Our top moments of the week:

15. Tackiest Move:
After Andy Dick's earnestly charming debut dance on Dancing with the Stars, Brooke Burke-Charvet bursts the positive-energy bubble in the room by abruptly and awkwardly asking Dick about being a recovering addict. "Is there a part of you that's concerned, considering that you're a recovering addict, of the pressure that the show puts on everyone?" she asks.

First Look: Good Morning America Anchors Help Phineas and Ferb Celebrate Platypus Day

Disney Channel is launching a month-long Phineas and Ferb event leading up to its annual National Platypus Day celebration on Saturday, March 2 — in honor of the show's resident platypus, Perry.

This year, they've enlisted some unusual help: Good Morning America anchors George Stephanopoulos, Josh Elliott, Lara Spencer and Sam Champion can be seen in one spot dancing along to "O.W.C.A." (a riff, of course, on the Village People's "Y.M.C.A."). Phineas and Ferb fans know that "O.W.C.A." stands for Organization Without a Cool Acronym, the evil-fighting group where Perry the Platypus serves as his alterego Agent P.

The "O.W.C.A" song premieres on Radio Disney on Friday, the same day Disney Channel introduces the music video (which also includes a wide variety of Disney Channel stars dancing along).

The flagship episode ("Sidetracked") for this year's Phineas and Ferb "Platypus Day" will air Friday, March 1 at 9/8c. In the episode, Agent P teams up with his former partner, the human agent Lyla (voice of The Daily Show's Samantha Bee) to stop a hijacked train. On March 2, Disney Channel will air multiple episodes, while boy tween-centric Disney XD will run a five-hour marathon, starting with the new episode "Primal Perry," starting at 8 a.m./7c.
