'All-Stars' take the stage as 'DWTS' returns

With increased competition from rival networks on Monday and Tuesday nights, ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" was looking to revive a strong but aging competition show. Enter the "All-Stars."

Thirteen fan favorites from seasons past, including six former champions, returned to the stage Monday night for the first "DWTS: All-Stars" tournament.

Cha-chas and foxtrots were the routines of choice on Monday, with Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke topping everyone with a score of 24.5 out of 30.

Kym Johnson: 'DWTS: All-Stars' is 'quite scary'

If there's one comfort Kym Johnson has going into the "All-Stars" season of "Dancing With the Stars," which premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC, it's that she's back with her friend and former dancing partner, Joey Fatone.

'Family Game Night' host reflects on Emmy win, new season

It's been quite the year for Todd Newton.

His memoir, "Life in the Bonus Round," was released in July. He's currently on tour hosting "The Price is Right Live," a stage show based on the iconic CBS series. And he won his first Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host for his work on The Hub's "Family Game Night."

"I'm still on an incredible high," Newton says about his Emmy win. "When you stand up there and give your acceptance speech, I just started to feel that culmination of 20 years in television and the many people who made that reality for me."

What'd you think of NBC's 'Revolution? Critics weigh in

Fifteen years after a permanent global blackout, the Mathesons are struggling to survive. An evil militia rules in the absence of technology, and few know how to restore the peace - Ben Matheson (Tim Guinee) and his brother Miles (Billy Burke) are presumably two of them.

In case the parallels between NBC’s “Revolution,” which premiered on Monday, and “The Hunger Games” aren’t yet apparent, we’ll note: this post-apocalyptic adventure stars Tracy Spiridakos as Charlie, a teenage girl who wields a bow and arrow.
