Olympics: Women's Boxing Set for Knockout Debut

After fighting for years to get into the Olympics, female boxers will at last enter the ring at the London Games.

NBC analyst Laila Ali, who followed father Muhammad Ali, a 1960 gold medalist, into pro boxing, says she never competed as an amateur because women couldn't aspire to the Olympics. "I'm just happy to see it now," she says. "Eventually it'll just keep growing."read more

Backstage at Dancing with the Stars: Aches, Pains and Pride

There's something delicious about a show where nerves are on end and no one is a sure thing. "I have no idea who's going to win this," says dance pro Jonathan Roberts, who stopped by to chat just moments before this Monday night's competition began. He was seated in the audience with his former celebrity partner, Heather Mills. All 11 competing couples will return tomorrow night to dance in the grand finale. But for now, they were just there to watch the toughest, most important dances of the season alongside a number of famous former contestants: Harry Hamlin, Jerry Springer, and Mario Lopez, seated with his girlfriend and f read more

Backstage at Dancing with the Stars: Len Judges the Remaining Three Couples

We started with 11 couples. Now there are three. And the head judge is jazzed about the finals. "It's going to be magic," Len Goodman said immediately after Tuesday night's results show, which sent Ian Ziering packing. Ziering gave the competition everything he had and wanted to stay in the worst way. But, says Ziering, "It really wasn't so unexpected. There are better dancers out there." Goodman agrees. It may have been a tight, four-way race to the finish, but Goodman thinks the right three couples made it into the finals. "As much as I loved Ian's performances last night, I think it was justified that he was the one sent home as the weakest dancer. If he had been in Season 1, 2 or 3, he would've been in the finals. But he's come up against three incredible couples." Goodman has presided over four seasons of read more

It was a jaw-dropping semifinal, the best in the four-season history of ABC's Dancing with the Stars. Apolo Anton Ohno, Laila Ali, Joey Fatone and Ian Ziering on Monday night each pulled off grand finale-quality dances — and earned multiple "10s" from the judges — like it was no big deal to polish two entirely different routines. Plus, the routines themselves were longer: a minute and 15 seconds last week, one minute and 30 seconds this week.  The dances' length is not a question of keeping head judge read more
