ABC Admits to Voting Issues on 'Dancing With the Stars'
The network says the problems "affected each finalist equally."
ABC admits it faced voting issues this week on Dancing With the Stars.
Producers said Tuesday the contestants received a "record amount of activity," which overloaded its online and phone voting system after Monday's final competition show. The network has been denying voting issues all season in light of Bristol Palin's longevity on the show. PHOTOS: What critics said about Bristol this year.
"Some viewers reported experiencing difficulties registering their votes for the Dancing With the Stars finale, which affected each finalist equally," show producers said in a statement, as obtained by the Huffington Post. "The issue was promptly addressed [and voting times were not extended]."
Jennifer Grey, best known for her Dirty Dancing role, was crowned the winner Tuesday night. Palin came in third.
