The ABC ballroom competition was also down from last year’s spring finale, averaging a 2.4 rating with adults 18-49, but it was only off by three-tenths of a point. The show took in 14.9 million viewers.
American Idol aired its performance finale to an average 1.7 rating in the key demo. With an especially heavy amount of reality competition on the night, it suffered a 43 percent drop from the penultimate episode last season.
