Viewers Angry WJLA Chooses Football Over Dancing

By Kevin Eck Comment

Some viewers are angry with Sinclair’s Washington, D.C. ABC affiliate WJLA after it chose to air the Monday Night Football game between the hometown team and the Pittsburgh Steelers and not Ryan Lochte’s debut on Dancing with the Stars Monday night.

“Feel seriously betrayed by WJLA,” one viewer wrote on the WJLA Facebook page. “For weeks we’ve been looking forward to the opening night of DWTS! Only to find out it was bumped for the Redskins game. Ok – it’s ok they said when we called yesterday – you can watch it at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday. Hello! We’re at work and school plus you can’t vote at 9 a.m. Thanks WJLA.”

WJLA is airing DWTS this morning from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
