You might say Hines Ward’s Dancing With the Stars victory went over well in Pittsburgh.
The finale did a Super Bowl-esque 39 rating/54 share last night.
Hearst TV’s WTAE held a viewing party last night at the Stage AE Amphitheater, and Ward’s win was the leading story on the ABC affiliate’s news last night.
Party attendees saw it as a bonus that a Steeler might hoist a trophy well after football season has wrapped.
“I loved his message that he sent back to Pittsburgh. I thought it was genuine and he appreciates our votes,” Baldwin, PA’s Sandy Roundtree told WTAE.
