I also think the voting has been unfair as I consider this a “dancing” contest, not “popularity”. So here is what I am going to do: Since I enjoy this show, and IF Bill wins this contest, I am going to consider the REAL winner to be the second runner-up. Regardless of who gets to take the Ball home. This keeps me happy, because the really good dancers are very entertaining.

I am so disappointed in this show! It has become a popularity contest, not a dancing competition! I thought it was supposed to be about dancing. I will not be watching anymore if this isn’t addressed for next year. Why don’t the judges have more control …they are the qualified ones?

The show tells you to vote for your favourite, not vote for the best dancer based on the scores the judges provided.
Lets face it, the height of Berkley’s career was in the 1990′s. The rest of the remaining celebrities are much closer to the height of their careers, and therefore fan bases. Personally, I’m glad to see her leave. She might have been a great dancer, but she wasn’t as fun to watch as any of the others.
I’ve been watching the Canadian show “Battle of the blades” (figure skaters and hockey players team up and perform figure skating routines). Their judges/fan voting system would be a MUCH better format. All teams perform, all get judges scores. Fans vote. The next week at the beginning of the show they announce who the bottom two are. Then the teams all perform with the bottom two going last – which ever of the bottom two has the lowest judges score THAT night goes home. Basically it’s a skate off every week to see which of the bottom two leaves – fans pick the bottom two, judges pick who stays.

Everyone is talking about view’s votes. How about judges scores???
Judges votes are so rigged. Jack is getting 10′s for quite good but not brilliant walts while Corbin is getting 9′s for amazing walts. Amber gets 8′s for impressive quickstep (withour any clear mistake) while Bill is getting 7′s and his performance is so much worse than Amber’s (if she is got 8′s that he should get 6s). Leah is getting 9′s for nice but dull tango and 10s for trio dance??? It feels like school favoritizm or worse the show has been paid for certain people to get higher marks

She should NOT have gone home, that was just ridiculous and idiotic on the voters part. Really? They send Elizabeth home who has been on top for a long time and keep Bill and Emma, who have been on the bottom pretty much the whole season? Screw this, I’m sick of the DWTS voting system, Elizabeth and Val were my favorite and even the judges were shocked. I’m getting sick of how people vote just because they feel sorry for Bill.

When I heard that Bill said he deserves to be in the semi-finals because he has worked hard, I knew I needed to comment. Bill, no one denies that you are working hard, and you are very entertaining. But you are a terrible dancer and you should have stepped aside and let Elizabeth stay. I am not sure I can watch the rest of the season. I think DWTS is bringing Max back as its way of enticing viewers to continue watching. The show knows how outraged the fans are. This year’s voting system needs to go “bye bye” and set up a system that works! What a shame this season has gone downhill.

HELLO! The biased judges may bow down to Berkley, but the public know she’s your typical Hollywood self absorbed phony, and really no acting talent! Whereas Leah & Bill are popular with the fans because they are down to earth & real! {And quite talented}!

What a disappointment!!!! I always watched and voted and now I don’t feel like its worth the time anymore!!! Bill is funny and everything but enough is enough. If the show is really about improvement- he hasn’t improved at all and his only good dance was the Paso Doble. After that, he’s been getting worse and worse. There should be something like a “wild card” in DWTS where they can “save” or bring back a good couple like Elizabeth and Val, regardless of viewers vote. I truly don’t believe that Bill can have a higher fan base than the fans of Saved by the Bell… As for myself, I’m not voting anymore because it’s useless. I would go on the advance week after week solely on judges scored. They’re really the experts- not the viewers.

Voting on DWTS HAS TO CHANGE SO THE DANCING TAKES PRECEDENCE OVER POPULARITY. I WILL NOT WATCH THE SHOW AGAIN.

You took the words right out of my mouth. What a joke this show has become. I was saying the same thing, thank God for Corbin and Amber or there would be NOOO show but the Mickey mouse dancers left. People are complaining the good dancers had dancing experience, but people want to see competition of the BEST dancers, not a popularity contest. You might as well do away with the judges since peoples votes count for more then the judges. It should be the other way around. Who’s next, Corbin next week so we can see stiff Bill.

I Have been a fan of DWS for a few years, but last night was my last time watching it. This show has become a joke. There is no authenticity to it. Bill should have been gone a few weeks ago. What is the objective of the show if contestants that cannot dance remain on the show while talent is eliminated. DWS should initiate another scoring method that is fair and authentic. Anyway, I will not waste my time watching another episode this season nor any other season in the future.

I also feel Len is bias against blacks.

