Meet Your New 'Dancing with the Stars' Co-Host

I have seen Dancing with the Stars exactly once, for a review I wrote of the second season finale several years ago. Not my thing. But the show’s new co-host most definitely is, as the ABC reality competition has sacked Brooke Burke-Charvet in a move she apparently didn’t see coming, and replaced her with Erin Andrews.

That’s good casting.

Nevermind that judge shake-ups have rarely improve the ratings, and Dancing with the Stars has been sinking year over year for a while now. Erin Andrews, the only sideline reporter in the NFL worth a damn, is almost reason enough to watch, like Ben Folds is almost reason enough to watch The Sing-Off.

Forgive the stereotyping, but she reminds me of that woman in every high school who is both Prom Queen and an honor graduate, who joins a sorority and actually engages in the charitable work, and who is driven, smart, attractive, and a nice person. I have a weakness for the Erin Andrews of the world, who always end up with the Ken dolls, but who is still still nice to the slugs.

She’s good folk.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
