Ratings: ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars” Declines This Week

ABC’s competition series endures a week-to-week loss but still ranks as Monday’s most-watched show.


Monday’s edition of “Dancing With The Stars” suffered week-to-week declines in adults 18-49 and overall viewership.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, the episode drew a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 10.05 million overall viewers in the 8PM hour. It grew to a 1.7 and 10.60 million at 9PM.

Last week’s episode averaged a 1.8 and 11.18 million viewers from 8-10PM.

Despite the loss, “Dancing” remained Monday’s #1 broadcast network show in overall viewership. It trailed “The Voice” as the #2 network show in adults 18-49.

— “DWTS” led into “Quantico,” which drew a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating and 2.92 million viewers. Those numbers best the 0.5 rating and 2.27 million viewer mark posted by “Quantico” in last week’s finals, but it is worth noting that the series tends to adjust down (once the “DWTS” bleed is removed from the data).
