Dancing With the Stars' Tom Bergeron Out as Host After 15 Years
Erin Andrews is also out.
I'm out, too.
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.
‘Dancing With The Stars’: Tyra Banks To Host As ABC Refreshes Format – Deadline
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!
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.
