The Net dominated May 2015 by strong double-digit percentages in Adults 18-49 (1.7/6), beating runner-up CBS by 31% (1.3/4) and NBC by 42% (1.2/4) and Fox by 70% (1.0/3).

In addition, ABC's "DWTS" was May's most-watched unscripted series and the No. 2 show overall, outdrawing both installments of NBC's "The Voice" and Fox's "American Idol."
