It’s no surpirse that Dancing With The Stars decided to greenlight their most successful series, Dancing With The Stars Ireland! Congratulations to everyone involved! 🙂
The season finale, on Sunday night, was watched by 576,000 people, with a massive 48% share. Then had a huge 734,000 (peak) when Jake Carter was announed the winner and lifted the glitter ball, with his partner, Karen. The series has also been a big hit on the RTÉ Player, with 332,000 streams to date!

The latest JNLR figures are in, and they show a big increase in ratings on RTÉ 2fm, including a 5,000 growth on The Nicky Byrne Show, giving them a total of 144,000 daily listeners! Congratulations to Nicky, Jenny and the whole team! Couldn’t think of a more deserving bunch. 🙂
JNLR day is here and the numbers are in: The Nicky Byrne Show has gained 8,000 more listeners, giving them a total of 139,000 – Congratulations!
Dan Healy, head of RTÉ 2FM, said he was delighted with the performance of his channel as “a challenger brand.” He said it was over two years since a conscious move was made to go after a younger audience. The new policy meant 2FM lost its older listeners and figures were declining but now it has enjoyed back-to-back listenership growth.
Picture thanks to Jenny Greene.
He was delighted that Nicky’s show enjoyed significant audience growth and he attributed it to talent and hard work. “He’s a guy who probably doesn’t have to work, I assume, but he comes in with a massive work ethic,” he said. He praised Nicky’s fellow broadcaster on the show Jenny Greene and how both worked so well together since she joined him. “She didn’t like Westlife, she didn’t fancy him, so you’ve got a really interesting kind of chemistry there,” he quipped.

It’s more good news for RTÉ One… Actually, make that GREAT news! The audience of their new hit show Dancing With The Stars keeps growing, making last night’s episode the most successful yet – 646,100 viewers tuned in to watch the very first elimination, with a reach of over 1.2 million throughout the two-hour episode. This brings the network’s highest ratings in over a year!
I could not be happier for everyone involved. Dancing With The Stars is a pleasure to watch and you can tell how much work is put into it every week. Here’s to more celebrations in the future.
