Tuesday TV Ratings 9/26/23: Dancing with the Stars Strong in Return to ABC, The Voice Steady, Celebrity Name That Tune Slips (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Moving a reality staple with high ratings to Disney+ seemed like a grave error from the start, but ABC corrected this mistake on Tuesday night by bringing 'Dancing with the Stars' (0.64) back to broadcast television for the first time in nearly two years. The move clearly paid off as 'Dancing' was the highest-rated program of the evening and proved that there is still an audience for it on traditional TV. Though the series did drop 31% from its September 2021 premiere (0.92), this performance is still remarkable given how much ratings have declined as a whole since 'Dancing' last aired. The alphabet network closed out the night with a 'Celebrity Family Feud' rerun (0.33). NBC's 'The Voice' (0.60, 0.00) was even with Monday's premiere and led into 'America's Got Talent' (0.56, 0.00). 'Talent' was steady with last Tuesday. On Fox, 'Celebrity Name That Tune' (0.19, -0.01) lost a hundredth and led into another repeat of '9-1-1: Lone Star' (0.13). 'Inside the NFL' (0.06, -0.01) and 'The Swarm' (0.05, -0.02) slipped on the CW. CBS re-ran 'FBI' (0.22), 'FBI: International' (0.18), and 'FBI: Most Wanted' (0.14).

Finals Update: 'Dancing With the Stars' (+0.1) and 'America's Got Talent' (+0.1) adjusted up.
