Ok, that is all for now. Let us know what you think. I continue to be saddened for how American Idol keeps dipping in numbers. I think this season has the best talent. Every contestant is so good and offers something different (in my opinion). Though I think what the show is missing the most is Simon, Paula, and Randy. *those where the days*

DWTS Premiere Up In Viewership From Last Opener, Monday’s Most Watched Show

This is such good news!! Note too how Dancing With The Stars rated higher than both telecasts of American Idol last week which is telling. From ABC MediaNet

ABC was the most-watched network on Monday and took second in Adults 18-49. ABC marked its most-watched Monday since November (since 11/25/13), drawing its 2nd-largest audience on the night this season.

“Dancing with the Stars” (8:00-10:00 p.m. – 15.0 million and 2.5/7 in AD18-49):

Up against competition from “The Voice” and one of the final episodes of “How I Met Your Mother” on St. Patrick’s Day, ABC’s 18th season premiere of “Dancing with the Stars” (15.0 million and 2.5/7) was up 6% in viewers and held even in Adults 18-49, compared to the last time that the show’s opener had to face “The Voice” in Fall 2012 (14.1 million and 2.5/7 on 9/24/12). The premiere of “DWTS” was the No. 1 most social broadcast series on Monday with 176,265 tweets.

Please note: Last Fall the show premiered prior to the start of the official season against much lesser competition and last Spring the opener faced “The Biggest Loser” instead of “The Voice” on NBC. Also with an additional minute to come into the mix this afternoon, “Dancing’s” numbers often adjust up in the National ratings.

•Gaining viewers from its first half-hour to its final half-hour (14.5 million to 15.5 million) to lead its 2-hour time-slot, “Dancing with the Stars” was Monday’s most-watched TV show, outdrawing NBC’s “The Voice” in head to head competition by 1.7 million viewers (15.0 million vs. 13.3 million).

•Among Adults 18-49, ABC’s “DWTS” (2.5 rating) was higher rated than both telecasts of Fox’s “American Idol” last week (2.4 rating on Wednesday and a 2.2 rating on Thursday).

ABC’s Monday Finale of “Dancing with the Stars” is the Top Entertainment Show And Outdraws NBC’s “The Voice” by its Largest Margin of the Season

Hitting a Season High, ABC is the Most-Watched Net on the Sweep’s Final Tuesday, With the “Dancing” Season Finale Finishing as the Night’s Dominant No. 1 TV Show

The “Dancing with the Stars” Finale Earns 6-Month Highs for ABC in its Time Period

Monday:

“Dancing with the Stars” (8:00-10:01 p.m. – 14.6 million and 2.2/6 in AD18-49):

Building its numbers on night 1 of its 2-night season finale, ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” was Monday’s most-watched entertainment show for the 5th week in a row. Bill Engvall was the next celebrity dancer eliminated from the competition. Growing week to week in Total Viewers (+6%) and Adults 18-49 (+10%), “DWTS” drew its biggest audience since its season premiere and scored a 9-week high with young adults – since 9/16/13 and 9/23/13, respectively.

Tuesday:

ABC finished as the dominant most-watched TV network on the final Tuesday of the November Sweep (+1.2 million over second-place CBS – 13.0 million vs. 11.8 million) and ranked No. 1 in Adults 18-49 (2.5/7-tied w/CBS). ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” finale stood as Tuesday’s most-watched TV show by 20% over runner-up CBS’ “NCIS: LA” (14.8 million vs. 12.3 million from 9:00-10:00 p.m.) and “S.H.I.E.L.D.” was night’s No. 1 scripted series in Adults 18-49.

“Dancing with the Stars” (9:01-11:00 p.m. – 14.8 million and 2.4/7 in AD18-49):

From 9:00-11:00 p.m., the season finale of “Dancing with the Stars” made ABC the No. 1 network in the 2-hour time period with Total Viewers and key Women (W18-49/W25-54), while ranking as the top broadcaster with Kids 2-11. Dominating its final half-hour from 10:30-11:00 p.m., as Amber Riley won the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy, “Dancing” delivered 15.6 million viewers and a 2.6/8 in Adults 18-49 to lead its nearest competition (CBS’ “Person of Interest” = 11.8 million and 2.1/6) by 3.8 million viewers and by 24% in young adults.

Let’s see if Heidi has something to add….

Heidi: Well, the “rank” means very little when it comes to ratings. Throw 15 football games up there and knock it out of the top 10 and that won’t hurt it as long as the same or more people are watching the show, if you know what I mean. The important points to come out of the above are that it is still beating the Voice in total viewer numbers AND it’s still growing week to week. Six percent growth from the semi-finals to the finals is nothing to sneeze at, for sure (take note, Maks fans).  The finale (results show) was down from the all star season…but what do you expect when people get OUT of the habit of watching DWTS on Tuesday night??  Not to mention that the ALL Star Season was a bit of an anomaly.  I think the producers were on crack when they thought that the ratings for that season were down because no one wants to see great dancing. Bull. Your show is aging, and TV viewership is falling across the board. You can’t look at it in a vacuum.  All TV continues to sink in viewer number – except probably cable.  People have more choices now.  Looking at it very simply…this is where the Rank plays a part. How can DWTS STILL be Top 10 show while still falling in ratings season after season?? Simple…because ALL TV is falling season after season. If DWTS were the only show with declining viewer numbers, it would have fallen out of the Top 10 by now.

Heidi Still: And for those who insist that a particular guest judge – be it Julianne OR Maks – has a dramatic impact on ratings…guess again. Here are the total viewers each week:

September 16 – 16.01
September 23 – 13.4
September 30 – 13.1
October 7 – 13
October 14 – 12.99
October 21 – 13.35
October 28 – 13.28
November 4 – 13.72
November 11 – 12.57 (pre-empted in Boston and Charlotte = 3% of the US Market)
November 18 – 13.8
November 25 – 14.2

As you can see, the season starts out very high and then drops consistently until week 5, when it starts inching it’s way back up again. If not for November 11th, it would show fairly consistent growth from a mid season low to the season finale. From what I can see, the only thing having a major impact on ratings was the pre-empting in Boston and Charlotte. Everything else falls on a very nice curve – very similar to curves shown when I graphed previous seasons. It appears that the theory that people want to watch bad dancing may not be true. How else do you explain that people tune in to the first show, then fall out until past the halfway point??

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko . For fun music and dance mixes, visit WilUnleashed Soundcloud.
