The 24th season of Dancing with the Stars averaged a 1.64 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.48 million viewers. Compared to season 22 (Spring 2016), that’s down by 7% and down by 11%, respectively. Find out how Dancing with the Stars stacks up against other ABC TV shows.
As with other long-running TV series, Dancing with the Stars believes it can avoid my talons forever. But eventually, even the mighty fall. That said, I suspect this series is safe for at least another couple of cycles. Still, I will keep an eye on the ratings and update this page from time to time.
