Who Should Replace Samantha Harris on 'Dancing With the Stars'?

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:

Mario Lopez'Dancing With the Stars' returns to ABC next spring for season 10 -- a nice round number, which gives the show the ideal opportunity to launch an all-star tournament of champions. If they decide to do so, here are the hip-shaking, samba-rolling celebrities we'd most like to see return to the ballroom.

Dance War: Audition Show (season premiere)

by Kristin Sample, posted Jan 8th 2008 8:41AM
Dance War: Bruno and Carrie Ann(S01E01) So, thank goodness there is only going to be one audition show for Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann. On American Idol, the audition shows are usually the most entertaining to watch. In fact, I lose interest once those auditions are over until Idol reveals the finalists. But Dance War's auditions were just plain awful. The singing wasn't as good as American Idol and the dancing wasn't as good as So You Think You Can Dance. Is it really too much to ask for performers who can both sing and dance? Perhaps those people are already employed at real jobs on Broadway.

After the jump, I will go over some of the highlights from the auditions. I use the word "highlights" loosely here. Bruno, Carrie Ann and host Drew Lachey combed three cities in search of performers for the live shows: New York City, Los Angeles, and Nashville. I'll also review the first performance from the lucky fourteen finalists.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 4 results

Cameron & Edyta - Dancing With The Stars(S05E09)Tom opened the show talking about a night where controversy rocked the ballroom. I wouldn't call it so much rocking, as I would annoying, but that's just me. It does appear that some of that will be put to rest now. Len made a point of praising the pros for their excellent work, but warned them that he didn't want to see any more lifts. From here on out, they will incur a penalty from the judges.

They went right to the recap after that. Mark was really happy to be called the little engine that could. Floyd talked about his new experience, calling ballroom dancing better than hip-hop. Mel took the truck driver comment in good stride, asking for the truck driver vote. Jane was left trying to defend the lift again. Jenny ignored that lift nonsense and said she looks forward to continuing to improve. Cameron was excited about his three nines. As you would expect, Sabrina was thrilled to have the first perfect score of the competition.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 4 results

Tom Bergeron, Drew Lachey(S04E07) They opened the show tonight by naming Apolo and Joey as the standouts. I think they have it right on that one. Ian and Laila have the stuff to get themselves back in contention, but as we sit now, Apolo and Joey are a step ahead of everyone else. Two steps in front of a few people.

When it came time to pick the encore, Len credited Ian, Apolo, and Heather as having great performances the night before, but the encore went to Joey & Kym. It was a good choice. They were the best of the night, and their paso doble was just as good the second time around. They were followed up by the first musical performance of the night.

Dancing with the Stars goes on the road

by Anna Johns, posted Oct 28th 2006 6:37PM
drew lachey; dancing with the starsDancing with the Stars is getting a roadshow. Celebrities paired with real dancers will tour 38 U.S. cities, starting with San Diego on Dec. 19th. Celebrity contestants include Drew Lachey, Joey Lawrence, Willa Ford, Harry Hamlin (what?!?), Lisa Rinna and Joey McIntyre.

Why would anyone want to see this live? Absent-mindedly watching this on a Tuesday night is one thing... but actually paying cash to see mediocre dancers? American Idol does the same thing-- it sends mediocre singers on an American tour each year. I think the difference is the demogaphics.

Would you pay to watch Dancing with the Stars if they visited your town?

Cheryl Burke talks about Dancing tour, Emmitt Smith, and Paris Hilton

by Richard Keller, posted Oct 20th 2006 5:40PM

Cheryl Burke of Dancing with the StarsOur dear, dear friends over at AOL Television have an exclusive interview with Cheryl Burke. You're probably scratching your heads at this point, wondering who the heck Cheryl Burke is. Well, you may not know her by name, but you certainly know her by her moves, especially if you are fan of ABC's Dancing With the Stars. Over the last two seasons Cheryl has shimmied across the dance floor with celebrity performers. Last year she was paired with Drew Lachey and this time around she is partnered with Emmitt Smith.

In the interview, Cheryl breaks the news of an upcoming Dancing tour. While there is nothing confirmed as of yet, Burke says there will be at least six celebrities and their professional dance partners on tour. Additional dancers will be hired to fill spots in the two-hour show where the celebrities are not performing. On the subject of celebrity partners, Cheryl says she has had great luck with the people she has been paired with and let's us know what the differences are between Lachey and Smith (While Emmitt has more rhythm, dancing came easier to Drew, who had a musical background).

Also discussed during the interview is the recent flare-up between former Dancing contestant Shanna Moakler and Paris Hilton. For the unaware (or the uncaring), Hilton alleges Moakler attacked her at a L.A. nightclub after she found Paris with her estranged husband, Travis Barker of the band Blink 182. Burke says it wasn't true. In reality it was Stavros Niarchos, Hilton's ex, who pushed Moakler down some stairs and threatened to hit her. Got all of that? There will be a quiz later.

The full interview with Cheryl can be found at this link.

Drew Lachey wins Dancing with the Stars

lachey winsMaybe now people will start referring to Drew Lachey as 'the dancer' instead of 'the brother of Nick Lachey'. Last night, he and dancing partner Cheryl Burke won the ugly mirrorball trophy on ABC's Dancing with the Stars. Half of the decision was up to the judges and half was up to the voters.

Pro wrestler Stacy Keibler was eliminated halfway through the show, bringing it down to Drew and Jerry Rice.

What do you think? Is Drew the rightful winner?

Drew Lachey pressured to drop out of MAD TV appearance

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 22nd 2006 8:04AM
drew lachey mad tvApparently, Dancing with the Stars does not have a sense of humor. Drew Lachey, a surprisingly good dancer on the reality competition, was reportedly pressured by Dancing producers to cancel his guest appearance on MAD TV. Page Six claims it received an e-mail stating that the producers of the show "weren't thrilled with anyone on their shows participating in a parody of any sort." So, Drew cancelled his gig at the last minute. Hopefully MAD TV will make fun of Dancing anyway.
