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.

I’m coming to a close tonight. This is going to be my last dance,” Ballas told the audience.

  3. Lita says

    I stopped watching DWTS when they replaced to Tom ith TB. I watched the beginning of the first program and turned it off immediately. I loved DWTS, but she was horrible! Why do. Tv programs mess up a good thing!

  4. darlene Wei says

    Yep, she said it. If this is coming from the insiders, then you know what the viewers are saying is true. There is a lot of money on the line for this show and it still has the potential to succeed. They have to lose Tyra (she is leaving, yay) and get back on regular network tv. If they can’t get Tom B back then get someone like him and not another show-off, narcissistic, This is my Show person.
