‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ jumps from Best Comedy Series to Best Children’s Program on the Emmy ballot

“A Series of Unfortunate Events” has made a big move across the Emmy ballot. The Netflix series premiered in 2017, when it competed in comedy series categories. But season two, which aired this spring, has been entered for consideration as a children’s program.

Jenna Johnson is fourth ‘Dancing with the Stars’ pro to go from last to first place
Jenna Johnson started at the bottom and now she’s here. In just her second season as a “Dancing with the Stars” pro, Johnson went from worst — being eliminated first — to best, winning the damn thing with Adam Rippon. She is the fourth pro to take the home the Mirrorball trophy after finishing last in his or her previous season.

The “So You Think You Can Dance” alum had an inauspicious “Dancing” pro debut in Season 23 with “Wizards of Waverly Place” star Jake T. Austin, going home the first week. After sitting out the next two installments, she returned on “Athletes” with Rippon, a match made in heaven that led to a victory on Monday’s finale.

Kym Johnson was the first pro to prevail after going home first her previous season. After winning Season 9 with Donny Osmond, she skipped Season 10 and was first out in Season 11 with David Hasselhoff.
