Dancing with the Stars
The cast of Dancing with the Stars season 16 was revealed today! This is a really good cast and I have a lot of favorites in here! This shall be a good season.
The new season premieres Monday, March 18th at 8pm on ABC.
Here is the new cast and their partners:
Former American Idol contestant Kellie Pickler and Fierce Five Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman are joining the new season of Dancing with the Stars, reports TMZ. Sean Lowe of this season’s Bachelor and Wynonna Judd have also been cast.
The rest of the cast will be revealed on Tuesday.
Ann Romney will not be on Dancing with the Stars this season, reports TMZ.
The former presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s wife appeared on the show last season in the audience because she was a huge fan. After deliberations to be on the show however, she decided against it.
Dancing with the Stars hit a bit of a downward spiral with its most recent All-Stars season, but why?
ABC is looking to Joss Whedon’s upcoming Marvel series, S.H.I.E.L.D. for future success in the ratings. There is an update on the project inside! Also, much was said about the mega-hit Modern Family and fledgling series Nashville.
What does ABC President Paul Lee have to say about DWTS and his network’s overall ratings drop?
The Voice had a 4.5 adult rating on Monday and 12.32 million viewers, making it the #1 show of the night in ratings and viewers. Dancing with the Stars All-Stars had a 2.0 rating, down 20% from last week.
This is great news for NBC. Just a few months ago, DWTS spoiled The Voice‘s coming out party by dragging the ratings down just when The Voice was consistently topping American Idol for the week.
The rest of the numbers:
The X Factor was beaten by the lowest Fall finale ever of Dancing with the Stars. Sigh. DWTS had a 4.1 rating down 25% from last year. The X Factor was down 18% from last week’s performance episode at 3.2.
I think we’re going to see horrible numbers tonight as well. On a bright note: Considering how difficult scheduling is in the Fall (baseball and the holidays) — The X Factor is keeping it’s 9-10 million viewers captivated week after week.
