I urge EVERYONE to boycott this show! Ray Lewis was involved in a murder cover up while he played in the NFL. THEY turned their backs on this thugs action. I’m disappointed that ABC green lighted this casting choice. DONT WATCH!

Amen, Timmm! I quit this show years ago, but it’s pretty rich that an athlete with such a dubious criminal background has been welcomed with open arms by ABC, whilst a military veteran and generally decent guy like Sean Spicer has been openly ridiculed by no less than DWTS’s own host, which was extremely rude, unnecessary and most of all, unprofessional! Even though I didn’t think Spicer was up to the task in the Trump Administration and deserved to be replaced, that’s no reason to vilify him as “disgraced.” He took his dismissal like a man, left the position without acrimony and continues to support our president, unlike that self-serving clown, Scaramucci, who is an absolute embarrassment with all of his vindictive antics.

Seems you can beat, rape and murder and as long as you are not connected to President Trump, its okay, come on the show and lets all be happy! Bullshi!

Exactly, Timmm! I’m surprised Weinstein, BillyBoy or William Kennedy Smith weren’t invited to be on the show! I know, how about Jeff Epstein? Oops…too late for the last one! What a pity, it would have been verrrry interesting to see what his “requirements” in a female partner would have entailed.

Never watched this show the first time I won’t be critical of what makes people tick but after 28 seasons maybe time to fold the tents and I find it disgusting that we are all worked up about a press whatever but have no problem with a nfl player that yes was involved in a cover up! What’s next OJ we are reaching to the depths of no return! As always I will leave the sorting out of society and mans mess to God he has it covered that’s his job not mine

The NFL has more thugs in it than the NHL, MLB and NBA combined!

Don’t be waiting for my Former Employer to sort it out!

After what the Orange Imbecile said this week, claiming to be “The Chosen One” and “The Second Coming”, if anybody on your side of the Earth’s crust was due a good old fashioned Biblical smiting from on High, it would be Trump.

But apparently my old Boss is on vacation. Worse yet is that people are starting rumors that Donny Tinyhands could be my son, the Antichrist! Well, I’ve seen his mother down here, and believe me, no amount of alcohol could have enabled me to have carnal relations with that! So the mortals can’t blame me for what this fool does.

There’s a few families in Atlanta that definitely won’t be watching because of Lewis’ involvement in a 2000 murder scene.

As usual, very little stars, and as always, propping of some washed up right wing hack.

I take exception to your comment of “being grandma’s show” I have watched it over the years, but not for many now. Why the hell is everyone arguing over a stupid dance show and a host who has the right to voice his opinion. From where I sit, only a few of us agree with each other, and the rest keep our mouths shut for fear of losing acceptance. I am not politically inclined, but as with the soaps, I know who I like and who I wouldn’t let in my front door. I guess I have become jaded and disappointed over the years as to whom the majority puts in the white house. I do vote, but then I snap my fingers and click my heels and hope for the best.

There are some real head scratchers on this list. I thought DWTS was supposed to be adding several A-list level celebs to the fall season. I agree that Sean Spicer should not be included. The non-stop coverage of the revolving door of this President’s administration has received enough coverage. Can’t we watch a harmless dance show without politics being involved in it. I am not thrilled with Lamar Odom, unless he is doing the rounds to try reinvent himself from a sex addict and distancing himself from the Kardashians. Ally Brooke will most likely win because she has dance experience in being Fifth Harmony. I hope the show does not put all of the drama with Lauren Alaina’s personal life every week and the audience has to watch her have a breakdown. I am ready for the show to return.

If they thought skipping a year would help people forget the obvious fixed results of the year before they are mistaken. My only hope is they have developed a new voting strategy- and Sean, my man, where’s your pride? Are you so desperate to reclaim your 15 minutes of fame that you would humiliate yourself on this show. Basically that is the only reason they want him, and one would think he had a enough humiliation working for Trump’s White House

OK…you know what: On this upcoming season of DWTS, the only ones that interest and intrigue me are Christie Brinkley, James Van Der Beek and Kate Flannery. As for the rest of them…nope.

Later.

47th Annual Daytime Emmy Ceremonies Canceled Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

There won’t be any “And the Enmy goes to _” come this June, where NATAS had originally scheduled three nights of award presentations honoring the best in daytime programming at the 47th Annual Daytime Emmys.   The three-day event was slated for June 12-14th, at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena. California.  Deadline broke the story of the decision to postpone daytime’s biggest night, for now.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
