    DWTS will definitely sink lower if they don’t do something about who keeps getting voted off! Bill needs to go; or DWTS will get voted off the TV!

    Last night DWTS proved it was a waste of time for the Stars to compete. The Star voted off had just received 3 tens from panel. It was ludicrous at best. Even Bill with the lowest score appeared to be embarrassed. The public call ins are ridiculous. They appear to vote based upon their favorites, and not upon the ability of the contestants. Clearly, the decisions should be in the hands of the experts on the panel. Even they appeared shocked at the results, and lastly even my husband was upset.
