    I'd be surprised if Louis becomes much of a regular again. I feel like they'll go to him only if they need him, and with the addition of Tristan and Val, plus the troupe, plus the more popular pros that aren't going anywhere if the show can help it, I think Louis's not exactly in demand. I enjoyed him during his seasons with Kelly, Lisa Rinna, and Monique Coleman especially. I got bored of his comedy schtick with Niecy, and I think he didn't do Margaret any favors going that route right off the bat. If Louis were to come back, I doubt it would be with a serious contender to win. Unless he got lucky and the celeb turned into the female version of Gilles or J.R. I'd rather Louis back than Derek or Mark. I realized that last season marked the first time in the shows history none of the original pros who were on season one were on the show. I still wouldn't mind seeing a shake up in the pro line up. It seems they're willing to change everything else but what needs to be changed (adding new blood, the judges, Brooke, the singers, the horrible song choices). Even the partnerships have gotten predictable.

    I like him. He did very well with Kelly I would take him over Maks or Tristan any day.

    And there we differ dramatically--I'd rather they get Louis back and give Derek and Mark a season off at the same time.

    I just read an article dated January 2012 in which Louis said the show had him under contract for five years, beginning in 2011. If they aren't using him this season either (he said he actually appreciated having a season off), I wonder if that means they've had to buy out his contract or he still owes them some years in the future.

    The contracts are all in the show's favor. The dancer has to be available for any season they might be called in for, during the term of the contract, but the show is not obligated to use them (or pay them.)

    What??? I know you don't like Maks and you have stated that many, many times. But what is wrong with Tristan? How can you not love his "Lucky Charms" accent? LOL

    As for Louis, he's alright. I've only liked him with a couple of his celebs, Kelly being one of them. I saw him a few weeks ago on The Talk promoting a DVD exercise/dance video.

    This surprised me from Wikipedia:

    He moved to New York City in 1991 and after he stopped competing, at age 26, and began coaching dancers such as Tony Dovolani, Karina Smirnoff, and Maksim Chmerkovskiy

    I had no idea that he coached them. Impressive.

    Tristan's my favorite but I'm ok with everybody except Tony or Louis. And I don't dislike them - I just think they're boring and I'm tired of Tony, after all these seasons. Maybe I'd be ready to see him again if he took a season or two off. Louis I just don't get. To me, he isn't handsome and he's sort of fussy or something - and I haven't found his choreography for celebs to be memorable. I liked Kelly ok but I think I would have liked her with anybody - it was her, not him, that I took to. Same with Lisa Rinna. I understand sort of why Maks is popular but I've never been a fan - sometimes I think he's too mean to his celebs and that makes me angry. But like I said, I know he has a lot of fans, so ok, that's important to the show so I can take it - but Louis and Corky? And even Tony. I wish they'd just go away.
