ABC may have won Nielsen’s Mirrorball Trophy on Monday, but its “Dancing With the Stars” premiere performed nowhere near as well as last year’s. Still, the Disney-owned broadcaster topped primetime outright, though the network was inflated in Detroit by “Monday Night Football.” The preliminary numbers for the net could slip a bit (further) when finale averages are available. For now at least, ABC was first in ratings with a 1.4 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 9 million, according to preliminary numbers. “DWTS” at 8 p.m. put up a 1.7/6 and 10.8 million. »
