- I don't think that a 10% drop against a special sporting event that drew 13.67 million viewers and a 4.5 (18-49) is bad at all. DWTS will not draw those numbers when it begins it's season.
- I'm very much looking forward to the Battle Rounds because they are all about coaching. What advice each coach will give, and how the performers apply that knowledge is interesting to me. Also, it really adds 8 new celebrities to the show.
- I have never heard of ANY of the contestants this season. The fact that one released 3 albums that nobody bought, or another was on the WARP TOUR in 2008, has no effect on me.
It's pretty obvious that you have a bias against this show, because almost everything you post is negative.
