‘DWTS': Major Change Coming To Season 17
But the dancers aren’t the only thing new about Dancing with the Stars this season. The show is also switching to a one-night, two-hour format — the show previously aired for three hours over a span of two nights — which producers believe will only make the show more exciting.
The new season of Dancing with the Stars officially premieres Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
HollywoodLifers, which star/pro pair will YOU be rooting for this fall? And what do you think about the new one-night format? Drop a comment with your dancers of choice below!
