DWTS Producer (Tries to) Defends Himself After Letting Tom Bergeron Go From Season 29

Yeah, this dude is full of crap. Get a load of this from ET.

“It’s all about evolution,” he told reporters Wednesday during Day 2 of ABC’s virtual fall press day. “Any show like this that has been on for many, many seasons needs to continue to evolve. So I think changing that host is all about evolution. It was all about making the show feel fresh, making it feel new and make it reach out to a new audience — as well as the audience that’s been there for years.”

While viewers have lamented the absence of Bergeron and Andrews, Llinares believes switching from a two-host format to one has been “working brilliantly.”

“I think it’s really refreshed the pace of the show. It’s taken it to a new place, in terms of moving fast and feeling different. I think that there’s a real danger when a show has been on for a long time that the audience almost gets bored of the rhythm of it. It doesn’t mean that there’s anything wrong with it, just that it gets a little boring,” he said. “I think it’s changed the rhythm of the show in a really exciting way. I think Tyra is doing an amazing, amazing job. It’s been wonderful having her energy in the ballroom and her expertise as a host in the ballroom. She’s brought a new life to everything.”

If he had left it at the first paragraph, I might have believed him. but then he goes on and on. And not just the above…he carries on even after saying “she brought new life to everything”.

He doubled down on parting ways with Bergeron and Andrews, reiterating that it’s about keeping the show “relevant.”

“When a show’s been on for this many seasons, it’s very easy to stay in a place where it doesn’t feel like there’s anything wrong but does the show feel fresh, exciting and new? It’s really tough… We’ve always been successful on all those shows where we continue to evolve and continue to move things on. That’s something we’ve been doing right across the board with this show,” Llinares explained. “The host is part of it, bringing Derek in is part of it, but also throughout the fabric of everything on the show — the set has been updated, it feels more current and the way we’re filming the packages… all of those things take the show into a place where it feels more current. We wanted to make the show feel relevant, but still hold on to the heart of the show.”

There’s this old saying “Me thinks he doth protest too much”….meaning, if you’d shut the fuck up about it we might have believed you. But the constant blathering on makes you sound…guilty. Apologies to Shakespear fans, I know the actual line is: “The lady doth protest too much, methinks”

He also claims he’s been talking to Derek “for months” and the original plan was to have the original three judges plus Derek. Um, can you imagine four judges and 15 couples AND Tyrant?? Yeah, me neither.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

PureDWTS Season 29: Tom Bergeron & Erin Andrews No Longer Hosting

This has to be one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse…the Berge getting CANNED from DWTS????

  Like John (who pointed this out to me, as I’m on a possibly-permanent Twitter vacation), my gut tells me this  was likely budgetary in nature – ad revenue is dwindling and they can no longer afford him.  Although I can’t help but wonder if his vocal dislike of the current administration had something to do with it as well – DWTS viewers skew conservative.

UPDATE: Apparently Erin is out too, per ET:

ABC and BBC Studios released a joint statement to ET confirming the news, and revealed that Andrews, his longtime co-host, will also be leaving the show.

“Tom Bergeron will forever be part of the Dancing with the Stars family. As we embark on a new creative direction, he departs the show with our sincerest thanks and gratitude for his trademark wit and charm that helped make this show a success,” the statement explained. “Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom. Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show.”

As for Erin, it’s likely a money thing and not much else – from what I could tell, viewers had really warmed to her in recent years. I like to think she maybe bowed out on her own accord – she gets so busy during the NFL season, and has been talking about her fertility struggles for a few years after her cancer diagnosis. Maybe she’ll finally get a chance to start the family she wants.

Well I’m not really looking forward to next season…if there even is one 🙁 Thoughts?

Is DWTS Host Tom Bergeron on Season 3 of The Masked Singer???

It looks like the Berge might have an off-season gig – all signs point to him being “the Taco” on this season of The Masked Singer!

