Dancing With the Stars
After a one-year experiment that saw “Dancing With the Stars” move from the ABC network to the Disney+ streaming service in an effort to pull in younger viewers, Disney has opted to move the competition series back to ABC next season.
The initial shift was done by executives at the now-defunct Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution (DMED) division, many of whom are now gone in the months since Bob Iger returned. Episodes will still be available to stream on-demand on Disney+ and next-day on Hulu. [Source: Vulture]
