    Wonder if they are being forced out? I can't see how they're going to film a season anytime soon though, so maybe they're just calling it quits?

    The biggest surprise is that this show has been on 15 years. :) It's amazing how long these reality shows run. Survivor has been on at least 20 years, right?

    Yep, Survivor started in 2000. Same for Big Brother.

    I feel it pretty clearly is non-voluntary. I saw on tvguide.com that ABC commented that the show was going in a new direction. And Tom's own quote is that he was informed that DWTC was continuing on without him, not that he informed them.

    Probably cost-cutting to get someone cheaper. I doubt, for example, that they have Derrick and Julianne lined up as replacements because they're probably too expensive too.

    Good luck with that. Tyra was terrible as the host of AGT.

    I know what Scott Adams would say about this.

    I loved this show and started many a thread when casts were announced. I haven't watched in at least 2 seasons. It got stale for me. But Tyra?! Ugh

    Based on his tweet of "Just informed @DancingABC will be continuing without me", it sounds like this is being done TO him, not BY him...

    That's a shame.

    Hope they fix the voting some more.

    I think they've been trying to kill the show for some time (they've skipped the Spring cycle for a couple of years now) but havn't been able to because of backlash from core fans. I think they finally found a way to kill it.

    I thought the voting has been "fixed" since the beginning! :p

    I can live with that decision, but I'll miss Tom. Tyra was not good as a host on AGT. So not really understanding their logic with that move.