The Taco made his debut on last night’s episode, singing a pretty impressive version of “Fly Me To The Moon” by Frank Sinatra:

I hadn’t caught any of the clues and was only half paying attention, but my immediate thought was “Why does this guy sound SO FAMILIAR???” And it hit me like lightening: this was none other than our beloved Berge, who I’ve been listening to for almost 15 years (and blogging about for the last 10) week after week! Then I went back and watched the clues, and was able to reverse-engineer them:

Now let’s unpack some of the clues (which are admittedly pretty corny, but also a bit less obvious than they’ve been in previous seasons):

*says he’s been “a comforting part of your life for decades” (he’s been in the business since 1981)

*pile of VHS tapes (obvious nod to his stint hosting America’s Funniest Home Videos)

*he’s got “plenty of seasoning” (I took this as him referring to the many seasons he’s spent hosting DWTS)

*an anchor (one of his first gigs was as an anchor on a Boston CBS-affiliate station)

*a Rubik’s cube (likely a nod to hosting Hollywood Squares from 1998-2004)

*a trolley (not a nod to San Francisco, as some seemed to think; but a nod to the song he sang on the “Thank You, Mister Rodgers” tribute album)

There were probably some other clues I missed, but it was enough for me to say “Yeah, aside from sounding exactly like my favorite TV host, the clues totally point to Tom Bergeron.” Add to that the fact that both DWTS and TMS share a casting director (Deena Katz), and I think it’s a no-brainer that it’s Berge.

A lot of folks on YouTube & Instagram seem to be claiming it’s Tim Allen, Martin Short, or Bob Saget (who was my second guess, but he sounds totally different singing) – but I think the real OG’s in the DWTS fandom know what’s up 😉 I’m rooting for Tom to win it – I really had no idea that he could actually SING. Check out the aforementioned song he did for the “Thank You, Mister Rodgers” album:

As for the rest of the folks this season – so far, we’ve unmasked two DWTS alums (season 18’s Drew Carey was the Llama, and season 21’s Chaka Khan was Miss Monster) and it’s pretty much a given that the White Tiger is Court’s DWTS Wishlist member Rob Gronkowski. I’m also wondering if the Kitty is season 17 DWTS alum Elizabeth Berkeley, but that remains to be seen…

…so what do you guys think? Are you watching The Masked Singer this season? Do you think the Taco is Bergeron?

Tom Bergeron Doesn’t Think There Will Be A Four Week Season Of DWTS Again

Yesterday, Tom Bergeron answered some questions from fans at his twitter account. In one of them, he tweeted on how he doesn’t think there will ever be a short season of Dancing With The Stars again (thank goodness!!). He also defended the show and why they did it. Read below. For more, see Tom’s twitter account.

PureDWTS Season 26: DWTS Junior Isn’t Happening, Abbreviated 4-Week Spinoff Instead

Just when I was beginning to get suspicious that we hadn’t heard anything definitive about DWTSJ yet, Tom dropped this tweet:

My thoughts? Given that nobody had heard a peep about DWTSJ since the initial announcement (including most of the crew, whose only indicator that things would be different was a memo sent out at the end of last season stating that they would be needed in the fall of 2017 for season 25, and the fall of 2018 for season 26), I’m guessing they just couldn’t pull together a whole new cast of celebs, pros, hosts, and judges quick enough for the spring season – or, somebody actually raised their hand and said “Guys, this idea’s a bit of a turd.” A 4-week, abbreviated season of DWTS sounds good to me – not sure people will bond with the cast quite as much as they do in a regular 10-week season, but I certainly welcome the break, as spring is when things kick up over at Pure World of Dance.

Part of me also wonders if the budget for American Idol has grown to such gargantuan proportions that they’re having to cut corners elsewhere – hence, a shortened, regular season of DWTS, where they can keep the same pros, hosts, and judges and probably mitigate costs better than undertaking a whole new revamp like DWTSJ.

Update: According to Tom, spring season isn’t regular DWTS – it’s a spinoff of sorts.  All I can think of when I think “DWTS Spin-off” was that gadawful Dance Wars show that Bruno & Carrie Ann put on during the writers’ strike back in 2008…

Thoughts?

Tom Bergeron Gives A Sneak Peek Into Dancing With The Stars Season 25 And More

What is host Tom Bergeron looking forward to the most in the new season of Dancing With The Stars? Find out below and more fun goodies. From Parade…..

What are you most looking forward to this season?

It’s going to be sort of a landmark season, the 25th of the show. It’s a big deal. And knowing the production team as well as I do, I know they’ve taken that into account when they’re booking it and building theme weeks and building sort of an arch for the season.

When the cast is assembled and ready to go, do you have an idea of who’s going to win from the start?

No, I’m terrible. Jimmy Kimmel’s much better at predicting it than I am. I’m pretty bad about it. This past season I thought Rashad [Jennings] had a really good shot at winning, but as much as I love David Ross, I wouldn’t have predicted him to come in second. I don’t think he would’ve predicted him to come in second! And I felt a little bad that sometimes my surprise registered on camera. But I just thought David was wonderful and really spoke to what the show is at its best, people who come in, have no dance training, but by sheer force of charm and personality win people over.

