PostSubject: Brooke Burke-Charvet out as Co-Host   Fri Feb 21, 2014 9:40 pm

Brooke Burke-Charvet will no longer be by Tom Bergeron's side on Dancing With the Stars.

Burke-Charvet exclusively confirms to me that she will not be returning to the ABC show.

"I have enjoyed seven seasons co-hosting DWTS but understand the need for change considering the position of the show at this juncture," she said in a statement. "I've always been one to embrace change and looking forward to pursuing opportunities I previously wasn't able to entertain because of contractual obligations to the show. I've seen my fair share of shocking eliminations in the ballroom but this one takes the cake."

Meow.

Sources tell me Burke-Charvet had no idea her job was on the line. ABC apparently informed her this afternoon she wouldn't be returning.

"We can confirm that Brooke Burke-Charvet will not be joining us next season," DWTS executive producer Conrad Green said in a statement. "She's been a wonderful part of the Dancing with the Stars family since her triumphant win in season seven and will unquestionably be missed by our entire team. We'd like to thank Brooke for her years of great service."

Burke-Charvet first joined DWTS as a contestant, winning season seven with her partner Derek Hough. Three seasons later, she replaced Samantha Harris as cohost.

This isn't the first major shakeup to rock the upcoming season. ABC most recently announced that its 28-member orchestra of musicians and singers was being replaced Ray Chew and his band.

"We feel that there are some types of music and types of songs, a lot of modern music particularly, is so produced that it's impossible for an 18-piece band to replicate that sound," Green told The Hollywood Reporter of the change. "You get to a point where you're forcing a band to try and do sound that they just literally can't pull off."

DWTS will continue its one-night format when Season 18 kicks off on March 17. The show's two-night tradition was cut in half last season.

Will there be a replacement??

That's sad that they gave her no warning, but a lot of people get the pink slip with no warning. I hate hearing it when it goes down like that.

Sad to hear this...I always liked her too. I thought she did excellent work as co-host. I hadn't heard about the orchestra either.

Good luck to Brooke as she pursues other opportunities.

I never liked Brooke. She kind of bored me. I think with the one night format, Tom can carry that show by himself and they could save some money if their ratings/revenue for ads is down. Tom is very quick quitted and a born natural, so standing next to him is a difficult job, IMO. With that said, if he does get a new host, it needs to be someone young, dynamic, full of personality,sexy, etc. julianne Hough would be great. or Maks too...

I never like Brooke either, something about her just rubs me the wrong way. ABC seems to be cutting back a lot, they went from two nights down to one last season and they got rid of their orchestra and replaced them with a band. Maybe she was making too much money or demanded more money.

Really??!! I guess I see her more as a sports reporter, but you never know.

I like Erin - I thought Brooke was ok, but I was never her biggest fan (although she was better than Samantha, imo). I kind of agree, though, that Tom could probably handle hosting duties by himself. They could keep the couple down with him to do an interview, while revealing scores, instead of the upstairs/downstairs thing they do.

I like Erin but I read they made the switch to boost ratings.  Really?  I can't see Erin helping the ratings.

I agree, Lori - I don't know that she would bring very many additional viewers. I know she is popular in the sports world (she has over two million twitter followers), but that won't necessarily translate to dancing viewership.

I don't have anything against Erin Andrews, I just don't think she is the right person for this job. Do they put any real effort into finding the right person?? And why is it that they go younger for the female co-host, but it's ok that Tom is older? I like Tom, but geesh!

I think she will be better than Brooke. Erin always seems so real and down-to-earth, while Brooke always seemed so damn phony to me.

I LOVE Tom as the host. He has such quick wit, I hope Erin brings some of that.

Have we heard who the cast and pros are yet? Is Maks back?
