You Should Have Kept Kate On ‘DWTS… Ratings Are Down Since Her Departure!

Now that Kate Gosselin is no longer hot-footing it on Dancing With the Stars, the show’s ratings have marginally decreased. See, America? Gosselin sells!

We said told America would regret kicking Kate Gosselin off Dancing With the Stars, and we were right! Just one week after her April 19 departure, the hit ABC show’s ratings were down by .7 million viewers April 26!

Despite Kate’s crappy dancing, we were all pulling for her. The 35-year-old said she was dancing so her brood of eight would be proud — how can you not love that? Regardless, mama Gosselin (as well as partner Tony Dovolani ) was given the boot on April 20, and with her departure came a decrease in ratings. Last Monday, numbers were at 20.0 million viewers, while this week 19.3 million tuned in.

The proof is in the numbers, people! America loves Kate Gosselin! If you’re not a fan, you better become one FAST, as she’s got two shows premiering later this year (Twist of Kate debuts this summer, while Kate Plus 8 hits TLC in November).

In summary: Kate is great for numbers!
