Classic TV Stars Maureen McCormick, Marilu Henner Join Dancing with the Stars Season 23; NBC to Encore Comedies on Fridays
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. As announced on ABC's Good Morning America, the celebrities with their professional partners heading to the ballroom this season (in alphabetical order) are:
· Amber Rose (The Amber Rose Show) with Maksim Chmerkovskiy
· Calvin Johnson Jr. (NFL star) with Lindsay Arnold
· Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place) with Jenna Johnson
· James Hinchcliffe (IndyCar driver) with Sharna Burgess
· Jana Kramer (country singer, One Tree Hill) with Gleb Savchenko
· Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds (musician) with Allison Holker

· Rick Perry (politician) with Emma Slater
· Ryan Lochte (swimmer, Olympic gold medalist) with Cheryl Burke
· Terra Jolé (Little Women: LA) with Sasha Farber
· "Vanilla Ice" Robert Van Winkle (rapper) with Witney Carson
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.
