If you've been watching Dancing With the Stars for a while, you'll know that the ABC reality competition has a pretty set pattern: one cycle in the Fall and one cycle in the Spring, every year. Occasionally, it shakes things up a little — for instance, last Spring's cycle was a shortened season featuring athletes only — but the schedule is pretty much always the same. That is, until this year. For the first time in years, this Spring will not see a new season of Dancing With the Stars; the show isn't scheduled to return until later this Fall. So what's the reasoning behind this unexpected decision?
