The first episode of Dancing With the Stars aired on Disney Plus on Monday, September 19, and with it came a new co-host in the form of Season 19 Mirrorball Champion Alfonso Ribeiro. Fans took to social media to discuss how he was faring, with some already calling for him to take over as permanent solo host and remove Tyra Banks from the show.

Here’s what they say:

The majority of fans seem to be very excited about Ribeiro’s addition to the show. A Reddit thread titled “Alfonso does a great job” is filled with comments praising the actor and TV host for getting on his feet and bringing a lot of humor to the performance.

“Tyra really needed a co-host to keep her in check and he’s amazing,” one fan wrote in the comments, with a second adding, “His presence was much needed.”

A third fan wrote: “He’s doing so well. I also love how real it looks. I’m glad they have him in the skybox.”

“It really helps balance all of Tyra’s energy and she’s done a lot better not having to do all the hosting with such a tight time constraint. His humor, energy and closeness to the contestants are really great additions to hosting the show,” wrote a fourth fan.

The commenter who started the Reddit thread said they hope Ribeiro takes over Banks altogether, writing, “I hope he eventually becomes the main moderator because he’s really doing a much better job than Tyra.”

There are also many fans calling for Ribeiro to co-host with fired host Tom Bergeron, who was fired after season 28 along with Erin Andrews.

A second fan replied: “Imagine Alfonso and [Tom] Bergeron together! (No Tyra.) Erin Andrews too if she wants 😊,” to which a third fan replied, “Alfonso and Tom would make a dream team!”

A fourth fan wrote, “Alfonso seems so much better at thinking fast than Tyra, that’s the biggest thing that stands out to me.”

“Tira[‘s] The biggest problem is that she does everything about her first, second candidate. Nor can she improvise. Alfonso is just the opposite – he knows how to single out the contestants and respond to what they say instead of just using the script,” wrote another fan.

“I love Alfonzo. Disney needs to let go of Tyra. She is not qualified to host this show. Honestly, it’s unbearable to listen to,” one viewer wrote, to which another replied, “Hope they got him in as co-host for a season so they can ditch her next year and he run things alone or one can get new host. Lead them out the door tastier, for example.”

There were similar comments on Twitter about keeping Ribeiro and getting rid of Banks.

“Can we vote Tyra out and promote @alfonso_ribeiro and have another former contestant as co-host? Like @LindseyStirling or @kaitlynbristowe? Literally ANYONE would be better at this point.” wrote a viewer.

Other wrote“Who thinks #DWTS should just ditch Tyra and keep Alfonso as the host?” and a third added“Now that Alfonso is here, it’s even clearer that Tyra has to go.”

A quarter wrote, “I saw the premiere of #DWTS and I think @alfonso_ribeiro needs a better co-host. But it was a fun show overall. I haven’t paid any attention to the show for a few years, but tonight I was drawn into it. Tyra has to go, but the show was a lot more fun with Alfonso.”

Dancing With the Stars airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific Time on Disney Plus.
