"Dancing with the Stars" heralded a new concept this evening, a first for the series. Each dance was to be based on a famous Disney movie during Disney Week. This week had guest judge Donny Osmond behind the table critiquing the contestants. Osmond won Season 9 of the series and has an inside track on what the judges want. He said, "I feel like I'm home" and went on to discuss his long history with Disney, as his brothers were discovered by Walt Disney himself. Unfortunately this would be Cody's last week in the ballroom, as he was voted out of the competition.

"Dancing with the Stars" broke new ground tonight, as the stars and their usual partners switched up and the stars tried their hand at dancing with new professionals. It was a challenge at times as comfortable patterns were broken and the stars had to find the zone in the arms of their new partners. Former "DWTS" professional Julianne Hough joined the judges table and had mostly glowing comments about the pros and the stars, but this week the claws of the rest of the judges finally came out as they made their likes and dislikes well known to the stars.

Week three of "Dancing with the Stars" was a sentimental view at important moments in the lives of the celebs.

After a pep talk from Len during practice, you can tell that Bill has really showed improvement on his Waltz. How can you not love Bill? The judges agree and give Bill and Emma a 24.

It’s week nine on Dancing With the Stars and the competition is getting fierce. Amber Riley and Derek are up first tonight with the Quickstep but will she be able to overcome her double knee injury and power through the steps?

With only eight competitors left in week six of Dancing With the Stars, this will be an intense week of competition. The stars will face the Tango, Paso Doble, Waltz, Foxtrot, Samba, Quickstep, Cha Cha and a special improvisation dance with our favorite redneck, Bill Engvall and his partner Emma Slater up first.

Dancing With The Stars
Despite being a really good dancer, Christina Milian was voted off "Dancing With The Stars" on Monday night.

The singer and her dancing partner Mark Ballas received the top scores for their latest dance, the Cha Cha Cha, but that didn't help keep them in the competition.

Milian said of her elimination: "I was shocked, for sure... After having a great performance you feel a lot more confident, but in the back of your mind you know a lot of this is determined by votes. I guess it just didn't work out."

2013 Fall TV Season: What Will Be The Second Cancellation?

October 8th, 2013 6:00pm EDT
NBC- The Voice is still doing good numbers on Monday/Tuesday. The Blacklist is winning its timeslot, and was the first show (technically) to be rewarded with a back-nine pickup. Chicago Fire is also doing solid numbers on Tuesday. Revolution needs to regain some audience members if it wants a second season. With the success of The Blacklist, and Chicago Fire doing OK, Revolution is looking to be one of NBC’s weaker points right now. I can’t see it not running the full second season, but it might not get a third. Also, Ironside is definitely going to get cancelled. The premiere was so low, a...
