So, this week’s gimmick is twitter voting for your favorite team dance – winner gets the encore. Jesus, will it ever end?? Listen up, DWTS, I’m on strike and I’m not participating in your stupid crap any more. Also, regarding last weeks pimping of pros not on this season?? The ratings:
Week 2 – 14.47 million viewers/2.4 in the demo
Week 3 – 13.91 million viewers/2.2 in the demo
Week 4 – 13.15 Million viewers/2.1 in the demo (BBall Championships)
Week 5 – 13.4 Million viewers/2.2 in the demo
Yep, still a downward trend over all. Don’t get me wrong – still great ratings relative to TV in general. DWTS is still a top 10 show and sneaks into the Top 5 at times. But whatever they’re going for -it ain’t working. Except to piss people off. And ensuring that Zendaya gets plenty of face time.
Did Andy and Victor reveal what they are dancing and I missed it??
ETA: So we don’t really know who’s dancing first and neither do the dancers, apparently. Both Zendaya and Aly are claiming the opening spot, so I guess we’ll wait and see.
ETA2: Aly says Whoops.
ETA3: This dance order is looking craptastic. Two Sambas in a row?? Why?? Even considering there is team samba later in the show, this is stupid. AND, since Peta first tweeted they were 2nd and then changed it to 3rd…combined with the Aly/Zendaya confusion, me thinks there is a whole bunch of tinkering going on.
Zendaya and Val – Cha Cha Cha
