15 April 2014 1:24 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Meryl Davis has been a favorite of judges throughout season 18 of "Dancing With the Stars," but during Monday's "Disney Night" her rival James Maslow threw down the gauntlet, achieving a feat even Davis hasn't accomplished: a perfect score. -Break- 'DWTS': Past Winners (Seasons 1-17) Maslow received perfect 10s from all four "DWTS" judges – regular experts Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli, as well as guest judge and season nine champ Donny Osmond – for a total of 40 out of 40.

James Maslow "Overwhelmed" by Perfect Dancing With the Stars Score, but Insists "We're Not Safe!"

14 April 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Disney Night provided a happy ending for James Maslow! The Big Time Rush hunk had a fairy tale outing on Dancing With the Stars' Monday night show, scoring Season 18's first perfect score with his contemporary dance to "Let It Go" from Frozen with his partner, Peta Murgatroyd. In fact, their routine was so impressive, notoriously icy head judge Len Goodman gushed that their dance "would melt the coldest heart...even mine!" You'd think melting Len's heart and receiving 40 out of 40 points from the four judges (including guest judge Donny Osmond) would be a confidence-booster, but James exclusively told E! News after Monday's show that he and Peta are "not safe at any time." »

'Dancing with the Stars' preview: Redemption for Charlie White? Curtains for Candace Cameron?

13 April 2014 5:14 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Last week's partner switch on "Dancing With the Stars" shook up more than just the contestants and pro dancers. It also dramatically shifted the leaderboard, with some stars rising – Drew Carey, NeNe Leakes – and others losing ground – Charlie White, Candace Cameron Bure. What will happen when the stars resume their usual partnerships tonight? -Break- 'DWTS' Poll: Was partner switch-up a success or failure? Figure skater White might be looking for redemption after judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Len Goodman docked him points for his nontraditional take on the rumba. The Olympic champion emerged as the "DWTS" frontrunner after spending the first two weeks at the top of the standings, but he hasn't led the judges' scores since then. Now he's an underdog: users currently rank him fifth to win the season with 12/1 odds. But for Cameron Bure, tonight is all about survival. Last week& »

DWTS: Charlie White and Meryl Davis Say They're "In It Together"

13 April 2014 4:29 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Olympic ice dancing gold medalists Charlie White and Meryl Davis found themselves in a strange position when they signed on for Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars: rather than being partners, as they have been on the ice for 17 years, they'd actually be competing against each other. But they don't really see it that way.

"I guess technically speaking, we are competing against each other, but it couldn't feel further from that," Davis tells "We really feel like we're in it together."

Check out our full Q&A with White and Davis to get their thoughts on whether they have an unfair advantage in the competition, as well as White's reaction to Len Goodman and Carrie Ann Inaba saying his and Peta Murgatroyd's dance last week wasn't really a rumba.

'Dancing with the Stars' showdown: Charlie White vs. judges

9 April 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Are the "Dancing With the Stars" judges right about Olympic gold medalist Charlie White's controversial routines, or are they holding him to an unfairly high standard? -Break- 'DWTS' recap: Leaderboard shake-up in switch-up week On Monday night, Carrie Ann Inaba and Len Goodman were displeased that his rumba with switched-up partner Peta Murgatroyd wasn't traditional enough. Inaba gave them a 7 and Goodman gave them an 8, while Bruno Tonioli and guest judge Julianne Hough gave him 9s. "This side of the table’s not quite as happy as that side of the table," said Inaba of the judges' split decision. 'DWTS' poll: Was partner switch-up a success or failure? The happy-go-lucky White seems like an unlikely bad boy, but this is the second time he has been docked points for playing fast and loose with proper ballroom form.

'Dancing With the Stars' Switches Up Partners, Judges Make Controversial Comments

8 April 2014 3:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Dancing With the Stars switched things up Monday -- and ruffled some sequins. For the first time in DWTS history, ABC’s dance competition inter-swapped contestants and professional partners for episode four in “The Switch Up” and will combine the scores of weeks three and four with public votes for an elimination in week five. Though the change ignited friendly competition among contestants, critiques made by guest judge and two-time DWTS champion Julianne Hough and fellow judge Len Goodman sparked controversy with viewers and the dancers. Goodman shocked audiences when he told partners Charlie White and Peta Murgatroyd that their

'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Meryl Davis Leads The Pack; No One Is Sent Home

7 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing With the Stars returned on Monday with special guest judge, DWTS alum Julianne Hough, seated between Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli for the dancing competition’s “Switch-Up” week in which no one faced elimination.