What’s been the best part of the show for you?

What I think I’ll always treasure from the experience when the show goes away will have been that camaraderie, that sense of going out onto a live stage in front of millions of people and just knowing that this is going to be fun. That this is an incredible playground that I get to romp around in.

More at Parade. You can also read an interview with Tom at Dish Nation where he says there won’t be any political figures dancing this season.

Also, don’t miss a cool feature on Erin Andrews at Parade as well. Here is a take….

Andrews’ DWTS co-host has plenty to say about their working partnership and what the lead-up to showtime typically looks like.

“We have a production meeting in my dressing room at about 10 a.m. on show day,” says Bergeron. “We’re supposed to be going through the script, but most of the time is spent breaking each other up and being unprofessional. Then the dress rehearsal at 1:30 on show day is even more of a stroll down that particular road, where it’s more R-rated than what you see on the network. Erin’s got a great sense of humor. She’s always unpredictable.”

And, on DWTS, she gets to dress up in ball gowns, which must be a treat after the grass stains and rain slickers of her football gig, right?

“I don’t really like it,” she says, laughing. “I like being on live television. I’m a fan of reality shows, so that’s fun. But I’m not really into dresses and high heels. And wearing Spanx and my hair up with a lot of makeup? I’m better in a flannel, T-shirt and ripped-up jeans.”

One exception: Andrews’ wedding in Montana this past June to 35-year-old former NHL star Jarret Stoll, where she wore two stunning designer gowns—one for the ceremony and one for the reception.

“Our wedding was perfect,” she says. “We just wanted a big party. We had all our friends there, a lot of players my husband hadn’t been with since they [the L.A. Kings] won the Stanley Cup in 2014. We were dancing around and laughing. We loved it so much.”

PureDWTS Season 26 – Who Would You Like to See on DWTS Junior? Court Picks Pros & Celebs

So we’re still over 6 months away from the premiere of Dancing with the Stars Junior next spring, but given that any show with minors seems to take quite a bit more planning, I’m guessing the casting directors are already wheeling & dealing on who they want on the show – after all, they’re not just casting potential celebs, but pros too…and apparently a host, as well, as Tom has said he will not be hosting the spinoff. Alfonso, you still lurking around set? 😉 We need a host, bruh. My gut’s still telling me that Maks will somehow land on the judging panel, and I guess I can only hope that being a father himself with have softened him a bit…I don’t think I could bear a whole season of him being as big a jerk as he was guest judging switch week on DWTS.  And to kids, no less 😯

I had mixed feelings upon hearing about the spinoff – and if I’m being honest, my feelings are still pretty mixed – but at the very least, I think having a brand new set of pros, judges, and celebs (and perhaps a bit of a new format, to accommodate the unique nature of casting kids) might give me a bit of a reprieve from the manipulative grind of the regular DWTS. And the fact that all of the pros are gonna be brand new? Makes it hard for producers to play favorites 🙂 But I do worry about seeing young kids face rejection on national television, especially after seeing young kids cut on World of Dance this summer…I just hope the producers know they have to handle them far more gently than they do the adults on DWTS.

So all that being said – who do I want to see as pros and celebs on the show? Well, given that they haven’t really specified what the age range will be, I am gonna guess that anyone under the age of 18 is probably going to be eligible to be a pro or a celeb partner – similar to the competitive ballroom world, where 18 is more or less the cutoff for dancing in the youth division, and then they make you just start doing adult amateur events. Yes, I’m aware that Willow Shields was only 14 when she did the regular version of the show – but if we cut it off at 14, we actually lose some potentially good pro and celeb choices, and I don’t think the show is going to be able to afford to be THAT picky.  So 18’s my cut-off, and all of my picks won’t turn 18 during the airing of the show, either.  I was also realistic – I doubt we’re gonna see the children/siblings of any huge, A-list celebs on DWTSJ.  So yeah – no Jolie-Pitts and the like on this list.  I listed celebrity children that I think the show actually stands a chance of possibly getting.

I find myself caring more about the pros than the celebrity contestants (although there’s two celebs that I’ve already picked out pro partners for… 😉 ), but I had a good time compiling this list nonetheless.  Let me know what you think 😉 Read more..
