Monday’s two-hour live broadcast of Dancing With the Stars went great, right up to the last few minutes when it didn’t. Production issues caused some last-minute chaos and fans were quick to throw new host Tyra Banks under the bus.
Monday’s mishap consisted of too many couples being up for elimination, and then confusion as to which couples were even vulnerable to elimination, with Banks having to call one couple back to the stage. Banks appeared to struggle with ad libbing through the moment, and fans were quick to call her out on social media.
#DWTS29 #DWTS Hey @DancingABC how long before you apologize to Tom and Erin. Bring them back and I'll watch the show again, instead of just reading tweets about what a train wreck it has become. pic.twitter.com/uGAJxtLuIe— Roy Klementsen (@Roybq) October 6, 2020

Banks blamed both the “control room” and her cue cards for the snafu. She also apologized repeatedly for the mishap, citing “live tv” as an excuse. Ultimately, she was able to get the situation figured out and eliminate the proper couple.
Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
