Dancing With the Stars Week 4 Recap: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

The CW’s Charmed reboot wasn’t the only series summoning the Power of Three this week.

Dancing With the Stars also showed its appreciation for trios on Monday night, when each Season 27 couple was joined by a third dancer for their routines.

Of course, not all trio dances were created equal on the Week 4 broadcast. Though most duos were joined by DWTS alumni who fared well in their seasons, one couple had the enormous advantage of adding a professional dancer to their team (hi, Maddie Ziegler!), and another had the disadvantage of adding… a Bachelor villain. Suffice it to say,

‘High School Musical’ Disney Streaming Series: Everything We Know So Far

  • Indiewire
Disney Channel’s new “High School Musical” series, which is being produced for Disney’s new as-yet unnamed streaming service, has a title and a plot. As revealed on Thursday, the 10-episode series will be called “High School Musical: The Musical,” and take a meta, docu-style approach to the franchise.

In “High School Musical: The Musical,” a group of students at fictional East High stage a performance of Disney’s “High School Musical” for their winter theater production. But as they plan the on-stage drama, they create as much drama off-stage.

Per Disney, each episode will include a song from the “High School Musical” trilogy of films, as well as on original song.

Oscar and Golden Globe-nominated screenwriter and former Broadway performer Tim Federle (“Ferdinand”) is executive producer with Oliver Goldstick (“Pretty Little Liars”).

High School Musical” premiered as a Disney Channel musical film in 2006, directed by Kenny Ortega, and

‘Dancing with the Stars’ season 27 cast wish list: Male celebs Luis Fonsi and James Shaw Jr. should vie for the Mirror Ball

ABC recently announced that season 27 of “Dancing with the Stars” will premiere on September 24, but we don’t know yet which celebrities will be selected to compete. Below is a list of male candidates I think “DWTS” should consider inviting to battle for the next Mirror Ball Trophy.

Jason Alexander

Before he was known for his iconic role as George Costanza on the classic series “Seinfeld” Jason Alexander was a Tony Award-winning actor, starring in several Broadway musicals including “Jerome Robbins’ Broadway,” for which he won Best Actor in a Musical. In addition, he has appeared in other TV shows and films like the 1997 version of “Cinderella” starring past “DWTS” alum Brandy, “Pretty Woman,” and the animated series “Duckman.” He’s 58, which would make him the oldest Mirror Ball champ in history. But despite his age, I think Jason’s dance and acting background could make him a serious contender

Could Tonya Harding make the ‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes’ final two — and win! — based on these telling stats?

Could Tonya Harding make the ‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes’ final two — and win! — based on these telling stats?
Tonya Harding would probably tell you herself she’s the underdog in the “Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” final three. No one, not even she, thought she’d get this far. Our odds have her finishing in third, behind Josh Norman and frontrunner Adam Rippon, which would be a very good and respectable placement for someone many thought would and wanted to get the boot in the first episode. But could she actually go even further and claim the Mirrorball trophy? “Dancing” history shows that, more often than not, the final two tends to be a his-and-her battle.

In the show’s previous 25 seasons, 17 final twos have come down to a female and a male celebrity. The longest streak was eight seasons, from Season 5 through 12. Of these 17, the woman prevailed 10 times. While each season is a very specific case, this data isn’t that shocking; female dancers — whether the pro

My 5: ‘BoJack Horseman’ Composer Jesse Novak’s Favorite TV Themes (Exclusive)
Composer, musician and producer Jesse Novak -- yes, he’s related to B.J. from The Office -- understands what goes into an iconic TV theme. As the mind behind BoJack Horseman, The Mindy Project and Superstore, he’s created distinctive music that expands these TV worlds as well as the whimsical title theme for the latter, which is now in its third season on NBC.

A memorable theme, he says, “has its own life. It feels like a character, in a way, and it’s part of the universe. It gives you a feeling that you associate with what you’re watching.”

While he’s worked on a number of recent TV hits, Novak’s most memorable work has to come from the animated Netflix series, which recently returned for a fourth season in September and released a soundtrack of its score and original songs, including much of the music from the show’s celebrated underwater episode

My 5: Corbin Bleu’s Favorite Modern, Holiday Classics (Exclusive)
Only 28 years old, Holiday Inn had been out for nearly 50 years by the time Corbin Bleu was born. But that didn’t stop the former High School Musical star and Dancing With the Stars contestant from stepping into the role made famous by Fred Astaire in Broadway’s musical adaptation of the film.

In fact, Bleu brought a modern flair to the character of Ted Hanover, a professional dancer who loses his partner to an oil tycoon and later sets his sights on friend Jim Hardy’s holidays-only hotel performer and love interest, Linda Mason. In one particular number from the Broadway show, “Let's Say It With Firecrackers,” Bleu performs a solo tap dance with the accompaniment of firecrackers with so much pizazz and style that even Astaire would have been impressed.

“We were really giving a new birth to the new number,” Bleu tells Et about working with choreographer Denis Jones to morph it for his body
