New format for DWTS?
Jul 19 2009, 1:31 PM EDT | Post edited: Jul 19 2009, 1:31 PM EDT
E! Online is reporting that Dancing With The Stars might have 16 (!) celebrities next season instead of the usual 13, and they'll eliminate two couples each week for the first several weeks. Seems like it might be a little too chaotic, and harder to get to know the stars during the season. What do you think? 1  out of 1 found this valuable. Do you?

I think it is great that the show is that popular, but I think that 16 contestants and no extra time is a bad idea. It sometimes takes the celebrities a few weeks before they get comfortable and show what they really can do, but if you are eliminating two couples a week you would never know how good someone might become. Do you find this valuable?

The Executive producer has said that 16, yes 16 conestants will be on the show, and halfway through the season, double-elimination's will occur. Do you find this valuable?

It's too bad that they aren't planning on doing the double eliminations earlier on in the show.... so the not-so-good dancers could be eliminated, and we could get to enjoy the better dancers longer.

At the end of the season when they have everyone come back, I always look back at the first two or three couples eliminated and think, "Oh yeah, they were on the show!" Seems like that will be even more the case now with 16 couples. Do you find this valuable?
