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.

Tom has set a powerful stage, and I’m excited to continue the legacy and put on my executive producer and hosting hats.”

Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment shared: “Tom has been an integral part of the ABC family for nearly two decades, from hosting AFV to Dancing with the Stars – we are grateful for all he and Erin have done to make Dancing a success.  As we gear up for the show’s 29th season, we can’t wait to welcome Tyra Banks to our Dancing stage. Tyra is an award-winning multi-hyphenate whose fierce female prowess and influence across many industries have made an indelible mark. Her fresh take on America’s favorite dancing competition will surely bring more than a ‘Smize’ to fans everywhere.”
