Over the course of Dancing With The Stars’ first seventeen seasons, Harold Wheeler and the twenty-eight members of his live backing band cranked out plenty of brilliant renditions of classic tracks. To some music fans, they were a key ingredient to the show’s success, but apparently, producers of the hit show feel differently.
High School Musical actor Corbin Bleu is super into Game Of Thrones. To put it in a technical sense, it’s his “all-time favorite show on television right now.” Consequently, when his Dancing With The Stars partner Karina Smirnoff told him they’d be dancing the Viennese Waltz to the show’s theme song, he immediately knew what he had to do: wear a costume and do his Khal Drogo voice as many times during rehearsal as possible.
This week’s episode of Dancing with the Stars featured an incredible montage from the choreographers explaining how ABC’s celebrity dancing competition series really isn’t about being the best. Anyone who has watched the series again and again has seen talented dancers head home while average to bad dancers have continued to excel. According to the choreographers, the key to Dancing with the Stars is having a likeable story. Regardless, if Dancing with the Stars would just change the scoring up a little bit, it needn’t be that way.
Among the more dramatic moments in television in 1990 was the episode of Saved By The Bell in which overachiever Jessie Spano got hooked on caffeine pills in an effort to keep up with her studies and be a part of a singing group with her best friends Lisa Turtle and Kelly Kapowsi. The pressure and the pills got to be too much for her and she got so excited she melted down. Luckily, Zack was there to catch her when she fell.
With so many performers at the beginning of the competition, Dancing With The Stars is always looking for an exciting, yet clean way to introduce the cast. Typically, the show goes the safe route and simply introduces each couple as if they were walking into a very formal event. Not this season.

The celebrities and their partners have been announced today. Among the stars to make the roster for Season 17 are Saved By the Bell's Elizabeth Berkley -- who did a bit of dancing in Showgirls, if you recall -- High School Musical's talented and charismatic Corbin Bleu, Jersey Shore's Snooki and Bill Nye (the Science Guy!).
The news will invariably die down over the next few weeks after which Ms. Deen will be able to take one of two life paths. She can either go back home and rebuild her business from the ground up or she can stay in the public eye for a while longer and try to keep a grasp on the national inroads she has already made. If she wants to attempt the latter, reports indicate that ABC’s Dancing with the Stars may give Deen the shot.

Lindsay Lohan has been having trouble with her finances for months. Despite this, the 26-year-old star has turned down several offers from ABC’s popular reality competition series, Dancing with the Stars, to compete. Shockingly, it’s not because the star believes she is worth more money. Instead, she thinks she is too good for reality television.
Dancing with the Stars is a series that pushes some celebrities to their physical limits as they attempt to learn and master ballroom dancing and advance to the next round each week. Unfortunately for some, that can involve injuries. Melissa Rycroft is the latest contestant to suffer an injury and there's no word on whether she'll be able to perform tonight.
Dancing with the Stars will premiere its All-Stars season with a brand new format. During tonight’s Season 15 opener, all thirteen lovely dancing couples will be doing the Foxtrot or the Cha Cha, hoping to move forward in the competition. The Foxtrot and the Cha Cha sound pretty standard for ABC’s hit competition show; however, the new point system awarding the contestants high or low scores will be brand new.

As you may be aware, CBS has engaged in a bit of a legal altercation with ABC over the similarities of ABC's new reality series The Glass House to CBS' own long-running series Big Brother. Granted, Big Brother is based on a hugely popular international format, but CBS hasn't tried to claim otherwise.
