'Dancing With The Stars' Season 18 Episode Recap: Was Erin Andrews and Her Voice Annoying? [Poll]
The premiere episode of DWTS was basically a refresh of contestants, the band and even Tom Bergeron's co-host. And while loyal fans of the show got pretty much excited with their bets, some were a little pissed off.
That is, some viewers of Dancing With The Stars aired their feelings regarding Brooke Burke-Charvet's replacement on Twitter. Generally, the comments were quite gloomy though there are a few notable positive remarks.

PEOPLE's Tom Gliatto also commented on Erin Andrews' first take on the show, saying "Andrews talks with the flat, unhesitant delivery and slanginess of an experienced announcer, and she casually plants herself on the floor with a kind of no-nonsense strength."
"She is angular and even willowy, but her center of gravity appears to be unshakable. If you covered the Super Bowl, wouldn't you be the same way? How would you survive otherwise? This may explain why she was sometimes overemphatic with a Jane Lynch bluntness," he adds.
Entertainment Weekly's Annie Barrett also said that Erin Andrews' first time hosting Dancing With The Stars was a "good, if a bit trying-too-hard" effort.
