Show Summary

Dancing with the Stars is a unique series that pairs up celebrities with professional ballroom dance partners in an intense competition -- live -- in front of a studio audience and the nation. Each season has a select number of celebrity/professional dance pairs. The pairs are then judged by a panel of expert judges (Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman) as well as by the viewers at home. One team will be eliminated each week.

The couples must maintain their focus, grace and composure while learning precise movements and maneuvering in extravagant costumes. Will they remain compatible during the course of the competition?

Dancing with the Stars has broad appeal, offering viewers dazzling costumes, dancing, celebrity gossip, behind-the-scenes training and contemporary music performed by a live 15-piece band. The format has already been an international hit in several countries.

Dancing with the Stars is the U.S. installment of the international smash hit series, Strictly Come Dancing.

  • Oh My! :00

    I truly enjoyed Alfonso Ribeiro's Time Warp group dance far better (and more entertaining) than the Itsy Bitsy Spider group. DWTS most have some type of contract that prevents Derek H. from losing group dance challenges. So sad!!! He needs to be a better sport about it.
  • Len is constipated and Julianne needs to go away

    Sooo frustrated with the judges. Julianne thinks everyone should be like her. The Halloween theme was supposed to be for entertainment purposes and the judges kept saying, "It just took away from the They didn't like Mark and Sadie's performance? It was awesome. I think Mark wants to punch them in the face. They are way too critical and expect perfection, which takes the fun out of the show. Len needs an enema and Julianne is annoying. Mark and Derek are the best. It was a super fun show. It was supposed to be a little different from the norm. Ugh. Show was great. Judges suck. I like Bruno.moreless
  • Very disappointing show now!

    After watching this season I have to say this:

    1. girls are way underdressed- feels like cheap Vegas show, making girls to dance in swim wear and with no skirts nor shirts for guys, and making them to take things off- seems very desperate way to raise ratings among perverts! Move the show to midnight with those type of costumes!

    2. Get rid of Julianne- she is a bad judge, not Fair towards anybody, except her brother and Mark - her little buddies. She has the buyest views and she should not be allowed to judge family members. Way too critical to other pros and no need for the fourth judge, since they don't always get a chance to talk, due to time limit, so why crowd the time with fourth judge?

    3. Bring Lenn back- he is great and always fair, he has his opinion and keeps ballroom standards alive!

    4. Show is playing favorites with pros- it is soooo obvious! No one is there dare to tell truth to Derek and Mark- they always get higher scores, notwithstanding their partners stumble (Derek's tango),make technical mistakes or have awful lines ( Sadie's feet are apart, during the stretch to side- the train can get through) get off time, dance very short routines (Derek's tango today), or dance completely jerky rumba with terrible lines (Mark and Sadie). i am a professional ballroom teacher and champion and can't stand when things are overlooked and 10th and 9th are given for such an embarrassing performances. And fair to say, look at Derek's face- he was shocked himself, when he got those high scores tonight, because he new the routine was not ready and he knew it. Mark and Derek are great dancers, but be fair with them, don't pull them through if it's not deserving!

    5. Lea Remini did a great job today with hosting the show.

  • Keep Leah !

    It was a relief to not listen to Erin's nasal, hard edged was great, lively, funny, and thoroughly enjoyable. Why do younger women talk like they have something lodged in their throat? Some speak so nasal ala Kardashian, or like Erin, it's nasal and sounds like she's talking while being strangled. Someone give these on air hosts and reporters voice lessons !!!
  • Guest Host

    Well I have to say . . . They have finally done something to improve this show.

    Now just KEEP this week's guest host. She's just a hoot & really brings a new vibrancy to show.

    The regular co-host is so dull & just does NOT have the upbeat FUN that we are experiencing tonite.

    KEEP HER !!!!!

    And . . . We also agree that Julianne needs to totally lighten up.moreless
