It didn't take long for DWTS to find a replacement for Brooke Burke-Charvet after giving her the boot!
But what was the real motivation to choose Erin Andrews to take her place?? Well, apparently it's all about bringing in a new audience!
As a prominent sports reporter/ blonde bombshell, Erin has a considerably large audience of young male viewers, and sources say the show's execs are hoping she'll bring some of those boys along with her!
The move came shortly after DWTS fired longtime musical director Harold Wheeler and his live band, which was also supposedly done in hopes of bringing in a younger audience!!
We guess we'll just have to wait until next season to see if all of these changes pay off!
