.7/1, Telemundo 0.5/1, a tie by Ion and TeleFutura at 0.4/1 and Azteca America 0.1/0. For the key 18-49 demo, it was ABC, Fox, NBC, CBS, Univision, CW, a tie by Telemundo and MyNetworkTV, TeleFutura and a tie by Ion and Azteca America.

Here are the week's top 20 shows.
