Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff's samba was no match for Derrick Rose's second-consecutive playoff mambo Monday night.

In a stunning upset, Game 2 of the Bulls-Pacers Eastern Conference first-round series Monday night beat ABC mega-hit "Dancing With The Stars" 18.51-17.39 in television ratings, according to Comcast Sports Net.

The Bulls-Pacers game, which was televised by both Comcast and TNT, drew a combined rating of 18.51, with a 21.45 "peak" rating at 11:15 p.m. -- just about the time the game concluded, according to Comcast. That equates to 751,308 homes in the Chicagoland area.

Comcast Sports Net will broadcast Game 3 of the Bulls-Pacers series Thursday night, with a pregame show beginning at 5:30 p.m. Tip-off is at 6 p.m.
