DWTS Season 12, 2011 – Dancing With The Stars Down In TV Ratings for May 9-15th

Below are the TV Ratings compiled by the Nielson for the week of May 9-15th. Dancing With The Stars Monday night show took a dip last week from 1st to 3rd! The Results show fell a notch from 4th to 5th. American Idol has taken over the top spots. NCIS continues to be dominate in the ratings too. I have a feeling next week’s ratings might be worse for Dancing With The Stars with all the shanagans they are pulling? :( (Heidi’s Note: The viewers for the performance show are down a bit, but I think the viewers for the result show are actually up a bit. It’s not that DWTS is crashing, it’s that AI is getting stronger as they head into the finale, I believe.)
