ABC's reality darling Dancing with the Stars is readying for its 14th season, but the question is: Will viewers still flock to the televised dance floor? The 12-person lineup was announced yesterday, with the show's premiere set for March 19th. Although it had the typical assortment of TV actors and personalities, singers and sports stars, the picks left many underwhelmed in comparison to previous seasons. Highlights of the cast include Grammy-Award-winning singer Gladys Knight, soap star Jack Wagner, Jaleel White (better known as Urkel from Family Matters), Extra TV host Maria Menounos, The View co-host Sherri Shepherd, Melissa Gilbert (from Little House on the Prairie), famed Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver and tennis legend Martina Navratilova.
The show's executive producer, Conrad Green, told USA Today the choice was purposeful: "This season, we particularly wanted to go for a likable cast, people that you feel affectionate toward. The core of our show is about finding people you can root for and wanting them to triumph."
Jimmy Kimmel wasted no time in taking the cast to task last night, making humorous digs about the lineup. What do you think? Are you excited for the new season?
