Dancing With The Stars Finds A New Contender… So Why Is She Up For Elimination?! Watch All The Routines & Decide For Yourself!

no title

Laurie may not have this in the bag after all!

While Hillary Clinton debating the former host of Celebrity Apprentice was without a doubt the most-watched program of Monday night, ABC had enough faith in its own reality show contestants to actually air a new episode of Dancing with the Stars.

In fact, DWTS even embraced the first Presidential debate with a "Face-Off" theme of its own — pairing the Top 12 off into six sets, with the winning celeb in each earning immunity for the week!

Recap: Jake T. Austin Sashays Away From Dancing With The Stars

While we'd normally welcome such a game-changing twist… Terra Jolé somehow found herself up for elimination even though she had arguably the best routine of the night!

The Little Women: LA star and partner Sasha Farber were forced to Viennese Waltz against NFL wide receiver Calvin Johnson Jr. and pro Lindsay Arnold – but despite placing 3rd and 1st overall, respectively, only Megatron was declared safe.

We're not too worried about her fate on the show — the dance really was that good — but unlike Terra, Vanilla Ice is actually immune… and he TIED FOR LAST PLACE!!!

Real fair, DWTS.

So, who else is up for elimination on next Monday's episode??

no title

This is amazing!

On Monday, ABC confirmed the upcoming episode of Modern Family will feature the first openly transgender child actor on television!

While transgender actors have starred in shows like Orange Is The New Black and Nashville, those are adult roles, rather than child ones.

But now, 8-year-old Jackson Millarker will play Lily's transgender friend, Tom, on Wednesday night's installment of the popular sitcom, titled "A Stereotypical Day."

The episode's director, Ryan Case, took to Instagram on Monday to post a precious picture with the young actor, and gushed about working with him in the caption, writing:

"This is Jackson Millarker. He's 8 years old, from Atlanta, and just happens to be transgender. He plays Lily's friend Tom in this week's Modern Family and he's wonderful. One of the many reasons I love being a part of this show. ❤️🎬💯"

See the sweet snap (below)!

Michael Strahan Has No Regrets About The Way He Exited Live!… But Is He Still Friends With Kelly Ripa?!

Live! with Kelly and… nope, just Kelly.

It's been a few months since Michael Strahan blew up daytime television by blindsiding Kelly Ripa when he abruptly left Live! after four years on the show.

However, now that he's had some time to reflect on what went down… the Good Morning America newcomer says he actually doesn't feel bad with the way he handled his daytime transition.

Speaking to PEOPLE on Wednesday, the ex-NFL star said:

"The most disappointing thing to me was that I was painted as the bad guy, because I value the way I carry myself. I don't want people to see me as 'Oh, he just ran out, just left them there.' That's just not true."

That definitely seemed like the case in April, when Strahan suddenly announced he would be leaving Live! for a full time gig over at GMA — a move that Ripa only learned about at the very last minute, causing the long-time host to take some time off.

Luckily, Michael insists he has "no regrets" about how his sudden departure, explaining that they all work for the ABC "team," and his football mentality is to play

The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards Were The Least Watched In TV History! Despite All THESE Great Moments…

Filed under: TV NewsAwardzJimmy KimmelEmmys

no title

Must have had a bad reception…

The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards were a chance for Hollywood to celebrate the best that television has to offer — except the rest of the country's invitations apparently got lost in the mail.

That's because despite churning out some must-see moments, Jimmy Kimmel wasn't quite able to attract many viewers to tune in on Sunday.

Related: The Best Twitter Reactions To The 2016 Emmy Awards

In fact, ABC's 2016 broadcast was actually the least watched Emmys… EVER!!!

According to Nielsen, only 11.3 million viewers watched Veep and Game of Thrones win big at El Lay's Microsoft Theater over the weekend — down from 2015's 11.87 million.

Anything over 10 million is still impressive in today's cable-cutting world, but considering 1990's ceremony managed to pull in 12.3 million viewers… that should give you an idea of the current state of television.

We just don't get how anyone would voluntarily want to skip iconic moments, such as…

Cheryl Burke Defends Ryan Lochte After Dancing With The Stars Protest: 'No One Deserves That'

no title

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming…

Ryan Lochte was already the one to watch ahead of the Dancing with the Stars premiere on Monday night — and that was BEFORE he was protested on LIVE TV!

As you've surely seen by now, the defamed Olympic champ saw the effects of his Rio lie first-hand when two men stormed the stage wearing anti-Lochte t-shirts during his judging.

We've already heard what host Tom Bergeron and pro Derek Hough had to say about the violent incident, but now it's Ryan's partner's turn to speak up!

Cheryl Burke made her return to the DWTS stage specifically to give the swimmer some added star power, so it makes sense that she'd be taking the boycott to heart.

In fact, the two-time Mirrorball Trophy champ defended the Gold medalist against "bullying" in an Instagram post on Tuesday, saying:

Video Surfaces Of Ryan Lochte Being Attacked On Dancing With The Stars… And It's Much Scarier Than We Originally Thought!

no title

Dancing is NOT a contact sport.

Ryan Lochte is far from being the most loved athlete in America right now… but we may have been underestimating just how hated he really is.

As you've probably heard, the Olympic swimmer did his best to impress during Monday night's premiere of Dancing with the Stars — but his hard work was completely overshadowed by two protesters who rushed the stage!

Recap: Amber Rose, Laurie Hernandez, & MORE From The DWTS 23 Premiere

While Carrie Ann Inaba was attempting to give her judge's critique to Ryan and pro partner Cheryl Burke during the 2-hour episode, two men wearing anti-Lochte t-shirts were apprehended off-camera.

However, hours later on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Tom Bergeron actually shared found footage of the take down — and those men were straight-up TACKLED by security guards!

Rightfully so, of course… but this video is much more violent than we ever expect to see from ABC!!

Ch-ch-check out GMA's behind-the-scenes look at the shocking DWTS moment (below)!!!

52 talented women battled it out on the Miss America stage Sunday night, but only one lucky lady could walk away with the crown.

Luckily, The Bachelorette's Chris Harrison and Sage Steele were there to keep the festivities moving, which — as always — included the swimsuit, evening gown, talent, and interview rounds of the competition.
