Another said, “sorry not sorry will not be watching this season because you have Carol Baskin on this season.” Another said, “The lunacy that is 2020 continues. Carol Baskin?” Lastly one fan said they’ll never watch the show now. They posted, “You killed the show with Carol Baskin!! Such a waste of space… This would’ve been my first time ever watching a season of Dancing With The Stars.”

Some Fans Are Thrilled To See The Line Up

While the change-up of Dancing with the Stars hosts upset some fans, the lineup is enough to intrigue them to stick around, “I swore I wouldn’t watch this season because of the exit of Tom and Erin however Monica Aldama more than makes up for it!”

This year one thing that is not changing, according to GMA, is the judges. Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli will all be back. It will be hard to top last season with a stellar performance from James VanDerBeek, a win from Hannah Brown, and many more thrills. Dancing with the Stars will return to ABC on September 14th and will air on Mondays.
