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… Read more »

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

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… Read more »

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.

suOOO 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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

Anne Heche in “Extremely Critical Condition”; Still in Coma Following Fiery Car Crash

Although earlier reports over the weekend had soap opera alum and Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World) in stable condition following crashing her car into a home, on Monday an update on her condition looked more grim.

According to a statement provided to Deadline by Heche’s rep: “At this time Anne is in extreme critical condition. She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”

Since last Friday, Heche has been hospitalized following a harrowing incident where she crashed her car which caught fire into a private home in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles.

In addition, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Annie Hernandez told City News Service that investigators obtained a warrant for a blood draw from Heche.

Over the last few days, a new episode of Heche’s podcast “Better Together” with her co-host Heather Duffy was released, which showed the actress slurring her speech.

Erroneous reports said that the podcast which dropped on Friday, was also recorded that day, and that Heche had been drinking prior to her accident during the show.  However, it has come to light that Heche taped that episode last Tuesday, not the day of the crash.

Share your thoughts and prayers for Anne as we continue to monitor and update the situation on the film and TV star, via the comment section below.

According to Los Angeles Fire Department Capt Erik Scott: “We had a significant traffic collision, we had entrapment of a woman inside that, we had car that erupted into fire, and then we had a home that had significant fire that is red tagged. It’s at this point destroyed.”

Heche is currently in a Los Angeles hospital, and had to be intubated following being severely burned.

Soaps fans know that Anne won a Daytime Emmy for her dual roles on Another World and played Vicky and Marley Hudson from 1987-2001.  She has also appeared in the films, Donnie Brasco, Six Days Seven Nights, Wag the Dog. and more.  On television, Heche has appeared in the last few years on: Dancing with the Stars, Quantico and Chicago P.D.

We will continue to monitor this developing story.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
