    The ratings are always low though- they manage their Monday spot, with just okay ratings. Otherwise it would be gone, although that could happen sooner than later with this silliness

    True.

    TOO true.

    Okay so wait we also have to pick if we want to stay with our star or the pro?

    If I have to chose I am going with the pros. I think most of the pros have bigger fan bases than the stars; some of whom I have never heard of.

    I do not like this new twist at all. If the wanted to change things up then they should have also gotten rid of the 3 stooges when they showed the band & Brooke the door. I am not shedding a tear over Brooke's removal although I don't think they needed Erin who is one of my least favorite ESPN whatever she is. I would have preferred Tom to fly solo.

    I'm going to happily relinquish my Wooden Leg Award this season!

    Team Name:
    Gold Medal Dancer

    Superstar Couple: Meryl & Maks
    Couple 1: Charlie White & Sharna
    Couple 2: Danica & Val
    Couple 3: Cody & Peeta (I think they are partnered together)
    Reserve: Amy & Derek

    I think that during the switch (which I'm not a fan of, btw) we should keep our stars, rather than our partners...
    Looking forward to a great season!

    Can't pick my teams until after the first show and I have no idea what I'm going to do about the twist, but my team name will be....

    Their ratings are down because it's old, but one of the biggest turn-offs is the producer manipulation. This twist is exactly that, manipulation. Keep doing that and it will have an audience of 1000 by next season, if there is one.

    Can I not claim it in the name of Ginger Rogers, who was the first to say it if I'm not mistaken. I didn't want to make the name really long by adding, "In an evening gown," to the beginning.
