"Dancing With the Stars" cast

The new cast of Dancing With the Stars was announced Monday. Don’t get too excited yet. The list includes — (pausing to regain my composure) — Jerry Springer. No joke, Tubers.

Here’s the complete list of participants joining the talk-show host in some toe-tapping fun:

TUCKER CARLSON – ( MSNBC news anchor and political TV pundit/columnist)
MONIQUE COLEMAN – (Actress, High School Musical)
SARA EVANS – (Country music singer)
WILLA FORD – (Pop singer)
VIVICA A. FOX – (Actress, Kill Bill and Independence Day)
HARRY HAMLIN – (Actor, L.A. Law and husband of Dancing With the Stars alumna Lisa Rinna)
JOE LAWRENCE – (Actor, Blossom)
MARIO LOPEZ – (Actor, Saved by the Bell)
SHANNA MOAKLER – (Actress and reality television star)

I’m not sure what to make of this cast. With hotheaded Carlson and Springer on board, I’m concerned this year’s DWTS may turn into a shout-fest. I’m hoping that doesn’t happen. The fact that this show is civil is the reason I love it. Berating/fighting with contestants isn’t the norm, and if it evolves into that I’ll be tuning out.

The male contestants seem to be in for the toughest competition. We all know that Lopez can shake his booty, as he did regularly as AC Slater on Saved by the Bell. And Lawrence ain’t too shabby either, if you recall. (Remember that he did some dancing during his musical career.) And Rinna has said more than once that her hubby grew up dancing.

Dancing With the Stars premieres Wednesday, September 13 at 8 p.m. EST.
