Dancing With the Stars: Season 19 Cast Announced!

http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/...ry?id=25215335

Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson
Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas
Michael Waltrip and Emma Slater
Lolo Jones and Keo Motsepe
Jonathan Bennett and Allison Holker
Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintsev
Antonio Sabato, Jr. and Cheryl Burke
Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff
Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy
Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd
Bethany Mota and Derek Hough
Betsey Johnson and Tony Dovolani
Tavis Smiley and Sharna Burgess

Plus Julianne Hough will be a fourth judge.
Also, nice to see Allison Holker added from SYTYCD.

I've had a thing for Lea Thompson since BTTF, so I think I'll be watching. I think she has a ballerina background. I think Alphonso has a jazz/tap background, and a long time ago, I've seen him break dance.

I guess I am out of the dance show business for a while- no one interests me except Tommy Chong and I kind of doubt he will last.

And a fourth judge puts me plumb off, so see ya in the funny papers!

Something tells me that someone who starred in a Broadway show called "The Tap Dance Kid" knows something about dancing - true, that was 30 years ago...

Of course, Alfonso is probably better known for another dance - one usually performed to "It's Not Unusual" by Tom Jones.

I still can't wrap my head around bring in contemporary dancers. Comparing contemporary and ballroom is like comparing Red Delicious and Granny Smith. I also can't shake the fear that a celebrity is going to try a move that's going to result in a reasonably serious injury.

I know Chong and Thompson, that's all. Oh yeah, Waltrip, too, or at least his other brother Darrell.

It's not called Ballroom Dancing with the Stars. It would be nice after 10+ years if they started to branch out a little especially since the ratings indicate this is starting to lose steam.

I think all these shows have way too many judges. They all say the same thing anyway. Simon Cowell is the only person who ever had original comments as a judge.

FYI, the UK show has four judges.

I don't expect her to last very many rounds, but it will be a hoot to see Betsey Johnson on the show.

Will Tony include her signature cartwheel in one of the routines?

Will she wear one of her I <heart> B J t-shirts in the rehearsal room?

Cheech and Chong were scheduled to appear here in early August but suddenly canceled the show due to scheduling reasons. Now maybe I know what happened.

I rally don't want to get drawn in, but @TeamChongAtroyd followed me on Twitter so I feel almost compelled to watch, now. I really hope Tommy has some moves because I'd hate for Peta to be going after one or two weeks.

Well, some of that was excruciatingly difficult to watch. Why did they bring Julianne back, again? Duck Dynasty girl was pretty good for first week. Looks like Derek has a decent partner as all. Randy Couture was surprisingly good. Carlton, pretty much as expected.

Duck Dynasty girl kept doing something with her mouth that bugged me.
Betsey needs a mercy killing.
Lolo needs a mercy killing as well. I do have a small hope she can build a bridge and get over it so I can see more of her partner Keo.
Alphonso and Leah, front runners.
Randy and Tavis surprised me, I want to see more.

I liked it! I was not planning on watching this year, but after the cast was announced I thought i would tune in and just see if I thought it was going to be worth watching and after doing so, I think I'm in for the season.

LOVED carlton! I figured he would do well, but he really knocked it out of the park. I think he will be the one to beat this year.

Duck Dynasty girl was cute.

I was not expecting to like Waltrip and almost chose his segment as a time to go start a load of laundry. Glad I didn't! He was hysterical.

As silly as it was, you had to love the Tommy Chong bit. I almost died when I saw Cheech in the low rider and honestly....was there any better choice of a song for him than a Snoop Dogg song?

Olympic girl, Lolo Whatsherface, needs to get over herself! I understand being disappointed, but there is something called losing with dignity and grace, and she failed that miserably! Did you see the look on her face the rest of the night! Look up sour puss in the dictionary and you will probably find her face. Hoping she is the one who goes home tonight.

Ok, I'm a guy, so that's that...ok......

For some reason I could not stop noticing that every time Julianne moved or sorta put her arms out or something that her bewbs kinda moved/raised up in unison.

Yeah, sophmoric comment but I found it very distracting and took away from my just enjoying the show.

I'm a straight middle aged woman and even I found her boobs distracting! I kept thinking one was going to pop out at any moment. Those puppies were barely contained. LOL

So someone else besides Len can get clouted in the ear by Bruno, obviously.

I am willing to bet they are considering shaking up the Judges panel as well as another attempt to get the youth vote.

Unfortunately its add more blathering time.

Well, the original show in the UK has a four-judge panel. The US show has been the weird one, with only three.

And later on in the show, we had less blather, because after a couple of times where people went on and on as they might have done in previous seasons with three judges, they ran the show out of judges' talk time and they began cutting out remarks from some of the judges.

We'll see what happens later in the season, when they get the hang of things, but they only have a 2-hour timeslot, and I doubt they'll cut the length of the performances. Maybe they'll trim down the video packages, and the goofy skits like DanceCenter.

I'm not opposed to Dance Center, just the way they do it. They can't make up their mind if they are making fun of themselves, or making fun of SportsCenter.

They could do a straight-up parody of SportsCenter without all the silly makeup they do on Jerry Rice and stuff like that, and it could be a LOT funnier.

Think about what they could do if they put Bruno on the panel instead of Len Goodman and turned him loose. I'm not saying it would be Robin Williams funny, but it would be better than the pathetic stuff they are writing now.

Loved Betsy Johnson's styling. Thanks to Tony, Betsy now sees herself as a pretty lady.

Loved Tommy Chong!

The dancing level is not even close to last year. I could name 6 off the top of my head (without counting Lolo) who shouldn't be anywhere near the finals. Trouble is, I have not idea how many couples will be in the finals this year (they went up to 4 last season, I think). They could all get eliminated tonight and I wouldn't bat an eyelash.

So which one should go tonight? I wouldn't mind seeing Waltrip go vroom-vroom.

I liked it better last season with only one show a week. I didn't realize we were back to 2 now?

I think this is the last week we have 2 shows ... it's supposed to go back to once a week when the Tuesday fall sitcoms start next week.

I don't usually watch this show, but I just love Alfonso Ribeiro so I have to check out some of this season.

BTW, Alfonso is known for more than the 'Carlton' dance. He was the kid in the red jacket in the Michael Jackson 'Pepsi Generation' commercial.

I tried to link it in, but it didn't work. Linky - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=po0jY4WvCIc

Not only is he an amazing dancer, he has a beautiful singing voice.

Anyway, haven't heard of half of these people as usual but I'll root for Alfonso. Although - Lea Thompson is certainly no slouch! She's making it happen.

Allison Holker and the kid were AMAAAAAZING in the Chandelier number. Best dance I've seen on TV in a while. They didn't say who choreographed it does anyone know? I am assuming Holker did.

Really?? I thought it was horrible and fast forwarded thru it after 20 seconds or so of watching all the jerky movements. Not my cup of tea.
