Poor Brooke! And they fired the musical director and his live band too?! What's going on? Seems like they really want to shake things up so I wouldn't be surprised if some long time pros like Cheryl don't get asked back.
I thought the ratings went up when they changed to the one day a week format?
I thought so too but I also agree they need to work on getting better 'celebs', but it can't be easy to get people to sign up for this, the really successful celebs are probably too busy too fool with it.
I think Erin will do a great job, she doesn't have to have someone with a mic in her ear telling her what to ask the celebs/pros and she's good at conversation on the fly. As a former contestant she has a good insight to what everyone is going through and the professional experience behind her to carry on a conversation without the awkward silences Brooke was prone to have.
I couldn't stand Brooke- something about her just annoyed me. I never found her interesting or funny.
I used to love watching DWTS, but I feel like as it gained in popularity, it kind of deviated from the original intentions of the show. They would cast celebs that had previous dance experience (Zendaya comes to mind), so what's exciting about seeing someone succeed when they already have had professional training in the past?
