Until FX renewed The League Monday, die-hard fans were panicked they had seen the last of Kevin's meltdowns and Ruxin's schemes. Creators and executive producers Jackie and Jeff Schaffer said they never doubted the comedy's future.

"I honestly never questioned it," Jackie tells "I think we have the funniest cast on TV hands down. We weren't done with them, the network wasn't done with them yet and God knows the fans weren't done with them...

Chad Ochocinco
Maybe it's just coincidence, or maybe it's timing, but it looks like Chad Ochocinco didn't want to be left out of all the break-ups and match-ups in Hollywood by getting engaged to Evelyn Lozada of Basketball Wives.

The news comes less than two months since his reality show's end, The Ultimate Catch on VH1.

The couple is one example of a celebrity match made in the social media space when they got together by exchanging Twitter messages during the summer. Since then, the couple made no effort in hiding their relationship, as they courted while Ochocinco's reality show was still on the air...

Poplopedia: Former 'Real World' Cast Member Brings The Drama To 'Basketball Wives 2'

11/11/2010 12:59pm EST
Basketball Wives
A former reality star from “The Real World” helps to bring the drama that reality fans have grown to love on the new season of “Basketball Wives 2.”

Some of us have come to accept that the women, who appeared on the first season of “Basketball Wives,” hardly count as actual wives of ballplayers. They were either ex-girlfriends/wives or baby mothers of players (with probably one “wife” actually being a wife), but fans of the show didn’t really mind the contradiction in cast members because the entertaining feuds that this guilty pleasure programming offered sufficed.

“The League” creators Jeff and Jackie Schaffer can’t believe their luck when it comes to the number of athletes who are begging to appear on their hit FX show. “People we cannot have ever imagined would have approached us to be on the show are now coming to us to say they want to be on the show,” says Jackie. “So we feel like the players must have embraced it or that wouldn’t be happening.”

Professional athletes aren’t the only ones who have embraced the show which centers on a group of men whose fantasy football league is at the center of their lives and friendship. The stars of the show ...

Cheryl Burke showed off her beautiful dancer body in a tight bandage dress while joining her fellow "Dancing With The Stars" professionals at a pre-launch soiree at STK in Los Angeles on Monday.

Last season rumors swirled that Cheryl was hooking up with her partner Chad Ochocinco. Despite their on-screen sexual tension, they were not a couple. So who will Cheryl be linked to this season? She's going to be dancing with former Lakers star Rick Fox.

Burke has won two mirror ball trophies - with season 2 winner Drew Lachey and season 3 winner Emmitt Smith.

Cheryl Burke Confuses ‘Toy Story 3’ Premiere With ‘Sex Toy Story 3’ Premiere

Cheryl Burke
"Dancing With The Stars" pro Cheryl Burke must not have gotten the memo that the "Toy Story 3" premiere in Los Angeles was a family event. She sexed up the red carpet in a tight, white mini dress and black f***-me boots.

The two-time DWTS champ made headlines on the latest season of her hit TV show for her alleged relationship with partner Chad Ochocinco. But despite their on-screen sexual tension, the couple are just friends. Ochocinco and Burke were the eighth couple eliminated from the "Dancing with the Stars" tenth season.

What 'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Lacked – Unpredictability

Erin Andrews
“Dancing With The Stars” is a great idea for a television show – get a handful of some famous faces, pair them with professional dancers and dress them up in sparkly outfits while they get harsh criticism filled with double entendres. As season 10 came to a close last night, it’s clear that audiences have really grown to love this formula as the show’s ratings top the juggernaut that is “American Idol”.

However, here’s one complaint – the celebrities with the dancing experience always place the highest! Ok so DWTS is a show based around competitive dancing. It’s like the free market where ...

The final three celebrities gave it one last dance for judges on Tuesday night's "Dancing With The Stars" finale, but it was Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger who emerged victorious, narrowly edging out the other two competitors - ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews, and Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek - to win the show's coveted Mirror Ball Trophy.

During the finale, the three competitors danced the Tango in the penultimate elimination. Andrews was ousted first, leaving Scherzinger to face off against Lysacek in one final dance-off before being crowned champion.

Pamela Anderson Waltzes Off 'Dancing With The Stars'

Pamela Anderson has been booted off TV's Dancing With The Stars after failing to wow viewers with her waltz.

