Returning Reality, 8-10PM, ABC

Posted on

Wow — 200 episodes already? Yep, and to celebrate, in week 7 DWTS will invite old contestants back to challenge the latest round of celebrity hoofers — including Bristol Palin, Jennifer Grey, Florence Henderson, Michael Bolton, and David Hasselhoff — with ex-contestants joining the judges’ panel. Also in season 11: an acoustic night, in which the audience will sit on the stage as the dancers perform in a small, dimly lit space. (Just don’t put Baby in a corner!) Plus, exec producer Conrad Green plans to rock out: ”We’ll redesign the set, bring in a big rock act, and make everyone dance to rock songs.”
