The Dancing with the Stars fall season will premiere Monday, September 12, ABC-TV, 8 p.m.

What follows is today’s news from ABC regarding the fall lineup of pros, celebrities, hosts, and judges.


PROS                                        CELEBRITIES

Val Chmerkovskiy        with        Laurie Hernandez, U.S. Olympic Gymnast

Cheryl Burke               with          Ryan Lochte, U.S. Olympic Swimmer

Artem Chigvintsev       with        Maureen McCormick, Actress               (“Marcia,” “Brady Bunch” TV show from 1960s/1970s)

Maksim Chmerkovskiy  with     Amber Rose, Talk Show Host/Activist

Emma Slater               with          Rick Perry, Former Texas Governor

Jenna Johnson            with         Jake T. Austin, Actor

Lindsay Arnold            with         Calvin Johnson, NFL Wide Receiver                                                                “Megatron”

Allison Holker             with         “BabyFace” Edmonds, Singer

Witney Carson            with          Vanilla Ice, Singer

Sharna Burgess           with          James Hinchcliffe, Pro Race Car Driver

Gleb Savchenko           with          Jana Kramer, Country Music Singer


Watch out for actress Marilu Henner, who, although she’s probably in her fifties, is well known for having nonstop energy. She also has a unique ability to remember nearly everything, even down to the date and the day of the week decades ago; that memory will come in handy to keep track of the fancy footwork she’ll have to do. Laurie Hernandez, gymnastics balance-beam specialist, and Ryan Lochte, are fresh from the Olympics, ready to compete for the Mirrorball Trophy rather than for gold, silver, or bronze medals. Remember that Olympians to date have performed excellently and even won on this show. Football players also have tended to do well. Even though I don’t know much about some of the celebs, I’m guessing that Laurie, Maureen, Marilu, Calvin, “BabyFace,” and Jana Kramer will have rhythm and good moves.


Welcome back to Cheryl, who won three times and has pursued other ventures for the past three years; to Maks, who took a couple of seasons off; to Derek, who has been on and will return to Broadway in NYC; to Allison Holker, who was on maternity leave last season; and to Gleb, who had one season as a pro a few years ago. Welcome to dance captain Jenna in her first time as a pro! Maks, please tell Peta that we miss her while she’s in pregnancy mode with your first child together.


Tom and Erin will host again while Len, Carrie Ann, and Bruno continue to judge. I’ve heard that seated between two of them this season will be Julianne Hough, returning after a season off to serve as judge #4, at least part of the time.


We’ll be able to see all of the couples together on “Good Morning America” on September 7.


Till next time and always, keep your dancing shoes on!