Dancing With the Stars Recap

Candace Cameron Bure, now paired up with Tony Dovolani, took on a quickstep. Bure’s experience as an actress definitely allowed her to really play up the character in the routine. However, she’s looked better in past weeks with Mark Ballas. Her poor footwork in the ballroom dance was glaring. Score: 7+7+7+7 = 28

James Maslow, separated from Peta Murgatroyd, danced a tango with Cheryl Burke. Maslow wasn’t set back at all by the switch-up, giving another solid performance in the Latin dance routine in which he played a suitor to Burke’s queen. All of the judges – save Goodman – gave him a 9. Score: 9+8+9+9=35

DWTS's Partner Change-Up Week: Who Was Most Improved?

7 April 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It was partner switch-up week on Monday's Dancing with the Stars, and the unique evening produced mixed feelings from judges. While some usually lower-scoring contestants rose to the top, a couple of the higher-ranking performers received less than impressive marks during a week that featured Julianne Hough as a guest judge. The night kicked off with a 28-points-out-of-40 quickstep by Candace Cameron Bure and Tony Dovolani that had Hough complaining of body contact that was "a little too gapped." Judge Bruno Tonioli said a punk rock-dressed Bure needed to "sort out this top line." James Maslow and Cheryl Burke wowed »

'Dancing with the Stars': Injury, tears, and perfect 10s in dramatic third week of competition

31 March 2014 8:02 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Our users predicted the elimination of actor Billy Dee Williams this week on "Dancing With the Stars," but not like this. The 76-year-old star announced he was withdrawing from the competition due to chronic back problems and therefore wasn't able to perform. -Break- But the show must go on, and on it went with what the judges described as one of the most competitive nights in the show's history. How strong were the week-three performances? A contestant needed almost straight 8s just to stay out of last place. Drew Carey was the unlucky contestant who ended up at the bottom of the judges' standings, despite receiving 8s from Bruno Tonioli and guest judge Robin Roberts from "Good Morning America." Carrie Ann Inaba thought his waltz lacked the happy-go-lucky energy of his previous dances and gave him a 7, as did Len Goodman, for a total of 30 out of 40. Despite also receiving respectable marks from judges, »

Dancing with the Stars: Spring 2014 Ratings

25 March 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

In the fall, ABC cut Dancing with the Stars to just one broadcast a week. The ratings for that cycle were the show's lowest in its 17 seasons on the air. Though the show is highly unlikely to be cancelled, this trend is not positive. Will the ratings continue to fall? Stay tuned.

Tom Bergeron is joined by Erin Andrews as a co-host with Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba and Len Goodman returning as judges. This time around, the contestants are Sean Avery, Candace Cameron Bure, Drew Carey, Meryl Davis, NeNe Leakes, James Maslow, Danica McKellar, Diana Nyad, Amy Purdy, Cody Simpson, Charlie White, and Billy Dee Williams.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as »

'Vikings' renewed for Season 3; 'Shameless' switches to comedy for Emmys

25 March 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

TV news and notes:

- History has picked up Season 3 of "Vikings," ordering 10 episodes for 2015. The popular historical drama is currently four episodes into its second season. Executive VP of History Dirk Hoogstra says in a statement, "'Vikings' has taken viewers by storm and has established itself as one of the most compelling, visually stunning dramas on television. With its large, passionate and loyal fan base, 'Vikings' has cemented History firmly in the scripted series genre, just as we are the leaders in reality television."

- "Shameless" has decided that it's a comedy, at least for the purposes of the Emmy Awards. The Showtime series has competed as a drama in past seasons, but it's moving to what's perceived as a less crowded comedy field for 2014. The move follows a similar one by Netflix's "Orange Is the New Black," which was a drama entry at this year's Golden Globes but »

24 March 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing with the Stars continued with season 18 Monday night with a surprise double-elimination and the stars taking on their preferred dance styles.

Dancing With The Stars Recap

First up on the dance floor and first to know they were safe was Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke dancing a jive. Drew certainly isn’t a natural in dancing shoes, but his effort is apparent to the judges. Len Goodman was pleased to see that Cheryl challenged her partner with a series of true Jive steps. Score: 21

The next safe couple to dance was Wonder Years’ Danica McKellar and Val Chmerkovskiy. Dancing the samba, the pair pushed the sexy angle to get the judges' attention – and to best rival Candice Cameron Bure. Bruno Tonioli says that she’s “beautiful to look at, but not quite tame yet,” while Carrie Ann Inaba said she “dominated.” Score: 24
