Series information and format

A hit US dance competition program, Dancing with the Stars has been on the air since 2005. The veteran show airs on ABC, and is an adaptation of the British TV show Strictly Come Dancing. Tom Bergeron is the host of the show, and his current co-host is Erin Andrews, who has joined the program starting with season 18. The last completed 22nd season has aired between March 21 and May 24, 2016. The show is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions and executive produced by Ashley Edens-Shaffer, Rob Wade and Joe Sunkur.

The show pairs up professional dancers and celebrities who perform ballroom routines competing for a Mirrorball Trophy. The challenges in the last season included Famous Dances night, Disney night, Latin night, and other thematic tasks, where both learned and unlearned dances were performed. The latest champions, Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd, were crowned on May 24, 2016. Notably, DiMarco is the first winner on Dancing with the Stars who is deaf. The judge panel this season includes Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba and Julianne Hough.

Ratings and expected renewal

The series is an absolute hit, with the last completed season ranking as #8 among all programs of the 205-2016 television season, with a 13,443 million per episode average in Live+Same Day, and a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic. The series has already been renewed through season 23, and if the show follows the same broadcast pattern, we are likely to see the next installment in fall 2016. Stay tuned for a premiere date, cast details and any other changes that might be in place.

Julianne Hough - a wonderful dancer BUT as a judge, she talks too long leaving very little time for Bruno or whomever is next to speak. Plse. let her know there is a time limit...her comments are not always relevant to the dance just performed, whereas the other judges get right to the point (except when Cary Anne gets carried away).

I do agree with the comment about not choosing stats that have dancing experience or professional status. It makes the playing field very unfair , no matter who they are. I would like however to see( if not done alreasy) baseball, hockey, soccer, tennis, wrestler and boxing professionals compete. It would also be nice to have a category called "Stars for Season", which would consist of everyday people that are randomly chosen from a lotto! We want to get in on the fun too. You could choose categories to select these people from , such as ...teachers (like me) , sanitation workers, entrepreneurs, (store and shop owners from the public or any other everyday folk who have their own business), postal workers , Transit operators etc. This category of course would only be comprised of 1 to 2 persons max..

I, too, agree with having a category consisting of everyday people randomly picked to compete. I would absolutely love to be to selected.However, it would be great to see ordinary people work their way up. Would make it even more interesting that most folks could relate to.
