The eighteenth season of Dancing with the Stars premieres later this month with no shortage of big-name contestants. Among the top billed stars will be Nene Leakes, Drew Carey, Billy Dee Williams The Wonder Years’ Danica McKellar, Australian pop star Cody Simpson, and Full House's Candace Cameron Bure. However, there will be some noticeable changes this season to pull in a younger audience. Rumor is that's the main reason former host Brooke Burke-Charvet has been replaced with Erin Andrews.

New Dancing With The Stars season 18 celebrity cast & pro partners revealed today. Earlier today, on Good Morning America, ABC revealed the all new, celebrity cast for its upcoming "Dancing With The Stars" season 18. One interesting fact is that pro dancer, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, will be returning after quitting the show back in 2012 to pursue other opportunities. I guess that didn't work out too well for him,lol!! Anyways, without any further ado, your new Dancing with the Stars season 18 cast is: The former "Full House" actress ,Candace Cameron Bure, will be paired with pro dancer Mark Ballas. "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star, NeNe Leakes, will be paired with Tony Dovolani. Former "The Wonder Years" star, Danica McKellar, will be partnered with Valentin Chmerkovskiy. World record breaking swimer, Diana Nyad, will be partnered with Henry Byalikov. Superstar comedian and current "The Price Is Right" host, Drew Carey, will be partnered with Cheryl Burke. »
They haven't danced yet -- except during the cast reveal -- but it's never too early to start ranking the "Dancing with the Stars" Season 18 celebrities. All of them have something that could lead to victory. But only one will win.
Interestingly, the professional partners aren't going to be as much of a factor as usual -- the pros will all switch their celebs partway through the season. Thus, all rankings are based solely on the stars.
Heartwarming hero types
Diana Nyad -- She swam from Cuba to Florida. Nyad is ridiculously charming and cheerful. If her dancing skills match, beating her would just be sad.
Amy Purdy -- Let's just say this: If a double amputee can keep up on the dance floor, there is literally no way she can't win.
Possibly canceling-each-other-out ringers

In 2014, StarVista Entertainment/Time Life -- the premiere marketer of classic TV on DVD -- will release The Wonder Years: The Complete Series to the home entertainment marketplace. The most requested TV series never to be released on DVD, which ran on ABC from 1988-1993, garnered multiple Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe and a Peabody, and was named by TV Guide as one of the "Top 20 Shows of the '80s" will make its very long-awaited debut in the second half of 2014. To best serve the numerous fans of the program, StarVista Entertainment/Time Life has launched WonderYearsDVDs.com, the official site for all updates, exclusive content and pre-orders.
Routinely praised for high-quality TV DVD collections, an archivist's attention to detail, and specially produced bonus programming on releases such as Get Smart, The Carol Burnett Show and China Beach, StarVista Entertainment/ Time Life is planning a deluxe release of the The Wonder Years, »
For years we've been waiting for the classic 1980s series The Wonder Years to be released on DVD, and I'm happy to say that The Wonder Years: The Complete Series will finally be released later this year!
The series starred Fred Savage, Danica McKellar, Dan Lauria, Alley Mills, Jason Hervey, Olivia d’Abo, Josh Saviano, and Daniel Stern. The reason we've had to wait so long is because of some rights issues involving the music in the series.
Jeffrey Peisch, senior VP of entertainment programming and marketing for StarVista Entertainment/Time Life had this to say in a statement,
“The Wonder Years has long been the most requested TV show yet to be released on DVD, and we’re thrilled to have the incredible opportunity to bring this iconic show to its many fans. As we’ve done with many other classic TV shows, the series will be treated »

Well, here’s some unexpected and tremendous news: The Wonder Years, the ’80s-’90s Fred Savage series about growing up in the ’60s-’70s, is coming to DVD in late 2014 featuring “virtually every song” from its immense soundtrack. That is quite a feat. The DVDs will include tracks from The Beatles, Van Morrison, Smokey Robinson, Bob Dylan, and Joni Mitchell, and thank God, because this show is not the same without “The Circle Game” playing over footage of the Arnold family’s home movies. Netflix made the series available for viewing without any of the show’s big tunes (even the Joe Cocker opener of “With a Little Help from My Friends” was altered), so this is a particularly huge revelation.
I’ve always been shocked by how much this show resonates with me. It’s a show about an adolescent heterosexual everyman, but Kevin Arnold’s experiences still felt specific, »
