Dancing With The Stars 28 Finale Date Revealed – See the Schedule

Host Tom Bergeron revealed the Dancing with the Stars Season 28 schedule on Twitter. Just like last year, the finale will be a one night affair, which probably means live voting during the episode will determine the winner.

According to Tom, the finale is set for Monday November 25. He had to correct himself–originally the post noted November 28 as the finale date. That’s Thanksgiving. Tom confirmed that the actual date of the finale is November 25.

Another fan asks Tom to confirm a one night finale, like last fall, and Tom answers “Yup.”

The date of the finale isn’t unusual. DWTS never airs past Thanksgiving. But prior to the fall 2018 season, even after the show cut back to once a week, Dancing with the Stars aired a two night finale.

DWTS producers seem to be taking a page from American Idol. ABC cut back its spring 2019 season to a one night finale. Live voting made the difference. If the result can be tabulated by the end of the episode–which DWTS currently employs–no need to stretch the finale out over two nights.

Of course, whether live voting delivers the best outcomes is the subject of another blog post.

With The Voice ratings continuing to drop, NBC may eventually cancel live Tuesday shows as well.

Anyway, check out the schedule for the rest of the season. Hopefully, former Fifth Harmony member Ally Brooke will still be in the competition for boy band and girl group week! However, after Ally wound up in the bottom 2 last week, who knows…
