After three days of cross-platform viewing, the episode grew to a 0.97 rating among adults 18-49 (up from a 0.63 in live+same-day).
That marks the highest-rated multiplatform telecast for Dancing With The Stars since Season 32 premiered in September.
Disney100 Night also tallied 6.24M viewers across the three-day viewing window. That’s up from 4.7M who tuned in on ABC that night. Dancing With The Stars is also simulcast on Disney+, though those live numbers aren’t available on a weekly basis.
As mentioned above, this isn’t quite as good as the ratings for the Season 32 premiere, which managed 6.50 million viewers and a 1.08 rating after three days of multi-platform viewing.
ABC said the premiere held even with the series’ prior season on ABC in fall 2021, when it averaged 6.50 million viewers. The competition show moved to Disney+ exclusively for Season 31 where viewership numbers were never released.
