All TV shows are for entertainment, that is what TV is all about! Even the news producers make sure their show entertains. Documentary makers too. Weather men often consider themselves comedians and aim to please.Peacheater- It never occurred to me that DTWS "is nothing more than a mirror ball." I guess those continuing payments made to cast members who stay around really don't mean much as long as the Disney elves are delivering the entertainment. I'm afraid that the only common ground we share here is that "it's not that serious."
Everyone involved in making a TV show is paid. Why would anyone work for nothing? It is a job for all involved.
I understand why you take dancing seriously, it is your field, but this show is pure fluff.
