Maureen McCormick Marilu Henner

The celebrity cast of Dancing with the Stars are slipping on their dancing shoes and getting ready for their first dance on the ballroom floor, as the 23rd season kicks off on Monday, Sept. 12, 2016 from 8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT, on the ABC Television Network. This season's lineup of celebrity dancers includes two Gold medal-winning U.S. Olympians, a multi Grammy award-winning musician, a star of one of the most iconic television programs ever, one of the greatest wide receivers of all time, and the former governor of Texas, to name just a few.

· Amber Rose (The Amber Rose Show) with Maksim Chmerkovskiy
· Calvin Johnson Jr. (NFL star) with Lindsay Arnold

The Good Place

NBC will air encores of its Thursday comedies on Fridays for at least the first three weeks of the season, as NBC has delayed the new season of Caught on Camera with Nick Cannon to Friday, Oct. 14 at 8pm. Instead, repeats of Superstore and new comedy The Good Place will air from 8-9pm for three weeks (Sep. 23, Sep. 30 and Oct. 7). As a reminder, remember The Good Place is a unique new comedy that follows Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell, House of Lies, Veronica Mars), an ordinary woman who, through an extraordinary string of events, enters the afterlife where she comes to realize that she hasn't been a very good person. With the help of her wise newfound afterlife mentor (Ted Danson, Bored to Death, Cheers), she's determined to shed her old way of living and discover the awesome (or at least the pretty good) person within.
