Dancing With the Stars Ratings

ABC’s Dancing With the Stars kicked off Season 19 on Monday with 13.6 million total viewers and a 2.4 demo rating (per finals), topping the night on both counts yet down 16 and 23 percent year over year and hitting a demo low for a premiere.

DWTS was also down from its March season opener, which did 15.4 mil/2.6.

    Hard to keep up ratings when Monday Night Football is on. DWTS was blacked out in our area in favor of MNF.

    Renewal for Under the Dome should be within the next few weeks, surely.

    I can see why this show is going down in ratings. In the last few years, the dances have been extremely suggestive, They have gone away from complete ball room dancing, and many comments are just plain crude from judges, to some of the stars. It never use to be like that. However, this is what happens all the time. Whomever is in charge, they want to spice it up with explicit sexual dances. Tonight, I thought it was the worse show ever. I even changed the channel until the dance with the two women, which, to me, was suggestive of a lesbian couple. Then Julieanne Hough’s dance was so suggestive. She was hardly covered. It would not have been so bad, if the bottom of her outfit, actually fit her. I don’t know what she is trying to do, but this is not the way to go with her career, unless, she has sold her soul to the devil, as many stars do for fame and fortune. I changed the station when she danced also. I also saw Val feeling her backside I believe. If this is the way whomever is in charge thinks the rating will go up, are sadly mistaken. I know people who quit watching a few years ago. I am trying to figure out who these people think they are.
