THIS … is America’s favorite reality show! Sorry, Ryan Seacrest. Your girlfriend, Julianne Hough, wins this round of American Idol vs. Dancing With the Stars.
Last night, ABC showed a 20/20 special with Barbara Walters called Best in TV: The Greatest TV Shows of Our Time. Fans cast a million votes in several TV categories for a survey sponsored by ABC and People magazine. Dancing With the Stars ended up winning the reality TV category.
Here's the top five from the reality group:
5. Deadliest Catch
4. The Amazing Race
2. American Idol
1. Dancing With the Stars
It looks like you can’t beat DWTS’s combination of great entertainment, great sex appeal, and great physical transformation. As Barbara Walters noted on the show, "Dancing at least five days a week, six hours a day, they burn off 7,500 calories every week." Whew!
Granted, an ABC poll may automatically attract an audience that favors an ABC show like DWTS, but still. Awesome job, voters! Check out other category winners here.
Dancing With the Stars Season 15: All-Stars will premiere on Monday, September 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Check out the full All-Stars cast list here.
