dwts200.jpgLOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (X17online) - TV ratings are showing that audiences may prefer dancing over singing. For the past two weeks, ABC's Dancing With The Stars has scored higher ratings than FOX's American Idol.

DWTS reportedly drew a larger average of viewers (23.6 million) the past two weeks than the Tuesday total for “Idol” (23 million), according to the Los Angeles Times.

But Idol has been able to beat DWTS in the ratings among adults 18 to 49, which is a coveted demo group. Many are speculating that this season's sexy DWTS cast has drawn more viewers. Kate Gosselin and Pamela Anderson are creating plenty of buzz around ABC's show, now in its 10th season.

Critics believe it's still too early in the DWTS season to predict whether or not the show will maintain such strong ratings.
