Though excitement built throughout the two-hour show, it wasn’t enough to get the audience too excited. It drew 15 million and a 2.6, which was up significantly week-over-week, but was down 16 and 21 percent from last year’s Mirror Ball crowning, according to TVLine.
These low ratings could also be due in part to the season being a bit predictable. As mentioned above, we’ve known for a while that Kellie and Derek or Zendaya and Val would win, and each week, we guessed the eliminated pair correctly. Hopefully next season will be more exciting — and in turn, get higher ratings!
