DWTS Finale Attracts 5.5 Million Viewers
According to The Wrap, the Season 32 finale of DWTS had 5.5 million viewers on Tuesday night. That was a 15 percent increase in viewership compared to the season premiere. The finale had a 0.67 rating in the key demographic of adults aged 18 to 49.
The finale was also the highest-rated TV program of the night, ahead of The Voice on NBC with a 0.39 rating. However, The Voice won for total viewers, with 5.65 million. Still, the three-hour DWTS broadcast made ABC the most-watched and highest-rated network of the night.

Xochitl Gomez Was Named the Mirrorball Champion
During Tuesday’s Season 32 finale, Marvel star Xochitl Gomez was named the winner of the Len Goodman Mirrorball trophy, alongside her partner Val Chmerkovskiy. This is Chmerkovskiy’s third win as a pro, having previously won the Mirrorball with Rumer Willis and Laurie Hernandez.
After the show, Xochitl told Good Morning America that winning felt “crazy,” adding, “Usually, after the show, I watch the show. And I haven’t had that moment yet. So I can’t really tell how real it is.”
The actress admitted that she didn’t think she would make it so far in the competition. When Chmerkovskiy joked that it was “disrespectful” to him for her to say that, Xochitl responded, “It wasn’t on you. It was me, bruh. I knew you’d get me to Week 5 at least.”
