Last season Dancing with the Stars saw a big drop in the ratings. Will they continue to fall or will this round of contestants turn things around? Stay tuned!
Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke return as hosts and Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba and Len Goodman are still the judges. This time around, the contestants are Elizabeth Berkley Lauren, Corbin Bleu, Brant Daugherty, Bill Engvall, Valerie Harper, Keyshawn Johnson, Christina Milian, Bill Nye, Jack Osbourne, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Leah Remini, and Amber Riley.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically Tuesday morning, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
Final season averages: 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 13.73 million total viewers.

Last year comparison: The Monday episodes of the 15th cycle of Dancing with the Stars averaged a 3.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 17.56 million total viewers.
Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
What do you think? Do you still like the Dancing with the Stars TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a 19th season (next fall)?
