    Re: Brooke Burke - Co-host

    The idea that the co-host needs to be a woman and a "beautiful" woman at that is somewhat outdated and insulting to the viewers who just want someone that can speak well, provide quick comebacks and think on their feet, all while entertaining us and keeping the show on-track... easy, right?? We don't require much! Personally I'd love to see Carson snag the role, his quick wit, charm and energy are fabulous!

    Re: Brooke Burke - Co-host

    Just reading through all the possible choices to replace Brooke, and I'm wondering, would anyone with actual intelligence, wit and charisma be willing to play second banana? Personally, if I had all three of those things going for me (I don't), I would want to be the head banana. That leaves an assortment of good looking dullards to fill the position.

    Re: Brooke Burke - Co-host

    I would guess that they are trying to project a more traditional air of glamour and elegance that is associated with ballroom dancing. It's harder to project that is you have 2 male co-hosts. A female co-host can parade around in gowns and lots of bling. You can debate the correctness of this, but it's a TV show based on an old-fashioned art form, and they are concerned about drawing in a wide variety of viewers more than anything else.

    I am quite certain, though, that if they put a little effort into it they could find a woman who was good-looking, elegant AND was a full-wit.

    Well, any impressions on the new and improved Brooke? I thought her questions were better--- leading me to believe that she was GIVEN a question to ask for each person based on something in his/her background. Otherwise, she was still stiff. Do love the gowns they give her. Each week, I look at her attire and then am done with her.

    I am curious as to who in power finds her so fascinating that she is back yet again.

    Still not a fan. I'd rather see Carson be the co-host!

    I thought she seemed looser or something. She laughed a lot, I just dont think she is co-host material. I wasn't that keen on the girl before her either .Cat Deeley has spoilt me.
