Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Meryl Davis; Sharna Burgess, Charlie White
Olympic ice dancing gold medalists Charlie White and Meryl Davis found themselves in a strange position when they signed on for Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars: rather than being partners, as they have been on the ice for 17 years, they'd actually be competing against each other. But they don't really see it that way.
"I guess technically speaking, we are competing against each other, but it couldn't feel further from that," Davis tells TVGuide.com. "We really feel like we're in it together."
Check out our full Q&A with White and Davis to get their thoughts on whether they have an unfair advantage in the competition, as well as White's reaction to Len Goodman and Carrie Ann Inaba saying his and Peta Murgatroyd's dance last week wasn't really a rumba.
Erin Andrews is four weeks into her new gig as co-host of Dancing with the Stars, and while her presence in the ballroom has been a breath of fresh air for viewers in Season 18, the transition period has not exactly been bump-free.
Last week, some tabloid reports surfaced, quoting anonymous sources who accused Andrews of "diva" behavior on the set, and speculated that ABC might already be looking to replace her. (Executive producer Conrad Green has vehemently denied that there's any animosity behind the scenes.)
"I've got to be honest. ... It kind of got me worried and scared," Andrews told TVGuide.com last week, noting that she immediately called producers to do damage control. "I just went back and forth with the producers like, 'Are we good here? Please tell me what I need to work on. Please tell me what I need to do. 'And they're like, 'We couldn't be happier.'"
Anna Faris and Allison Janney
On this day most readily associated with the Wearing of the Green, consider a TV industry green with envy at the success of Chuck Lorre's comedy empire on CBS, which renewed all of his current series last week, led by the terrific and tremendously popular The Big Bang Theory (a powerhouse providing a clout that helps explain why the beyond-past-its-prime Two and a Half Men also made the cut). Lorre's two Monday comedies, anchored by strong female performances, are also back next season — and that's especially good news for fans (including me) of the underperforming, underrated Mom, with its sensational mother-daughter tag team of Allison Janney and Anna Faris as Bonnie and Christy, two generations of recovering addicts raising a family against powerful odds.
Dancing with the Stars
Last year, Dancing with the Stars reverted back to a one-night format for its 17th season, and as the reality competition heads into its 18th outing, even more big changes are on the way.
"When you're a show reaching its 18th season and its ninth year, I think you have to keep changing things up every so often just to make sure that the experience doesn't become too familiar," executive producer Conrad Green tells TVGuide.com. "It's spring, so it's time for a spring cleaning."
Check out nine big changes coming to Dancing with the Stars this season:
Drew Carey, Candace Cameron Bure, and Olympic gold medalists Charlie Whiteand Meryl Davis are among the celebrities who are heading to the ballroom for Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars.
Dancing with the Stars has certainly had plenty of shakeups leading up to Season 18, but at least one familiar face will be back in the ballroom — and we're not talking about new co-host Erin Andrews.
Professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy (who was Andrews' partner in Season 11) will return to the show after a two-season hiatus, a source close to the show has confirmed.
Dancing with the Stars has already found a replacement for Brooke Burke-Charvet.
Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews will take over co-hosting duties on the reality dance competition alongside Tom Bergeron, People reports.
Richard Sherman, Erin Andrews
The Seattle Seahawks will face the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl next month, but thanks to Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman's antics after the NFC Championship game Sunday, no one is talking about the game, at least for now.

Erin Andrews, 50 Cent
NASCAR drivers weren't the only ones looking to score at the Daytona 500 Sunday.
As Fox Sports' Erin Andrews was making her way through the crowd looking for Danica Patrick, rapper 50 Cent approached her and went in for a kiss — making for a very uncomfortable moment when she dodged his advances on camera.
