Tom Bergeron & Erin Andrews Were Fired From 'DWTS' for This Reason

We now know the reason why Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews were fired from Dancing with the Stars.

“I think it’s all about evolution. I think any show like this that has been on many, many seasons needs to continue to evolve,” executive producer Andrew Llinares told reporters (via Us Weekly). “I think changing the host was all about evolution, it was about making the show feel fresh, making it feel new [and] kind of make it reach out — maybe to a new audience as well, as well as the audience that’s been there for years.”

He then spoke about the choice to have Tyra Banks take over and only have it be one person taking on the responsibilities instead of two.

“I think it’s working brilliantly with the one host. I think it’s really refreshed the pace of the show, actually,” he added. “I think it’s taken it to a new pace, in terms of moving faster and just feeling different. I think there’s a real danger when a show’s been on for a long time that the audience almost gets bored of the rhythm. It doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with it. It just sort of gets a little boring — the rhythm of it. So, I think it’s changed the rhythm of the show in a really exciting way.”

Erin recently revealed the way she was fired by the show…
