Another two-hour sing-along with NBC’s The Voice topped Monday’s prime-time charts opposite ABC’s Disney music-themed Dancing with the Stars.

The Voice drew 390,572 D-FW viewers from 7 to 9 p.m. while DWTS took the silver in those hours with 319,559 viewers. Among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, The Voice likewise called the tune with 195,402. A new episode of CBS’ 2 Broke Girls ran second in this key demographic from 7 to 7:30 p.m. before DWTS took runner-up honors from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

CBS’ new Friends with Better Lives continued to crater at 7:30 p.m. with the fewest viewers in both measurements among the network’s four sitcoms.

ABC, CBS and NBC all finished the night with drama series repeats, allowing Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast to take the top spots in total viewers (191,735) and 18-to-49-year-olds (91,188).

TNT’s “midseason finale” of Dallas, set to return in August, climaxed with an eye-popping three-way, a big fire in the Ewings’ Southfork living quarters, Sue Ellen on a drunken binge and a pill overdose. The 8 p.m. first-run episode drew 120,722 total viewers and a 9 p.m. repeat tacked on another 63,912.

On Fox Sports Southwest, the Texas Rangers’ lackluster 7-1 home loss to the Seattle Mariners averaged 142,026 total viewers.

NBC5 had one of its brighter days in Monday’s local news derby results. The Peacock ran the table at 5 and 6 p.m. in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

NBC5 also outdrew kingpin Fox4 at 6 a.m. in total viewers and added a 10 p.m. gold in the 25-to-54 demographic.

The other two wins went to WFAA8 in the 10 p.m. total viewers race and Fox4 at 6 a.m. among 25-to-54-year-olds.
