After ABC confirmed next season's all-stars outing of Dancing with the Stars, Tom Bergeron revealed that it will feature past champions, fan favorites and controversial cast members, which kind of took the wind out of sails. Do we really want to see Kate Gosselin again? No. Since season-planning is still in a nascent stage, we want to offer our two cents on how we think the season should be. Here are our five wishes for all-stars:
Family Feud has been renewed through 2015, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The game show...
Steve Harvey is hoping his comedy chops will be a recipe for success as he takes over hosting duties on Family Feud.
"I bet you there's not a funnier game show on TV," Harvey told The Associated Press. "We've done some pretty incredible stuff so far."
Harvey, who makes his debut as host on Monday, has already taped 100 episodes, according to the AP. The gig will not interfere with his comedy tour and syndicated radio show.

All hands on deck! A week of new SpongeBob episodes kicks off tonight with the special SpongeBob SquarePants: The Clash of Triton (8/7c on Nickelodeon).

Jeers to CBS for jumping on and falling off the celeb-competition bandwagon with Secret Talents of the Stars. The Eye network's pathetic entry is hosted by John O'Hurley, but this feels more akin to his work on Family Feud than Dancing with the Stars (not to mention Seinfeld). He introduces contestants like Olympic skater-turned-contortionist Sasha Cohen, who again fails to match the gold-medal standard set by her predecessor, Dancing fave Kristi Yamaguchi. The motley panel of judges features R&B singer Brian McKnight, the unsinkable-until-now Debbie Reynolds and producer/designated hater Gavin Polone (who made a tasteless Brokeback Mountain joke about gay Star Trek vet George Takei that would've made Simon Cowell wince even more than Sulu's "singing"). Note to CBS: Some things should be kept secret.For another take on Secret Talents of the Stars, read the Roush Dispatch.
