New Dancing with the Stars Cast Has Jaleel White, Melissa Gilbert; Fox Alters Monday and Thursday Schedule





The waiting game is over, the rumors are laid to rest, the full line-up of season fourteen stars of Dancing with the Stars are now in! This season's dynamic lineup of stars -- including a Super Bowl champion, a sitcom star, a telenovela star, a tennis legend, a Disney Channel star, a classical singing star and a music legend – will perform either the Foxtrot or the Cha Cha for the first time on live national television with their professional partners during the two-hour season premiere on Monday, March 19, 2012 from 8-10pm.



Of note for SitcomsOnline.com, we have Steve Urkel himself--actor Jaleel White from the hit TGIF ABC sitcom Family Matters from the '90s. Jaleel teams with two-time champ Kym Johnson, who returns for her 11th season. We also have classic TV star Melissa Gilbert, who of course played Laura Ingalls on the family drama Little House on the Prairie in the '70s and '80s. Melissa partners with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who returns for his 12th season. And one more star of note for us is actress/host Sherri Shepherd from The View. Sherri also has starred on sitcoms such as Sherri and Less Than Perfect and has guest starred on many as well like 30 Rock and Everybody Loves Raymond. Sherri partners with Maks' brother Val Chmerkovskiy, who is returning for his second season as a professional partner.
Other stars on the new season include Disney sitcom star Roshon Fegan (Shake It Up), actress/host Maria Menounos (Extra), actor Jack Wagner (Melrose Place), and eight-time Grammy winner Gladys Knight. View the full list of stars and their professional partners. And we just might see the Urkel Dance (pictures above) this season! Do the Urkel!
