Tired of the filler on the "Dancing With the Stars" results shows each Tuesday? Seems like ABC might be as well.

In a press release about its 2013-2014 TV schedule, the network revealed that it is cutting the ballroom bash down to just a two-hour Monday show.

" 'Dancing with the Stars' will now air from 8-10 p.m. on Mondays, integrating the performance show and results show into one night and making each episode action-packed event television," states the press release.

"We want to focus it in by taking the results show and building it into the two-hour block on Mondays to really drive viewership," Paul Lee, president of ABC's entertainment group, told reporters.

ABC has not yet revealed how the results would be integrated into the performance shows.

Taking the place of "Dancing's" results shows on Tuesday nights this fall are comedies "The Goldbergs" at 9 and "Trophy Wife" at 9:30.

During the ABC upfronts presentation Tuesday, the network poked fun at the ballroom bash. "They're not really stars. We picked them up at the bus station," late-night host Jimmy Kimmel joked, referring to a common fan complaint that the celebrities are rarely truly stars.
