Dancing With The Stars Hits Record Low!

| Filed under: Dancing With The StarsThe VoiceReality TV

DWTS Lowest Ratings Premiere

Well, it turns out Urkel’s star power didn’t bring in quite the audience that was expected on Dancing With The Stars!

The reality series had its LOWEST-rated season premiere EVER last night, out of all 14 seasons!!!

Not good…!

With 18.5 million total viewers, DWTS was down a whopping 34% from last spring’s premiere and down 13% from its fall premiere!

18.5 million viewers isn't BAD, of course…but the show has sure slipped significantly!

Is the cast just not up-to-par this season or are viewers just tuning into The Voice, which shares the time slot, instead?

What do U think???

    That because this season the Cast SUCK..no one intresting or current. I wont even waste my time

  2. 2

    Mind you it was the best first show from all season thus far. Even the judges were commenting the same. I enjoyed it tremendously.

  3. 3

    I think people may have seen the cast list, and just not thought on the surface they would be any good. However—Big Surprise last night! The performance level overall was very high. I, for one, am excited to see what happens.

  4. 4

    Never my favorite show, but after the Jersey shore and the infections of the Kardashians showed up…ABC is so OOOVER

  5. 5

    Nope the cast and dancing is GREAT this time around…could it be all the soap fans ABC has irritated beyond belief by cancelling All My Children and One Life to Live?

  6. 6

    The cast is just not up-to-par this season in my opinion. Don't they take TiVo and DVR into account when it comes to ratings now? When you aren't even DVRing it anymore…

    I had heard that were still trying to level the floor after last year's Chaz Bozo appearance, and that the show was cancelled. That's probably why a lot of people didn't watch.

  8. 8

    I can't stand the judges, especially Bruno. 80% of these people aren't "stars". They take a freakin' 6 week hiatus in between seasons and they have two a year! Talk about over kill. Those reasons are enough to keep me FAR away from that show.

    It was a great show. Everyone was really good. Best season ever, meaning, there was no one who sucked. I missed laughing, but I was impressed.

    It's got to be for both reasons. The Voice is a HUGE show right now, and this season's DWTS cast is not very strong, in terms of star power. However, like a lot of people have already commented, they are surprisingly good dancers. Hope that will be enough to get people interested.

    Sorry I'm not missing the Voice. So I voted for my favorite couple and tape it. Meanwhile back at the voice….

    All I can say for last night is William Levy!!! Whoa!

  12. 12

    I didn't even know it was back on until a friend told me.I was out last night with friends and would have missed it anyway. My friend said it was the best first show ever and that all the contestants are actually good dancers.

    There's no conservative on the show, so there's no one for the libs to bully, and spew their hatred and venom on.

  14. 14

    Re: Matrix – That's funny, cause weren't the republicans bullying chaz bono last year?…

  15. 15

    Best first show ever. Ratings do not always reflect the quality of the show. I will remain a dedicated viewer…and catch The Voice on DVR, so I can fast forward through all the chatting and get to only the vocal performances. (That is the only way I can watch this indulgent display)

    They need to only do one a season. There are way too many reality competition shows on now so viewers are picking and choosing. It's overload
