Dancing with the Stars Recap: Season 19, Episode 1

The 19th season of Dancing with the Who Are These People Stars kicked off in spectacular fashion Monday night, with a cast that proves the show is stretching further and further in its interpretation of the term "celebrity." It's clear from the get-go that new judge Julianne Hough is thrilled to be back in the ballroom -- and her boobs seem pretty excited too. (Is this TV-14?) With 13 routines to cram into two hours, Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews waste no time in getting the performances underway — and we won't either:

Switched at Birth Exclusive Video: Who's Doing a Sexy Salsa in the Dance Episode?

With a cast that features a High School Musical alum and two Dancing with the Stars veterans, it was only a matter of time before Switched at Birth did a dance-themed episode.

On Monday's installment (8/7c, ABC Family), dance scenes fill every act as Daphne (Katie LeClerc) and Bay (Vanessa Marano) both wonder about their futures. From Lea Thompson's Broadway act and Gilles Marini and Marlee Matlin's Waltz to LeClerc's salsa dance with RJ Mitte and David Casteneda, almost every style is covered.

Switched at Birth Star: Daphne can find something to love in both Campbell and Jorge

"[My] dance is especially fun because of the love triangle," LeClerc recently told us. "I'm a pretty good dancer, I learn choreography pretty easily, and I took tap in college. But Vanessa Marano is the most adorable thing in the world -- she has no rhythm!"

Switched at Birth Star: Daphne Can Find Something to Love in Both Campbell and Jorge

Switched at Birth's Daphne is caught in a love triangle.

Despite how often Daphne (Katie LeClerc) is surrounded by boy drama, it seems that she may have found herself two pretty great guys. In last week's episode, Daphne's colleague at the clinic, Campbell (RJ Mitte), expressed his feelings for her and later broke up with his girlfriend. Meanwhile, Daphne and her boss Jorge (David Castaneda) shared a passionate kiss at the end of the episode, leaving her conflicted about who, if either, she should choose.

Keck's Exclusives First Look: CSI Goes Back to the Future

Though they costarred in 1989's Back to the Future Part II and 1990's Part III, Elisabeth Shue (who played Marty McFly's girlfriend, Jennifer) and Lea Thompson (who played Marty's mom, Lorraine) appeared together in only one scene. So it came as a rare treat for them to reunite for a November episode of Shue's CSI, in which Thompson guest stars as an investigator who is looking into a misconduct claim against Greg (Eric Szmanda). "We both had to sign a bunch of Back to the Future Part II posters for the crew," Thompson says. "A lot of people, including Eric, were totally geeking out."
