Latin night, contestant's health scare compel viewers to watch ABC's 'Dancing With the Stars'

NEW YORK, N.Y. - A special Latin music night and a contestant's health scare have made for a big night on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."

The Nielsen ratings company says last week's telecast had just shy of 16 million viewers, making it the most-watched episode of an unscripted series on the air this television season.

Contestant Amy Purdy is a double-amputee and Paralympics athlete. She was sent to a hospital following back spasms in the episode.

NBC's Kentucky Derby coverage on Saturday had more than 15 million viewers. But that was down from last year's telecast.

"NCIS" is TV's most popular drama. "The Big Bang Theory" is the most popular comedy. The CBS shows led in the ratings last week.
