Believe it or not, the season 11 premiere of Dancing With the Stars had the best ratings EVER in the show’s history – all thanks to its teenage viewers!
Regardless of what you think of this season’s crop of Dancing With the Stars’, it totally kicked butt as ABC’s most-watched Monday season premiere in 11 years!
The hot bods of Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and The Hills alum Audrina Patridge, as well as the ‘morals’ of teen activist Bristol Palin helped to make the Sept. 20 show the best fall opener among 12-17 years olds EVER!
In fact, the show’s numbers increased by 18% over last season’s premiere – meaning that MTV has way more clout with viewers than Kate Gosselin and her TLC crowd had. Wowza!
Although teens love ‘em, viewers are less than enthusiastic about both The Situation and Bristol’s dancing chops. Who do you think will be the first to go home tonight on the show’s first elimination?
