  • So glad Shark Tank got renewed! My husband and I love that show! Tons of great (and some not so great) ideas on there!

  • DWTS’s ratings have plummeted. They need to revamp that show. It takes up too much air time that the current ratings do not support. They could introduce new shows during those three hours of broadcast. Shows that could potentially do better.

    • RATINGS HAVE GONE DOWN BECAUSE IT HAS HAD TO FACE COMPETITION FROM THE VOICE AND DANCING HAS HELD UP STILL PULLING IN 17-18 MILLION VIEWERS, WHILE THE VOICE HAS FALLEN TO SERIES LOWS. THERE’S NO REASON BOTH OF THESE SHOWS NEED TO GO HEAD TO HEAD.

  • I still enjoy Dancing With The Stars but they need to replace the judges. Enough said.

    • Could not agree more! The judging panel really needs to go.

      • Yeah, I agree. It’s the judges that are too over the top (really Bruno???) I can’t stomach any of them so I choose to stay away from the show! That and too many hours a week. When it’s down to 4 couples, do we really need two hours a week??? Come on!
