‘Dancing With the Stars’ debuted a lot of changes on the season 29 premiere, Monday night, and fans were not very pleased with some of them. Tyra Banks replaced longtime hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews. While Banks appeared to do a good job, the vast majority of reactions on social media were negative.
Fans also complained about the fake audience noises that were added to the live telecast. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, there was no audience in attendance to provide the usual noise and energy.
While fans complained about some of the changes, the reaction to new judge Derek Hugh was fairly positive. Hough is filling in for head judge Len Goodman. Goodman will make appearances via video from his home in London.
