ABC was third with a 3.4/9, led by the final dance-off on Dancing with the Stars (4.3/12).

NBC was a distant fourth with an all-reality night of two hours’ worth of the low-rated American Gladiators (1.7/4) and Dateline (2.2/6).

The CW had a good netlet night with the finales of Gossip Girl (1.4/4) and One Tree Hill (1.5/4).
