Hi …I would keep the judges, if you change judges you wouldn’t have a show. I would also like to see the public’s vote to count more as we are sitting home judging.Have more people on that are funny and willing to learn how to dance and learn the steps that are taught by the dancers and just have fun. Don’t need the people that know how to dance already and have been on a few times, give other people a chance. I love the show it makes people feel young again..

Watching Derek Hough is like watching a mixture of Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly . Derek has an amazing imagination when it comes to creating great dances.

first thing should be that the men keep their shrts on or at least a T shirt. it is a family show, must they show their upper bodies to compete? the show is simply stale.keep the pros and bring in absolute normal non dancing peeps.pep up the scoreing method, so out of date.if the shirts come off next year it wont be viewed in our home, never again. the dance routene is also stale, to much ball room.

Without Maksim in the show is quite different, he is an interesting guy, good personality that is for the show. Oh please we do not expect a very amateur dancer who could not bend and twist and have both stiffed knees,,waste of time watching. Someone like Katherine Jenkins will be wow ! Judges? I do not mind seeing the 3 stoogies, nah ! no Paula Abdul – no no no no !

Having “bad” dancers is a bad idea. The pitiful, bad dancers are the only routines that inspire me to leave the tv show, waiting for a good dancer. I agree that the Results Show is too long, too drawn out. I wish there were a bit more education with the dances, pointing out the turns and movements contained in specific dances…..akin to what the commentators bring to professional ice skaters, and they sometimes slow motion to illustrate a specific jump, etc. I do not picture a whole show of that, it would be too tedious. But some specific education, perhaps by the pros, that would allow us viewers a more educated and objective judgement of the dances….more that just the overall impression of how smooth a dance looked. Though I appreciate what these judges bring, they have become predictable. I have like it when they added guest judges, to change the chemistry on that panel….so perhaps more of that. I also have appreciated efforts to emphasize the judges decisions and to de-emphasize the popular viewer vote. And the bottom line is, most viewers want to see celebrities known to them, not more obscure stars.

if I had any say in what happened to make the show better, I would say let the judges scores count more toward the people staying then the people at home counting. in life everything is about the popular vote when it should be about what you can do and not who you are our who you know. no doubt viewership dropped on the Allstars because Sabrina BrTony was robbed again

I agree, the public should not be allowed to vote. Then it is a popularity contest and not a dancing contest. So, let the judges alone, decide who the trophy winner should be.

i disagree with not bringing the older generation on to the ball room floor. however, it has been unfair to them in past seasons to compete against the youngsters. Why can we not have DWTS Senior Division as the second season? Seems to me, you might get more of the greats with them knowing they will be competing with their peers. The seniors thus far have been great and bring an abundance of talent and fun to the dance floor.

I love dancing, but use only amateurs. Not too old. I love to see the different dances from all nationalities.

Do not bring back former dancers. We saw them once, that’s enough. No more old foggies either. Like Gus, or Jerry Springer, or Cloris Leachman. Come on, if they are old enough for depends they are too old foe DWTS.

i agree – no politicians – no more all stars – and not tooooo old celebrities – we love to see a celebrity who can dance gracefully – no gymnastics please – leave that with Shawn and Derek, we’d seen enough ! Good dancing and educated celebrities – this will compensate our time watching the show. Cheers ! Let us wait and see !

I agree–no more politicians or their equally untalented family members please. The show is otherwise perfect, as far as I’m concerned. I don’t know who is spinning the “people like to watch people who can’t dance” theory, but it’s absurd. The All-Star show was the best. I tune out when the dancer has no talent. I head for the bathroom to brush my teeth during the Bristol Palins and the Kate Gosselins. If they start featuring more contestants with left feet, I’ll change the channel for good.

I miss Lacy competing on the show! Having Julianne Hough back would be fabulous! You must keep the same judges! The results show could be timed to 30 minutes, I just want the results!
I love the show, can’t wait for it to start, just hope they get a mixture of people!
Keep up the great work!

no more professional politicians or their family. it ruins things when the viewer vote is skewed by zealots.
no more all-star seasons. we want new ‘talent’.

I agree new talent is more fun to watch as they progress each week. If you can’t get famous people , why not get people off the street?

Keep the same judges! Perhaps bring back professional, Julianne Hough. Many of the troupe are rather good, promote some to professional status, if necessary. I’d get rid of Derek Hough (did appreciate his refusing to follow the dance rules on Season 15). Have celebrities who actually WANT to dance, not those 1) on for entertainment, 2) for their own come-back or 3) for their 15 minutes of fame. I lost interest in Season 15 because of Derek and Shawn. I wanted to see dancing, not gymnastics. (Being they did not come in first, others must have felt the same way.) So happy Lindsey Lohan has declined to be on the show, hope the person who put out that invite only made that one mistake! The show is DANCING with the Stars, not Gymnastics with the Stars or Dancing with the Has-Beens!

I think they should have new pros from the troupe like Oksana, Emma Slater, Sasha. It will be great!

changing the judges will just ruin the whole show. season 15 most of the stars already knew how to dance so that made it kinda boring. they should change it back to how it was before. plus if the have julianne hough back then the show then that would just be perfect!!!

Have DWTS only 1 night per week and give the results then. That 2nd night is so much repeat and time fill. Also you could have fewer couples and they could do 2 dances.
