Dancing with the Stars: Spring 2014 Ratings

dancing with the stars ratingsIn the fall, ABC cut Dancing with the Stars to just one broadcast a week. The ratings for that cycle were the show’s lowest in its 17 seasons on the air. Though the show is highly unlikely to be cancelled, this trend is not positive. Will the ratings continue to fall? Stay tuned.

Tom Bergeron is joined by Erin Andrews as a co-host with Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba and Len Goodman returning as judges. This time around, the contestants are Sean Avery, Candace Cameron Bure, Drew Carey, Meryl Davis, NeNe Leakes, James Maslow, Danica McKellar, Diana Nyad, Amy Purdy, Cody Simpson, Charlie White, and Billy Dee Williams.

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.

    This season is horrible . The only star is Alfonso and he is the only reason I watch the show this year. The stars you have on this year ate not stars. And the are horrible dancers. If the show don’t start getting better stars you will lose my vote

    They made a big mistake with the new cohost. She is horrible. Brooke had personality looks she had a soft flowing voice She and tom complimented each other . You ne’er see tom and the new person together. Because she overpowers him next year bring Brooke back

    I have always watched and enjoyed dancing with the stars, however this season with the new co-host STINKS..she has a terrible voice I don’t even want to listen to her and therefore I have only watched an entire show once, during which I muted her onscreen time. Bring Brooke back and I’m sure the ratings will go up. This co-host was the worse decision EVER!

    WOW, I certainly hope they renew the show. I love the regular judges, all the pro dancers, and the host. They renew the Bachelor and the Bachelorette and that show has a lot of drama. My vote for DWTS is yes, yes, yes to renew for next season!!!
