Dancing With The Stars: Cheryl Burke Says Heart Of Show Gone After Tyra Replaced Tom Bergeron
Dancing With The Stars spoilers, news, and updates tease that Cheryl Burke has something to say about Tom Bergeron’s exit from the show. She said that the heart of DWTS was gone after Tyra Banks replaced To and his co-host Erin Andrews in season 29.
The actress had nothing bad to say about Banks, but she admitted that something was missing after Bergeron was replaced. The latter was a friend to Burke and an inspiration not only to her but to many of the fans, cast, and crew.
“This is no dig at Tyra … but honestly the heart of the show was gone,” she said when asked about what’s different with the show. “I can’t even say it better than that…” she said during an interview with Chris Harrison on The Most Dramatic Podcast Ever.

It’s not just about Bergeron hosting the show. What Burke misses the most is the fact that he did a lot of things behind the scenes. He hosted mid-season parties for the cast and crew. He interacted with everybody, even on Sundays during camera blocking, even though he wasn’t getting paid for it.
She believes that replacing Bergeron was like recasting Friends, which was not possible because the show will never be the same again.
During the conversation, Harrison also pointed out that Bergeron didn’t make the show about him when he was hosting it.
“It’s not about you, you are not the star, and that’s something that’s lost by a lot of hosts. Obviously, the ratings changed — you can see the numbers changed dramatically after he and Erin left…” he explained.