For one thing, Bill did try to withdraw when Snooki was voted off, but the producers wouldn’t let him. No, he’s not the best dancer, but evidently somebody is voting for him. You can’t blame DWTS or even Bill himself. Even Derek said he wouldn’t be surprised if he won, because he has resonated with the audience. Do I think he should win, NO. But you’ve got to understand this really isn’t a true dance competition. Its an entertainment reality show, and you’ve got to admit Bill is entertaining. If they don’t have a double elimination next week, then there will be 4 couples in the finals as last year. Does he have a chance being one of the 4? He only has to make it through next week and he’s there. Does the best dancer win the mirrorball every year? No, but usually the finals have 2 of the best. We’ll see how it pans out this year. But in the end, we’ve all just got to relax and enjoy the show for what it is. I think the celebs that are dancing are. :-)

DWTS was a must watch program until last night, the elimination of Elizabeth was such a shock to all in my household. How accurate is the scoring when a extremely talented dancer be eliminated when lesser contestants remain.

Unbelievable! I like Bill as a COMIC, but a dancer? Pulllleeeese! He’s one of the worst ever, let’s be honest. Sadly, I have lost some respect for him, because he should have been a sportsman and just withdrawn, rather than let a FAR superior dancer go home! NO rythm, NO timing, and he is in the semi-finals!? Wahte a JOKE, it’s a total farce. We are now disgusted with DWTS,
as it is no way a dancing competition, but more a popularity contest. Another case in point: Bristol Palin! Week after week the judges kissed her behind, and she was no great dancer, not at all. They seriously need to re-evaluate their elimination process, it simply is grossly unfair. YUK.

As a “Peace Loving Libra”, I am seldom so Angry as to Write to the Media.
I sent the following to Huffington Post’s AOL Blog:

DWTS JUDGING IS 100% BOGUS!!!!! We like you as a Comedian, But, Bye BILL!!

SAVE ELIZABETH Berkley from “Saved by The BELL”. She is THE “BELL” of the Ball !!!!
- – - – -
I WANTED TO SAY:
I really like his Comedy & I’m proud that he is representing we Baby Boomer, old “Dancing Dudes” so Well….
HOWEVER, BILL SHOULD FORFEIT TO PROVE THAT TO BE A REDNECK IS NOT TO BE LESS Than a Gentleman, Nor A Thief. All one had to do was look at the Faces of All 4 Dancers (on the Split-Screen) when they announced who was Leaving. Every Single One Was Surprised & Loyal Fans are Outraged!!
WHOMEVER SET UP THE CRITERIA IS AN A–HOLE!!!

SAVE ELIZABETH Berkley FROM “Saved by The BELL” or DWTS Credibility will GO TO –LL!!
The AOL Software wouldn’t take my comment & I even Tried to Numb it down. LOL

Bill should of goon home last week and I think what happen last night was just terrible and I think when there is someone that is as bad as Bill they should go or he should have left volunteered and went home. If he stays next week I will not watch that show any more. Shame on ABC for not protecting the good dancers in some way.

Bill Engvall is getting creepy because he keeps commenting on whether he should or should not have an affair with Emma…like he would have to give 50% of his worth and his wife is sitting right there while he and Emma fawn and slobber all over each other…yuck. He really was gross last night.

Bill should’ve went home before Christina Milian and Snooki.
Bill and Leah are the worst dancers still standing but the people behind them are obviously voting for them. A lot!
They’re not terrible dancers, just not as good as the rest.
Obviously it’s about popularity and not how good you dance. If it were those two would be gone by now.

If they keep Bill next week, there will be no reason to watch this show. Both Bill and Leah need to go. I’m not a fan of Jack either, daddy in the audience is keeping him there.

I would sign the petition to get Bill sent home. He is an absolutely horrible dancer and I do not find him entertaining. If he wins the mirror ball I’m not watching DWTS ever again. Get him off the show! And worse yet, now he is in the finals. This is not right!!!

yes i agreed too!. she should have stayed in the top 2 finals, i think the only reason why she got voted off because whoever works and behind does the voting on DWTS like bill a lot on the set instead of his dancing!. the guy and chirstina and skooni and elizbeth all got rigged because of bill!. he is the worse one dancer in the out of all the casts so far… this doesnt make any sense, it seem all fishy to me, just saying…

whenever, whenever the judges generously rate the celebrity a perfect 10 – that is a danger zone. it happens all the time. we should have learned the gimmick of these judges. yes public vote counts but they are contributors too. Bill should have been sent home since or Leah – Bill is used as a joker – Amber and Corbin are obviously be either one of them a winner – Jack will be third – he is kept as a favourite. As it says – everyone must go ! but it is done unfairly. Between Leah and Elizabeth – Elizabeth is better ! Noticeably, Val is not quite happy this season 17. Alright, this is DWTS !

Elizabeth started out as an a-one dancer, which was not fair the other no experience dancers… that is why she was voted off.
