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!
