Singer and actress, Brandy was the ninth and final celebrity to be eliminated from the ABC dance competition this season. Rising over its year-ago telecast in viewers and young adults, DWTS: The Results increased its overall audience year to year for its 9th consecutive airing.
Growing week to week, ABC's freshman Detroit 1-8-7 registered as the 2nd-most-watched TV show in the 10 o'clock hour, bettering NBC's sophomore drama, Parenthood, for the 8th consecutive telecast this season (by +3.6 million viewer advantage). The ABC drama also topped its NBC drama competition with Adults 25-54 for the 7th time in 8 telecasts this season, including each of the past 4 matchups. Detroit 1-8-7 continued to draw more viewers to Tuesday's 10 o'clock hour, than on the same night last year, and on average has improved the slot for ABC by 6% over the same point last season.
