Where Are Erin Andrews & Tom Bergeron on 'DWTS'? They've Been Replaced

If you’re tuning in for the season 29 premiere of Dancing With the Stars tonight, get ready for a lot of changes.

The show’s longtime hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews will not be there as they have been replaced by Tyra Banks for the new season.

News of Tom and Erin‘s exit was revealed back in mid-July and they were blindsided by the news. She previously spoke out about how it was a “surprise” to find out that she wasn’t returning to the show.

Erin explained her emotions in a new interview that was just released ahead of the DWTS premiere.

“I didn’t have much time to deal with it. I got a phone call — we were on the putting green with my dog and my husband — and I got a call that said, ‘You know, so-and-so from ABC wants to talk to you,’ and I was like, ‘Oh, s–t,’ like, this is it,” Erin said on the Token CEO podcast. “I felt sorry for myself, and I kind of was like, ‘This is a terrible time to lose my job,’ because we don’t know when live television is coming back. These are hard jobs to get. I was like, ‘Oh no, I’m a loser, this is really bad,’ and then you just start talking to other people from other networks and people that have production groups and they’re like, ‘You’re gonna find something.’ … Yeah, it was a super big bummer.”

Check out all 15 contestants who will be competing on the show tonight.
