Brooke Burke's First Job on 'Oprah' (VIDEO)

Brooke Burke's First Job on 'Oprah'Brooke Burke has come a long way since her first job. As a 15-year-old, she worked part-time at a pretzel shop, making $3.75 an hour. Now, the model and TV star is co-host of 'Dancing With the Stars' and makes -- well, a lot more than she used to. On 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Burke gets a chance to reenact her first job, and finds that her pretzel-making skills have really fallen apart.

'Dancing with the Stars' -'Performance 1' Recap

Buzz Aldrin practices with professional Ashly Costa
(S10E01) It's the tenth season of 'Dancing with the Stars' and, shockingly, five years have past since the first performance. I'm happy to see that the show finally made some interesting changes. The opening sequence doesn't cause me to have seizures from all the kaleidoscope spins, the graphics are now different, and the couples sit in a fish tank off to the side of the stage.

Speaking of couples, the eleven couples all looked nervous as they looked down the stairs, hoping they didn't trip and fall on live television. We get to see all the contestants perform one Latin and one Ballroom performance before anyone gets eliminated. This week the contestants will have to tackle either the Cha-Cha or the Viennese Waltz.

This is the first episode for Brooke Burke as Tom's co-host. Burke did a decent job replacing Samantha Harris, but in all reality, I'm still not paying attention to the post-dance interviews.

Tom Bergeron revealed his new 'Dancing With the Stars' co-host today on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC). Bergerson said that Brooke Burke, the 'DWTS' champion from season seven, will be joining him when the show premieres in two weeks.

Bergeron said that Burke's previous experience on the show makes her a good fit as co-host. "She'll be able to talk to the couples backstage with the perspective of having been through it herself, which will be interesting," he said.

by Chris Jordan, posted Jan 29th 2010 2:00PM
It's the last dance for Samantha Harris on 'Dancing With the Stars.'

Harris will not return as the show's co-host when the ABC series returns on March 22. After eight years interviewing the celebs and pro dancers alongside Tom Bergeron, Harris is moving on to concentrate on other gigs.

Producers haven't announced details about replacing Harris, but we've come up with our own list (in alphabetical order) of a few candidates who make sense, and maybe one or two who kind of don't:

Dancing With The Stars: Week 10 The Finale

by Brett Love, posted Nov 26th 2008 12:15AM

Lance Bass, Brooke Burke, Warren Sapp - Dancing With The Stars
(S07E21) In the grand tradition of Dancing With The Stars, everyone came together for the glorious task of turning 3 minutes of results into a two hour ratings bonanza. If you have seen the finale before, you know how it all went down. Take a couple of musical numbers, interviews or dances with all the eliminated contestants, and add in a whole lot of replays as the show looks back at all that has gone on. It's not the greatest recipe for a two hour show, but after 20 episodes of top ten numbers, I suppose they've earned it. I'll not spoil the big surprise before the jump, so hit the link for a brief look at all that went on, and to find out who took home the mirrorball.

Dancing With The Stars Finalists
(S07E20) After two and a half months, and nineteen episodes, it all comes down to this. Our remaining three couples made their way back to the ballroom for what Tom called, "The most closely contested finals ever." That was an apt description after what we saw in the semi-finals. With Lance & Lacey wrestling the lead away from Brooke & Derek as we neared the end of the season, it really looked like season seven could go to anyone. How would it play out? Would it all come down to the big freestyle numbers? And, oh yeah, which dancing kids team won? The answers to all of those questions, and a look at the rest of the finals performances, after the jump.

Dancing With The Stars: Who will win?

DWTS finalists
Down at Dancing With The Stars HQ they are prepping the ballroom for finals week. Tomorrow night we'll know who is taking home the big mirror ball. But there's no fun in waiting for it to actually happen. We should just go ahead and crown a champion right now. Our pals over at AOL took a poll of bloggers that cover the show, and that one had Lance coming out on top.

If I have learned anything in my time here at TV Squad though, it's that the TVS readers can pick a DWTS champion. Last season some 75% of you had Kristi Yamaguchi taking home the trophy. So, before we all get settled in to watch the drama unfold, let's take a poll. After the jump, I'll make my case for a winner, and open up the voting for the TV Squad champion.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 9 results

by Brett Love, posted Nov 18th 2008 11:57PM

Kristi Yamaguchi & Mark Ballas - Dancing With The Stars
(S07E19) The big question coming into the results show this week, obviously, was who would make it through to the finals. That, on its own, was probably enough to get most of the crowd to tune in. The powers that be could have just banked on it and tossed any old random segment out there to fill up the first 50 minutes of the show. Some Jimmy Kimmel here... a highlight reel there... the numbers would have still been huge. Lucky for us, that's not what they did, at all. It was the biggest musical event the show has ever seen. Along with those big results, we saw performances from Leona Lewis, John Legend, Julianne Hough, and the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. If that wasn't enough, reigning champ Kristi Yamaguchi stopped by to dance. It made for a fun hour. The results, and a look at all of those performances, after the jump.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 9

Cody Linley & Julianne Hough - Dancing With The Stars
(S07E18) And then, there were four. If you wanted, you could make an argument for Maurice Greene, but I think the viewers did a solid job narrowing the field down to these four teams. Coming into the semi-finals, all of them had a legitimate shot at making it to the big show next week. It would all come down to their two week 9 performances. Along the way, we had a little bit of something old, and something new. As in years past, the stuffiest of the judges made his rounds to all of the final four teams for Len Goodman's Master Class. New to this season, they also managed to work in two pro numbers as examples of what to look for in the salsa and the jitterbug. It all added up to a pretty entertaining night. There were 10s, and there were 7s. Who came out on top? The scores, and a rundown of all the performances, after the jump.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 8 results

Lacey & Benji Schwimmer - Dancing With The Stars
(S07E17) It's crunch time. A trip to the semi-finals was riding on the results tonight. One couple would fall just short of that goal. Would it be the steady, season long leader, Brooke? Or the young, and sometimes erratic, Cody? Have fans warmed up to big Warren Sapp? Or do they prefer their championship athletes to be of the faster variety, and favor Maurice? And what of Lance & Lacey? Is it just Len, or have fans turned on them too? The answers, are after the jump, along with a rundown of the various performances and taped packages. Those include my favorite results show performance of the season, and my most hated piece of filler as well.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 8

Brooke Burke & Derek Hough - Dancing With The Stars
(S07E16) Week eight. We're getting down to it now, just two weeks away from the finals. You can certainly make a case for a couple of teams that would be considered the favorites, but at this point in the competition, anyone can win. All of the teams are one bad number, one set of nutty judges scores, or one weak fan vote away from elimination. Upping the pressure this week, not only would each team be performing both a ballroom and a Latin number, but each star would have to do a 15-second solo.
