The long-standing ABC series has struggled to get younger audiences into the ballroom action in the ratings — something the network wants to remedy for Season 17 — but the most recent crop of 2013 Teen Choice Award nominees suggests teens are already watching Dancing With the Stars.
Judge Carrie Ann Inaba has been nominated for Choice TV Personality — Female, alongside fellow reality TV ladies Cat Deeley (So You Think You Can Dance), Erin Andrews (FOX Sports), Heidi Klum (America's Got Talent), and Demi Lovato (The X Factor). It's going to be hard for Carrie Ann to beat Demi — those Lovatics are crazy! — but we think she has a pretty good shot, especially after he wild and crazy antics on Season 16. Remember when she hit her head on the desk? Oh, and that time she cried after Andy Dick's emotional Viennese Waltz? Yeah, Carrie Ann can do it all!
