ABC's Dancing with the Stars
aired its season finale last night and saw a significant rise in viewers. Not only that, but it beat NBC's The Voice
by a wide
margin (which is significant, and you'll see why). FOX's American Idol
, oddly enough, saw a slight dip in ratings from last week.
Dancing with the Stars
crowned football player Hines Ward as its champion last night. It was up 29% versus last week's penultimate episode, and up 15% from last year's season finale (which saw a series low), with 22.59 million viewers. Looks like DWTS
has still got it where it counts!

Beyond good ratings, DWTS
scored another victory last night -- it beat The Voice
by a huge margin. The Voice
was down 16% from last week, with a viewership of 8.68 million. This might not seem like big news, but The Voice
will be going head-to-head next year in their timeslots. Of course, DWTS
aired its finale, while The Voice
obviously did not. But the question remains: does The Voice
have any hope at all of standing up to Dancing with the Stars

Judging by last night's ratings for Idol
, viewers missed the fact that there was a schedule change, or there were more disgruntled Haley fans than previously anticipated. Idol
hit a series low for a finale episode, down 7% from last year's performance finale, with 21.41 million viewers. Can Idol
make up for it with the results show tomorrow?

NBC's The Biggest Loser
enjoyed a fairly successful season finale, up 11% from last week, with 9.05 million viewers. However, it was a series finale low, down 21% from last year's season finale.
