Don't know if anyone else watches or cares about this show, but I believe the people running it just signed the show's death warrant.

After hosting the show since its inception, Tom Bergeron has been fired. Erin Andrews, who has co-hosted the past ten seasons, was also fired. No explanation has been given other than the standard `change in creative direction' bs.
Tom is being replaced by....Tyra Banks, who is also going to be given an executive producer credit. Lets see....Tom is a much beloved host, while Tyra is polarizing and was an awful fit on AMERICA'S GOT TALENT. Who in their right mind actually thought replacing Tom with Tyra was actually a good idea?
I've been fed up with the show for a while. But last season and now this news = the final straw. Sharna, my favorite professional dancer, wasn't alllowed to come back and defend her title last season. They replaced her and Artem with a new married couple who didn't seem all that impressive. Sean Spicer was completely horrible as a dancer and lasted a lot longer than he should have, while more talented performers went home. And a Bachelorette contestant actually winning was the kicker.
The reason I put quotation marks around Stars in the title of this thread is because the show often has has-beens on, and Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants aren't exactly stars. I realize they're on to promote that show, but Hannah Brown winning was bullshit.
Nick Cannon recently got in troiuble for some racist comments (against caucasians and Jews) on a podcast that were more shoving his entire lower leg down his throat than just putting his foot in his mouth, and was fired by CBSViacom for what he said. FOX has already announced they have no intention of firing him, but I kind of wish they'd replace him with Tom. He did get a heck of a reaction when he was unmasked as the Taco. Cannon apologized, but I still think he's a racist pos.
