In analyzing the ratings for ABC’s made-for-TV “Dirty Dancing” remake, it makes sense to draw a comparison to FOX’s fall 2016 “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” broadcast.
Such a comparison is mixed.
On the one hand, ABC’s movie drew fewer adults 18-49.
According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, “Dirty Dancing” averaged a 1.3 in the demo.
“Rocky Horror” posted a 1.7 in that key young adult demographic.
The older-skewing “Dirty Dancing” did, however, draw a larger overall audience. It averaged 6.59 million total viewers, while “Rocky Horror” attracted 4.95 million.
