Kathy Griffin signs on to host ABC's new dance show

Kathy Griffin will host ABC’s new show Let’s Dance, in which celebrity contestants will reenact famous routines. It will premiere at 9:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 23, after the Dancing With the Stars performance finale. The five-episode run will allow three viewers’ choices and three judges’ choices to advance to the final performances, from which the voting public will pick the winner.

    More left footed “celebrities” trying to channel their inner dance star – so reenact this – the Kevin Bacon solo dance sequence from Footloose – snark

    • Carole

      so which star will be doing the Flashdance sequence with the bucket of water – would love to see that – they gotta include that one…

  • Molly

    I like Kathy but I am getting sick of dancing shows.

    • Sally in Chicago

      Me too. Maybe it’s a test, because they only have five. Let’s hope this show dies a quick death.

  • Laura

    Considering the people on DWTS, I’m assuming “celebrity” is used EXTREMELY loosely for this new show…

    • David

      I was thinking the EXACT same thing Laura :)

  • Katja

    Ugh, too much, ABC! I love DWTS, but two seasons a year of that is already a lot to take. I know this thing is only 5 episodes, but it still annoys me that they want to build upon the success of DWTS by finding a way to make almost the same show again with just a very small twist. Can’t they come up with an entirely new idea for a show so that it feels fresher and less like DWTS is just dragging on longer?

  • vicky

    You lost me at Kathy Griffin

    • Anna

      Me too, and I’d been looking forward to this until I heard about her.

    • Sara

      No way, she’s the only reason I’d tune in to this show.

      • gigi

        Me too!!

  • swthompson

    this is based on a show that has been successful in other countries– and I’d rather ABC give it a go than anyone else.

  • talkin’

    Naw, not liking the sound of this

  • Maureen

    ANOTHER dance show?! Geez! >_<

  • SG

    NOT a good idea. And Kathy is jumping the shark.

    • Jenn67

      You have to know that Kathy LIVES for “jumping the shark.” It’s what she strives to do!

  • DW

    I love Kathy Griffin, but not enough to watch “celebrities” attempt to dance.

    • dmblb

      I’m with you there. And how will Kathy be? If she rips into the celebrities real time, they’ll get upset. (And probably their fans.) If she doesn’t, why have Kathy host the show?

    • Lisa

      I’m with you. Love love love Kathy but this does not sound compelling.

    • Michael

      Well, 15-20 million people watch “celebrities” attempting to dance every week. I’d watch Kathy take a dump as even that mundane event would probably be hilarious.

  • Adam

    you had me at Kathy Griffin!

    • Christie

      nope..that is where you lost me. can’t stand KG.

  • frank


  • Clara

    “Famous routines”? As in, Gene Kelley singing in the rain, or Astaire and Rogers in heaven? Or as in, “that solo from season 2 of SYTYCD?”

    • Mark

      famous routines like “The Thriller” – natch

  • Mel

    At least it is only 5 episodes. If they were going to make this a regular thing, I might have barfed.

    • Mark

      might still barf – stuffing celebrity folks into dance costumes – ugh

  • Chichi

    Oh, great! More people that I’ll have to Google.

    • Mark

      assuming the celebrity is google-able
