Did The Situation's Exit On DWTS Hurt Ratings??

| Filed under: TV NewsThe SituationReality TV


Wait, WHAT??

Although ABC won Monday night ratings in the 18-49 demo with 16.7 million viewers, it seems as if Dancing with the Stars took a fairly significant drop, getting its lowest rating of the season.

With The Situation leaving the show last week, could it be possible that viewers had only been watching to see the Jersey Shore star stiffly dance his way to the bottom three every week??

Hmm, we're not sure, but it does seem a little odd…

Did U watch DWTS for The Situation??

    No I did not watch because of him. I was actually ticked when I found out he was going to be on it. Every week I was ready to see his busted face go!

  2. 2

    Heck no! Everyone was watching the Rangers spank the Yankees!! I watched DWTS after the game was over on my DVR! No one cares about the situation!

  3. 3

    I can't imagine people were watching just to see The Situation. Don't know why ratings weren't as high but I did my part by watching. :)

  4. 4

    probably the same reason that DWTS got ratings when Kate Gosselin was on. There was someone on that people recognized. Most of the others, with the exception of Audrina, (and disney dude for the younger ones) have not been on ANYTHING for a while. He might be a stupid douche, but a recognizable one. Surprised they let him go so soon.

    yup. i watched it because of the situation. he's a cool funny guy. now, except for bristol, the show is not as exciting anymore so i'm taking a break.

  6. 6

    Yup- he's the only reason I've EVER watched that show.

  7. 7

    MLB Playoffs. GO RANGERS!!!!!

  8. 8

    are people that desperate for entertainment … the situation is a non-event

  9. 9

    Hey Perez I miss the good old days when you drew on people's faces and cut them a new one. BRING BACK THE TIRADES. This being nice stuff is bullshit

    i sure stopped watching it since he left:(

  11. 11

    ha, he's the only reason I watched. Wanted to see if he would be able to drop the guido thing (wondering how much of an act it is) and put it all out there. I have NEVER watched dancing with the hasbeens (except for clips of kate gosselin) until this year. And, i'll probably never watch it again since they just have trained dancers winning, rather than people who actually are learning to dance (like situation)

    I sure did watch for the Sitch ..but since Jennifer Grey's gonna take it why bother watching now? a lot of people that never watched that show were watching for Mike

  13. 13

    That show is a hot mess this season so why bother watching??? The only great dancer and obvious winner will be Jennifer Grey. I was recording on my DVR but decided to skip and have something else better to record.

  14. 14

    I didn't even want to watch this season just not to see that dumb guy!

  15. 15

    I was watching just because of him as were several of my friends. None of watched last night and dont care who wins. He was the most entertaining.

  16. 16

    I watched only for Margaret Cho and The Situation. I have now stopped watching. The stars this season suck, they really are zlist who need to bring back their career…lame.

  17. 17

    he cant dance end of story..stars should be voted on dancing not popularity, but I have heard its a popularity contest….I think the final 3 will be Brandy, Audrina and Jennifer. Just not sure which order.

  18. 18

    Hell NO, first and fore most he is not a star. I watch to see who really is a dancer and most improved. Not nut cases like the Situation.

  19. 19

    Yes, I was watching it because of him! I'm originally from Staten Island, his home town — so I was curious to see how he would do.

  20. 20

    Im sure he would like to think thats why. His 15 minutes are fading fast.

  21. 21

    In a word, no.

  22. 22

    Hell yeah, the same jagoffs that watch Jersey Shore (yes you Mario) only watched to see that no talent, steroid shooting, walking STD trap retard look like a person with an IQ of 31 look like a fool.

  23. 23

    Re: Christine528 – Yup, I consider Staten Island my hometown too. Lived in Dungan Hills, in between changing to new countries, and graduated from New Dorp HS.
    My mother's biggest fear is I would marry an Italian, that sounded like Mike…a Guinea. She was happier when I moved to Tehran, with my dad, so I wouldn't end up with one of those! lol
    I did not watch DWTS last night.
    -Audrina Partridge is an awful dancer really and ends up in ugly positions. The judges are propping her up to pretend there really is a contest going on.
    -For a tall sports athlete, Kurt Warner is quite greaceful and has a great smile connecting with the audience.
    -Bristol needs to lose 25 lbs. She has zero heat goin on, even with Mark trying hard to loosen her up.
    -Jennifer is great, but I don't care about her, because I still can't recognize Jennifer, with that nose job…it's like a stranger.
    Who care if she wins.

  24. 24

    Ha! My father and I predicted this would happen! I did not watch this week! I was so upset when he got kicked offf. At least he was entertaining unlike snoozefest Bristol palin, Kurt Warner, Etc. I dont even care for the show now!!

  25. 25

    Probably also because Cablevision and Fox are in a disagreement and the channel has been shut off.

  26. 26

    yep I only watched for him… he was the most entertaining

  27. uyeah says – reply to this


    I a word -YES.

  28. 28

    I only watched because of him. I had never watched one episode before this season.

  29. 29

    Re: luvs2tango – LOL I love you. GREAT POST!!!

  30. 30

    Honestly I only tuned in to watch the situation! I don't even care about watching that show now

  31. 31

    We are watching baseball! GO RANGERS!

  32. 32

    I did. I cant stand that show BUT seeing mike this juice head guido dancing like the tango was the funniest thing I have ever seen.

  33. 33

    Don't let "the situation" get a big head…we are all watching the playoffs!!

  34. 34

    yes. i watched for the situation lol. i never saw dancing with the stars until he was on it.

  35. 35

    I hit submit by mistake. Too much weed and bourbon & diet coke I guess.
    -I miss the Guinea and his disarming charm.
    -Kurt Warner does NOT connect with the audience.

  36. 36

    I believe Bristol and The Situation were the ones who brought the ratings in this season!

  37. 37

    yup! i only watched for him and wasss sooo mad when he got off the show! so i stopped watching!

  38. 38

    yup! i only watched for him and wasss sooo mad when he got off the show! so i stopped watching!

  39. 39

    Absolutely NOT. I am now watching it now that he's off the show. There was a ball game on so that is probably why the ratings went down a bit. Everyone thinks that those Jersey Shore idiots are all that. They aren't and they will be gone soon. The only ppl out there that like these idiots are the ones that are just as stupid and dumb as they are. They can relate to them.

  40. 40

    Since he's gone , I personally have no more interest in that insipid show .

  41. 41

    I absolutely was watching the show for him. it doesn't matter that he's a douche bag but he is a goodlooking guy sorry.

  42. 42

    I kind of liked the situation… he was entertaining.

  43. 43

    Yeah, I stopped watching when he got kicked off. He was the reason I started watching that damn show to begin with!

  44. 44

    lol thats the reason i was watching

  45. 45

    the only reason i watched. hehe!
