It's here! The much-hyped "switch-up" on Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars finally took place Monday night, with everybody switching partners for a week and forming new pairs based on viewer votes. Plus, Julianne "Cleavage" Hough returned to the ballroom (in an eye-popping dress) as a guest judge. How did it turn out? Eh ... a mixed bag.
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.'"

I'm still on a high from Monday. This week was so special. I feel very grateful. The whole theme of Monday night was gratitude. Whenever Amy gets nervous or uptight, she starts letting her that affect her, and she really wanted the dance to be perfect. I said to her backstage, "You can't put that much pressure to make it perfect because ...

This week, several How I Met Your Mother fans were outraged over the series finale, so one viewer decided to give it a more palatable alternate ending. Hulu celebrated April Fool's Day by launching the spin-off series "In the Kitchen with Hannibal," and CollegeHumor unveiled a somewhat misinformed Game of Thrones catch-up video. Plus, Piers Morgan signed off of his CNN show for good, and Samuel L. Jackson gave a Boy Meets World-themed slam poetry performance. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:

And kids, that's how How I Met Your Mother went out on a high note.
HIMYM's divisive series finale on Monday drew 12.9 million viewers a 5.3 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic to hit series highs. The show was up almost two full points ...
It's Most Memorable Year of Your Life night on Dancing with the Stars, so we all know what that means: lots of tears and — fingers crossed! — a Full House reunion. (Let us also not forget that this episode last season bestowed upon us this amazing gif courtesy of Elizabeth Berkeley.) Also, "longtime viewer, first-time judge" Robin Roberts is the special guest for the evening.
Absent from the ballroom this week are Emma Slater and Billy Dee Williams, for reasons to be divulged later in the broadcast. Suspense! (Sigh, poor Emma.)
On to the dances!

"Love doesn't make sense," hopeless romantic Ted told almost-runaway bride Robin last week in the penultimate episode of CBS's long-running romcom How I Met Your Mother. That episode ended, as we knew it would, with Robin and Barney tying the knot, because as Ted concluded in his Speech That Sums The Series Up: "Love is the best thing we do." True words, but even truer were these words: "I won't lie, that was a long weekend."

I'm super proud of Amy and super happy with our swing. We had a little mistake. My jacket got in the way. I put my arm behind my back and she's supposed to grab my hand, but my hand went inside my jacket, so she couldn't grab my hand. It was no big deal. I thought she did great because right before we went on stage, her foot came loose! Because the floor is sticky, it was causing friction and it was coming undone. She needed a wrench to tighten it up, so I went to a lighting guy and he pulled out a Swiss army knife and she just sat on the ...