The former Baywatch beauty and her professional partner Damian Andrews were eliminated from the ballroom dance show on Tuesday after the star found herself in the bottom two with sports presenter Erin Andrews. The result came as a shock to head judge Len Goodman, who called the public's decision "absolutely heartbreaking."

However, Anderson insists she has no regrets about her performance and is "really happy" to have made it to the final six. She says, "We felt we could go furthe...

Kate Gosselin Booted From 'Dancing With The Stars'

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Reality TV mom Kate Gosselin has one fewer job to juggle.

The author and reality star was eliminated Tuesday from "Dancing With the Stars," leaving seven couples in the competition.

Gosselin failed to ignite the ballroom, landing near the bottom of the judges' leaderboard during five weeks of dancing. She and professional partner Tony Dovolani came into Tuesday's results show with the week's lowest score: 15 points out of 30 for a lackluster foxtrot.

"I think Tony could have had more life out of a frock on a coat hanger," judge Bruno Tonioli said Monday.

Engagement rumors have been surfacing all week over Chad Ochocinco and his "Dancing With The Stars" partner, Cheryl Burke, but are they true? False!

Despite their on-screen sexual tension and the flashy ring incident, Ochocino has a new dating show in the works. Sorry Cheryl! Sources say the Cincinnati Bengal’s star wide receiver will use his time off the field to play a new kind of field, but this time on VH1.

Women from across the country will be competing for a chance to win Chad’s heart, but will they be able to handle the jealousy that comes with dating one of the NFL’s hottest playe...

'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Rumbas, Tangos, And A Twist Of Kate

4/13/2010 1:20pm EDT
The stunt-heavy tenth season of “Dancing with the Stars” continued last night with a “Double Score Showdown,” where each team received scores for both technique and performance. Despite a few much-needed triumphs (Kate! Chad!), it was an odd, unpredictable episode where the whole was often better (and more entertaining) than the sum of the judges’ scores.

First up, Erin and Maks performed the tempting, titivating Tango. I thought their dance was really entertaining and they did a good job performing it. The judges were not as enthusiastic, although Len admittedly did like the lack of blind...

'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: Bedtime Stories With The Stars

Dancing With the Stars
Once upon a time, there was judge... Let’s call him Len. He wanted to see dancing that told a story on this week’s “Dancing with the Stars.” He got his wish. But there was a price. This was a dance competition and the performers started sacrificing their dancing for the story. Len did not see this coming and he was not happy. He scowled and criticized, and gave the stars lower scores than they deserved. How dare Derek Hough break the laws of the quick step!!!!! Until finally, the night of dancing was over and Len vowed to never again ask these fools to do anything but dance.

That was the b...

It's Week 2 of "Dancing with the Stars" and everyone has a second chance to strut their stuff before the first couple is eliminated tomorrow night.

Up first is Shannen Doherty (Go BREN!!!) dancing the Jive with spotlight hog/partner, Mark Ballas. The judges are digging her tonight and Bruno even makes a "Heathers" reference. Shannen has not been this happy after a dance since Brenda lost her virginity to Dylan at West Beverly High's Spring Dance. Unfortunately, her scores are a little lower than expected, given all the praise, but still an improvement over last week. (18 last week + 20 to...

Top 5 To Watch March 22-28: 'Dancing with the Stars,' 'V: The Arrival,' & More

V: The Arrival
"Dancing with the Stars" is back! The favorite reality competition will return Monday for its tenth season with 11 new celebrities strutting their stuff for this season's grand title. They're saying that this will be the best season yet, and they may be right if they mean it will be the best season to see the most hysterical dancers to date. They've put together quite the cast for season 10, and although I don't normally like to pick a winner before the premiere, I'm already putting my money on either Evan Lysacek, the Olympic gold medal figure skater, or Nicole Scherzinger, the Pussycat Do...

Dancing With The Stars
The 10th installment of "Dancing with the Stars" doesn’t begin until Monday, March 22, so we haven’t seen how well (or not-so-well) this season’s 11 singers, actors, athletes and TV personalities can shake their booties.

Pamela Anderson, 42

Occupation: Former Playboy playmate, actress, blonde bombshell

Chances of winning: 1 in 6.

Why? Perhaps the most popular of the group, Anderson already has a large fanbase that includes both men and women. But, unfortunately, she’s ...
