  1. First time I watched DWTS in years.
    The celebrity cast grabbed me.
    Didn’t realise who the hosts were until it started. They did a good job, but think some snide remarks could be dropped. The judging panel gave some constructive feedback to help future dances.
    I really enjoyed the dancing and will be back next week!

    1. Constancy across the states I assume to avoid split scheduling.
      Also would 9 have achieved such a share of it had cricket on main channel, 9Gem wouldn’t have had such a big share.

    2. I think Ch9 decided to opt 60 Mins and PG on the main channel instead of the cricket. I feel that 9 would rather have tentpole reality shows on a Sunday night instead of the cricket. The day before yesterday, cricket was shwon on 9hd.
