How Has ‘Dancing With Myself’ Performed in the Ratings So Far?
New series Dancing With Myself has been on the air for several weeks now, airing after America’s Got Talent on NBC. You might be wondering how many viewers are tuning in each week to watch the show’s dancers do their thing.
How Are the Ratings for Dancing With Myself?
The Dancing With Myself series premiere was its strongest showing so far, with 2.659 million viewers and a 0.42 demo rating (for the key demographic of ages 18-49). Since then, the numbers have continued to hover around the 2 million mark.
This week’s new episode had the lowest showing in total viewers, with 1.957 million viewers. It also had the second-lowest demo rating so far at 0.30. Could the lowered ratings be because the show’s lead-in, America’s Got Talent, aired a clip show rather than a new round of auditions?
Speaking of AGT, Season 17 has unsurprisingly brought in more total viewers than Dancing With Myself each week. Its season premiere brought in 6.328 viewers and a 0.76 demo. This Tuesday’s episode (which recapped Simon Cowell’s favorite Golden Buzzers) was the lowest so far, with 5.23 million total viewers.
Still, NBC is dominating the ratings on Tuesday nights this summer. AGT and Dancing With Myself were first and second in total viewers this week.
How Does the Show Work?
Dancing With Myself is a new kind of talent show, inspired by dance trends on social media platforms such as TikTok. Each week, the show’s celebrity panelists (Shakira, Nick Jonas, and Liza Koshy) teach the contestants a dance routine, which they must then recreate with their own flair.
The twist is that the dancers are isolated in their own pods while they learn and perform the dances, which makes for a unique set-up. The other great thing about the show is that most of the contestants are amateurs, and people of all ages can compete.
Will Dancing With Myself‘s ratings be good enough for NBC to renew it for another season? Only time will tell. Until then, catch the show on Tuesday nights at 10/9c.
