Dancing With the Stars - Why do We Like It

Aug 6, 2008
Dancing with the Stars is a television program that is viewed by millions of viewers a season. There is much speculation as to why the show started off so popular and has not lost any of its following. There is no way to determine for certain why people like the show and continue to watch it season after season.

Dancing with the Stars is about to begin its 7th season in the fall of 2008. Since the very first season back in the summer of 2005, the world loved this show. For some reason people can not seem to get enough and anxiously wait for each new season to begin.

Each season starts with the introduction of the teams of professional dancer and their teammate celebrities. Then as the season progresses, the public gets to see a rare glimpse of their favorite stars or athlete's learning the complicated steps and moves required for the complicated dances they perform. Some say that Dancing with the Stars has such a large loyal following because people love to see famous people make mistakes and there has not been one season yet where the bloops and blunders of the workouts have not been shown.

There are also others that say they like to watch Dancing with the Stars for the simple fact that you can learn to dance yourself if you pay close attention. If you do not know how to dance and watch enough dancers performing the same dance week after week, it is natural that you will begin to pick up on the moves.

There are other fans of Dancing with the Stars that are indeed fans for the simple fact that the celebrities on the show (at least one per season) have been someone that they are a fan of. This became very evident in the fourth season of the show when Billy Ray Cyrus was teamed up with professional dancer Karina Smirnoff. Billy Ray Cyrus is a singer and actor with a wide following. He lacked skills in dancing to put it nicely. This did not prevent Billy Ray from making it to the final five contestants of the season. It was quite remarkable actually that he lasted all the way to be eliminated 7th.

I am a very large fan of both the show Dancing with the Stars and also of Billy Ray Cyrus and I even knew that he should have been eliminated before he was. The simple fact that the public gets to vote as well as the judges allowed Billy Ray and Karina to stay in the competition longer. If it were strictly up to the judges, they would have been eliminated long before they were.

One other reason for the wide acceptance of the show Dancing with the Stars could be the fact that this particular show is not age specific for its target audience. There really is not a target age. The show can be enjoyed by both children and adults as well as by females and males alike.

No matter why people like the show, it is true that people do seem to have fallen for Dancing with the Stars. Many people are anxiously awaiting the arrival of season seven to see who will compete this time and who will win.
