In three weeks I dance with the stars“The latest season, the creative team of the show is facing its controversial change in the host.
During a virtual press event with reporters on Wednesday, executive producer Andrew Linares commented on the decision to replace Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews with Tyra Banks, calling the move a necessary “evolution” for the show.
“Any show that has been going on for many, many seasons must continue to develop,” Linares said. “It was about making the show feel fresh, feeling new, maybe reaching a new audience,”
Although Llinares did not offer further explanation for Bergeron and Andrews’ layoffs – although he was asked if Bergeron was released due to criticism of Sean Spicer’s casting last season – he praised the “brilliant” format of using only one host instead of two.
“I think it really refreshed the pace of the show,” the EP continued. “There is a real danger that when the show has been going on for a long time, the audience will almost get bored of its rhythm. This changed the rhythm of the show in a really exciting way [to have Banks hosting solo]. Tyra does an amazing, amazing job. “
