Dancing With The Stars Beats American Idol!

| Filed under: TV NewsAmerican IdolPamela AndersonThe Gosselins



ABC's Dancing With the Stars drew in higher ratings than its fierce competitor Fox's American Idol for the very first time! Nearly 23 million people watched DWTS last week while Idol brought in 21.8 million on Tuesday and 20.5 on Wednesday.

We think it might have to do with the particularly interesting cast on DWTS this year including Pamela Anderson, Buzz Aldrin and of course Kate Gosselin!

Which show have U been tuning in to?

    Not surprising….Idol is a big snooze this season.

  2. 2

    neither - they're both as gay as you

    DWTS has been way better. I quit watching Idol when Adam Lambert lost and I was right to do it cause Idol is BORING this year.

  5. 5

    Dancing with the stars!! I haven't watched American Idol since Carrie Underwood won, it's getting old…..

  6. 6

    I've been watching Idol.. Though I leave the room on certain people. Actually last night I totally left the house! I hate how some people get by on just their looks.

  7. 7

    oh yeah but i watch american idol

  8. 8

    I don't watch either.

  9. 9

    Both of them blow donkey balls, but I would rather watch DWTS. American Idol is TERRIBLE this year. Boring contestants, boring "themes" and Ellen.

    thanks to the haters in the world … that is what is keeping it afloat … and who do the haters love to hate ???

    hate kate

    If Kate Gosselin is such a draw then how come their shows ratings were in the toilet? If that many people were interested in her I have a feeling her shows ratins wouldn't have been beaten by "The Weather Channel" for it's last episodes.

    Sorry that buzz is gone. I loved him!

  13. 13

    Hmm, think the adorable Evan Lysacek is bringing viewers to DWTS. IDOL is bor-r-ing!

  14. 14

    Idol sucks this year, but I would still rather watch people sing than stupid celebrities try to dance.

  15. 15

    I miss the days when Kate Gosselin looked like a contestant on "America's Next Top Hedgehog." She is revolting. I don't understand how either she or Jon is qualified to parent even one child, let alone eight. For me, the G in Gosselin stands for "Gross."

    What I wanna know is who the heck keeps voting for Kate? She's a horrible dancer even at her best! She definitely should have went home before Shannen.

  17. 17

    Well I've never watcheds Aerican Idol at all…love me some dancing though and think Aiden Turner is well worth the watch…

  18. 18

    that's because everyone is watching to see if we will get lucky and have Kate voted off. Buzz….really???? he dances so much better considering his age. Oh….she probably only won because of the 40 extra votes she gets from her kids.

  19. 19

    Stopped watching sincd Kandles Kate is still on. Bleeeeech.

    Not true: "American Idol dominating another Tuesday was never in doubt, but with the CBS Tuesday lineup back in full swing there were other questions, including how V would fare.

  21. YUCK says – reply to this


    this is the best season of american idol since they had on little kim with the exception of that ugly gerbil looking rycroft.
    My dream cast for dancing with the stars are
    1. roseanne barr
    2. carmen electra
    3. michael vick
    4. brian austin green
    5. mark mc grath
    6. suzanne summers
    7. nicollette sheridan (although I doubt ABC would have her on now)
    8. ricky martin
    9. katie couric (she would be the kate goselin)

    Re: YUCK – oops I meant best season of dancing with the stars. I cant say anything about american Idol because I have never watched it.

  23. 23

    American Idol of course!!

  24. 24

    I think the theme for idol this week was destined to be boring so I don't blame people for watching DWTS… I stuck to idol.

  25. 25

    Ellen is a ratings killer! She sucks bigtime.

    And why watch her when you can see Chelsie Hightower or Cheryl Burke dance in sexy outfits?

  26. 26

    Should have given Paula her money.

    IDOL got boring after a few seasons, it was just so repetative and honestly the people who got through to the top whatever is NOT that good, there are way better talents out there, see the British x-factor pulled out Leona Lewis and then there was Susan Boyle. THOSE are what we want to see, not a sap story to pull that contestant through … I'm with DWTS!!!! so much worth watching on the progress of the celebs and hey celebs lol … Kate is probably the biggest ratings puller because OMG she is HORRIBLE, WORST then Buzz, WHY CAN'T SHE MOVE … and yet still in the competition. I think the audience wants to keep her around to somehow pound her into actually improving and getting better self worth and it did wonders for Kelly Osbourne because she totally looked gorgeous and had better self esteem. Kate snap out of it!!! she just walks
