Dancing with the Stars will move to Disney+ this fall, becoming the first live streaming reality show. Is this a brilliant move or just ABC dumping a dying show?
A cable reality TV star won Dancing with the Stars 30, making history for that and other reasons. But when the season was being cast, producers dismissed the eventual winner’s chances.
JoJo Siwa’s performance on Dancing with the Stars season 30’s Horror Night sent me on a quest to find the song, a haunting and jazzy remix of Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes.”
JoJo Siwa will dance with a female partner on Dancing with the Stars 30, which is groundbreaking for this dusty old ABC show, but way behind everything else.
During a press conference, Dancing with the Stars’ showrunner revealed that Derek Hough was going to be the new fourth judge alongside Len Goodman, but the producer wouldn’t even say Tom Bergeron’s name when I asked why Tom was actually fired.
ABC promised that Dancing with the Stars 29 would get a “creative refresh” and “fresh take.” But it’s the same show as it always has been—just now with Tyra Banks and terrible fake audience noises.
Dancing with the Stars 29’s cast is more of the same—and by that, I mean that it’s generating headlines for casting people like Carole Baskin, Kaitlyn Bristowe, Vernon Davis, Johnny Weir, Monica Aldama, and Nelly.
