    YES THE RIGHT COUPLE WON DANCING WITH THE STARS. NETX YEAR THEY SHOULD JUST DO REGULAR PEOPLE. WOULD MAKE IT MOR INTERESTING. TURNING OUT TO A POPULAR CONTEST INSTEAD OF A DANCE CONTEST

    • al says:

      Who wants to see regular people? Boring

    • Jane L. says:

      If I wanted to see regular people dancing, I’d just take a dance class. And there’s plenty of great non-celebrity dancing on So You Think You Can Dance.

    • Mr. Tran K says:

      Nastia Liukin was the wrong person to go home last week. She deserves to be in the final three and blame it on the voters.

  2. et al. says:

    Other sources are reporting a 0.7 for izombie. Are you possibly looking at the 25-54 numbers? Those were 0.8.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      I never look at 25-54; life is too short. It was simply a typo. (On my keyboard the 7 is right next to the 8, ugh.)

  3. Nancy Weese says:

    When I was watching and waiting for Tom to announce the new winners, I was wishing for Rumer and I am happy Rumer and Val won, they were my favorites all along.

  4. Boiler says:

    I think the CW should sell their pone or two shows to someone else and shut down. If they thought HoD numbers bad wait til next year

  5. ROSE LOONEY says:

    dwts i don’t watch anymore they dance and dress digusting and trashy you r taking the romance out of dancing. no one goes out like that ww

  6. Jake says:

    So maybe there’s a trend starting, where people stop watching “reality TV” or whatever this kind of thing is called, and networks go back to making scripted shows….

  7. Chris R says:

    Yes the right couple won. Val and Rumor were great

  8. Kathy says:

    Wonder why DWTS producers No Derek Hough No Mark Ballas

  9. John says:

    They got rid of all the good contestants so it wasn’t an exciting competition in the end. You knew who was going to win. I stopped watching after week 9.

  10. DWTS is becoming too commercialized. Trying to nurse it for all its worth.
