‘Dancing with the Stars’ ratings have been on the decline for the past few seasons so producers have decided to shake things up with a hot new co-host! Sexy former contestant Erin Andrews is so excited to be taking Brooke Burke-Charvet’s place — but she knows she has ‘big shoes’ to fill!
After seven seasons, DWTS has decided to change its co-host. Brooke Burke-Charvet has been replaced by none other than former contestant Erin Andrews, who is looking forward to being on the show in a totally different role! We hope she can put DWTS back on top after its recent downfall.

Erin said in an interview with People that she knows she it won’t be easy to fill former co-host Brooke’s shoes. “I don’t blame the audience at all — how could you?” she says. “I know that I have huge shoes to fill. I’m a fan of Brooke. She was very wonderful towards me in my season. She was so caring and was so fantastic. I can only hope I can emulate somebody like that and use her for guidance.”

Brooke Burke-Charvet Will Not Return To ‘DWTS’
ABC revealed in a statement that Brooke would no longer be co-hosting DWTS. “We can confirm that Brooke Burke-Charvet will not be joining us next season,” Conrad Green, the show’s executive producer said. “She’s been a wonderful part of the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ family since her triumphant win in season seven and will unquestionably be missed by our entire team. We’d like to thank Brooke for her years of great service.”
Brooke admitted she was a little shocked by the decision, but she proved that she has a good sense of humor about it by joking about her exit on Twitter:
Here’s the skinny – The show found out Harold Wheeler, the band, Rob & me were putting together our own road show, so they fired us all! 😜😉

Season 18 of DWTS is set to premiere on March 17 and it’s already off to an exciting start. The cast is unknown but we will find that out as well on March 4 when it’s announced on Good Morning America.
Whether or not Erin lives up to what Brooke did on the show remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure: We’re all rooting for you, Erin!
So what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited to see Erin on Season 18 of DWTS? Let us know!
