ABC’s Dancing with the Stars rose up to beat NBC’s The Voice for the first time this season in their weekly Monday 7 to 9 p.m. face-off.

DWTS drew 354,120 D-FW viewers opposite The Voice’s 332,873. But the NBC sing-along as usual fared better with advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, winning by a score of 101,622 viewers to 85,744.

The 9 p.m. golds then went to Fox4’s local newscast in both total viewers (226,637) and 18-to-49-year-olds (53,987) in competition among the Big Four broadcast networks.

Over on TXA21, the Dallas Mavericks clinched a post-season spot with a gritty road win at Utah. The game pulled in 127,483 total viewers and 69,865 in the 18-to-49 age range to outdraw Fox4’s news during the 9 to 10 p.m. portion of the game. The Texas Rangers did almost as well on Fox Sports Southwest despite starting later in a comparatively inconsequential game against the drab Seattle Mariners. The Rangers averaged 120,401 total viewers and 66,690 within the 18-to-49 motherlode.

Local ratings for Bravo’s premiere of Real Housewives of Dallas were not available.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 ran first at 10 p.m. in total viewers while Fox4 was tops with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 again ran the table at 6 a.m. and NBC5 swept the 5 p.m. competitions. The 6 p.m. firsts went to TEGNA8 in total viewers and NBC5 with 25-to-54-year-olds.
