DWTS will put its best feet forward Monday, Sept. 16 at 8/7c — now airing just one day a week, coming off a stretch of ratings stumbles (including its lowest-rated finale ever).

How will it work, rid of a results show? Each week, viewers will vote for their favorite performance. A couple will be eliminated at the end of each Monday episode by combining the judges’ scores for that night with the public votes from the previous week.
