Julianne Hough joins 'Dancing With the Stars' as fourth judge

Dancing With the Stars has already announced who the pros will be for season 19, and now there’s another familiar face joining the team. Good Morning America exclusively announced this morning that Julianne Hough will be joining the judges’ panel this upcoming season.

Hough is a two-time DWTS champion herself and has appeared as a guest judge on the show in the past. Now, she will officially add a fourth chair to the judges’ table, sitting alongside returning judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli.

“I’m so excited to be back with my Dancing with the Stars family again on a regular basis,” Hough said in a press release. “I’ve always aspired to be an all-around entertainer, whether I’m acting, dancing or singing, and I’m thrilled for this opportunity that will allow me to continue all of those pursuits. Derek and I just finished our Move Live on Tour, which reminded me how much I miss the interaction with the dance fans that have been so supportive of me in my career. I am warming up the paddles and the sass, and I’m ready to have fun in this new role.”

Dancing with the Stars premieres Monday, Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Meet the pros for season 19 of 'Dancing With the Stars'

Dancing With the Stars is a little over a month away from kicking off its 19th season—and earlier today, on Good Morning America, we got our first glimpse at which 12 professional dancers will be twirling ex-actors, current actors, athletes, hosts, and more around that ballroom floor in hopes of eventually taking home the coveted Mirrorball Trophy.

For devoted fans of the show, there’s good and bad news. The bad: Maksim Chmerkovskiy decided against surprising the world and returning to the show. But at least his last routine was his best? READ FULL STORY

'Dancing with the Stars' renewed by ABC, plus 3 other reality shows

It lost some sheen after losing that second night of results but ABC isn’t giving up on one of the last great variety shows on broadcast TV: Dancing with the Stars has been renewed for a 19th season.

The most recent installment — which saw a personnel shakeup in the celebraquarium and changes to band — averaged a 2.5 rating in 18-49 and a respectable 15.4 million viewers. Not too shabby for the veteran franchise, which still manages to generate a lot of interest. (Who doesn’t like fringe?)

DWTS was one of several shows renewed by ABC in the last 24 hours in anticipation of its presentation to advertisers Tuesday in New York.

UPDATE: Also renewed: Shark Tank for season 6, The Bachelor for season 19 and America’s Funniest Home Videos for season 25.

Brooke Burke-Charvet leaves 'Dancing With the Stars'

Brooke Burke-Charvet, a former winner and host of Dancing With the Stars, has left the ballroom. Late Friday night, Tom Bergeron’s co-host posted this lightly worded tweet: “weird day….Shocking pre-season elimination #DWTS…ME. @Tom_Bergeron didn’t even read my name. I won’t be returning to the show this season.”

“I’ve seen my fair share of shocking eliminations in the ballroom but this one takes the cake,” added Burke-Charvet, 42, in a statement to E! Online. “I’ve always been one to embrace change and looking forward to pursuing opportunities I previously wasn’t able to entertain because of contractual obligations to the show.”

Burke-Charvet won the seventh season of the dancing-competition series alongside partner Derek Hough. She took over hosting duties from Samantha Harris in 2010.

The 18th season of DWTS premieres on March 17, and not just without Burke-Charvet. The show has also decided to replace bandleader Harold Wheeler and his 28 musicians.
