Fans have already started to complain about the shift in the show schedule. A woman named Anastatia Durante made the following comment to the ABC Local 10 website, “This is very unfair to fans of DWTS. By moving the show to the middle of the night you have disenfranchised us. Voting ends at 11 PM in the east coast, not 5 o’clock tomorrow morning. That is unfair to both the fans and the contestants. By eliminating the possibilbly millions of votes that would have been cast here, you are skewing the results as this is the semi-finals, you may be changing the outcome of the entire season. Why wasn’t the show moved to MeTV and shown at the regular time that Jeopardy will be? This was a thoughtless and cruel decision by Local 10.”
