ABC is designating this Monday, November 5 a “Day of Giving” across the network to encourage relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy. The day will coordinate with special programming from from Good Morning America, Live With Kelly & Michael, The View, Katie, Nightline, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Dancing With the Stars.
According to ABC, DWTS will personalize sections of the live All-Stars Week 7 Performance Show with “Day of Giving” messaging, integrating stories of how Hurricane Sandy has impacted several of the dancers on the show. We know Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Val Chmerkovskiy, and Tony Dovolani are all based in the Northeast, and many other stars and pros have family and friends all along the Eastern seaboard.
With this addition to Monday’s show it’s a really good thing they decided not to eliminate someone at the end of the night — there would be no time!
Catch a new episode of Dancing With the Stars Season 15: All-Stars on Monday, November 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT onABC.
