HOT SPOT: ABC's 'Dancing With The Stars' Season 23 Premiere

by Brief Staff  |  09.14.2016

​In this promo for the season 23 premiere of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, Black Label Content takes the cast dancing across America.

Dancing With The Stars premiered on Monday, Sept. 12, which ended up being about even with its fall 2015 debut when the national ratings came in.  What differentiated this year’s premiere from any other is that two audience members rushed cast member and disgraced Olympics swimmer Ryan Lochte, while six women in the audience cheered them on. Lochte became a controversial figure this summer after he lied about being held up at gun point in Rio. He’s been banned from international swimming competitions for 10 months as a result of the incident.
