If this show is going to continue to be more popularity than dancing ability, then change the name of the show to reflect this!! The name of the show "Dancing With the Stars" suggests that dancing is the skill needed to compete in this competition. If this show is really just a popularity competition, then change the name to "Popularity of the Stars". The competitors enter this contest expecting to be fairly judged on the dancing ability by both the judges and the viewers!!! This has not been happening! Popularity is ruling. It's time to get back to the basics. Let's Dance!! If not, you'll lose viewers!!!!!
My wife and I have been viewers of this show since it began. This season it has become obvious that the voting has been skewed so that the unwed mom from Alaska has been kept on the show even though she has the poorest dancing ability. The show never reveals what the actual vote counts are. Is it possible that since she is the daughter of the former governor of Alaska and current darling of the political right, she will be kept on the show until the very end? In the meantime a lot better dancers have been let go. I have reached the point that I consider this situation being corrupt. Therefore, I will no longer be a fan and viewer of what was once an excellent entertaining show.
I have watched Dancing With The Stars since the first show. When I go to vote I never get all the votes that I am supposed to get. If I am supposed to get 5, I get 4. There is something wrong with the counting. Also I cannot believe the unwed mom from Alaska can still be on the show. She is one of the worst dancers that I have ever seen. I will not be watching the show from now on, for one thing keep the politicians off the show. You have lost a good viewer. Also I have talked to others that has watched the show and they are on longer watching it either.
Every time I see someone with amazing abilities get booted off that show it makes me depressed and as a result I stop watching. They finally had a season that brought one of the people that was unfairly kicked off back on, Sabrina Bryan. After a Hurricane blows through and she gets a perfect 30 from the judges she is voted off the show for a second time in the sixth week (same week as the first time she was kicked off.) Just goes to show the show is a popularity contest but worst part is that not everyone got a chance to vote due to a state of emergency.. And I am going back to not watching the show for a final time.
Palin and Alley are the two worst dancers on the show and other better dancers are being eliminated. The voting is a joke. I have watched the show since season one. But I can't stand it any more. I will not watch the show again. The judging should be done by the judges only, not what we are told the viewing audience voted.
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS -- I am writing this in absolute disgust of your show. This is not a show for dancing ability but rather a popularity contest. We saw it 2 seasons ago with Sarah Palin, last season with Kirstie Alley and this season with Chaz Bono who very obviously can't dance and is continuing to stay on a show that is SUPPOSED to be about dancing ability. I am done watching your show and ABC should take notice and this show should be thrown off of the air. You are a grave disappointment.
This is no longer a dancing show as one of the finalists cannot dance. You have lost many viewers, me included, by not conducting a fair voting system. This is a favorite's (Howe)/political (Palin) show and should be kicked off the air.
A previous viewer. No longer a viewer.
Trying to vote has become impossible. The lines are constantly busy. Therefore, you can't get through. The wounded soldier, Bristol Palin should have been gone three weeks ago. For a young girl she is awful. Something smells in Alaska and it's not fish. There need to be another way and the judges need more clout.
