DWTS

I'm surprised no thread on this. My intial thoughts are not as exciting as other seasons. But it's early yet. Chaka Khan was awful, that housewife Kim not much better and Gary Busey just a joke. I figured T Braxton would be good and of course Nick Carter. Bindi Irwin just a whirlwind of energy, very entertaining.
But I wonder if this show is just becoming a plug-in template: the social media kid, the aging diva, the former child star, etc.
I was surprised how much I missed Len on the panel. But I do like 3 judges over 4.
