Now that The Bachelor is over, people need their fix of reality TV and it looks like Dancing With the Stars season 12 has filled the void! More than 22 million fans tuned in to see the next crop of celebrities take the dance floor!
Looks like the Karate Kid (Ralph Macchio) the Girl Next Door (Kendra Wilkinson) have a serious fan base! Oh, and Kirstie Alley of course has everyone buzzing!
According to early ratings results, via Entertainment Weekly, DWTS Season 12 premiere averaged a 5.1 rating/15 share in adults 18-49, down 20 percent from last spring’s start on March 22.
But despite the drop in the 18-49 demo, the ABC reality dance competition still helped ABC win the night in viewers and took charge of most demos, including persons 2-11 and persons 12-34.
Looks like the kids are really into DWTS this season. Maybe because of young star Chelsea Kane who starred opposite the Jonas Brothers in the Disney hit That’s So Jonas? She did kiss Joe Jonas on the show!
Ralph, Kirstie and Pittsburgh Steeler Hines Ward rounded at the top three with Ralph scoring a high of 24 out of 30 — very impressive for night one!
