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
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.
Dancing with the Stars season 29 now has a premiere date and a list of pro dancers, and a promise from ABC that it will be “a fresh take” that still has “the heart and soul of the beloved series.” But didn’t they fire Tom Bergeron?
Tyra Banks will host and be an executive producer on Dancing with the Stars 29, bringing “a fresh take,” according to ABC. She previously hosted America’s Got Talent.
Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews have been fired from DWTS ahead of season 29. ABC says Dancing with the Stars will “embark on a new creative direction.”
