ABC looks to tie-in “Bachelor” and “Dancing”


ABC announced a “special Monday night event” in which “Dancing with the Stars” host Tom Bergeron will announce the new cast of “Dancing with the Stars.” But if you want that information as it happens, you will have to watch for the interstitials during the finale of “The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love,” on Monday, March 1st (8-10 pm ET).

The Spring 2010 season of “Dancing with the Stars” premieres Monday, March 22nd (8-10-pm ET). In week two, all of the couples will return to dance once again. The team with the lowest combined judges’ scores and public votes for both performances will be eliminated from the competition on the first results show, Tuesday, March 30th.

“Dancing with the Stars” is the U.S. version of the international smash hit series, “Strictly Come Dancing.” This version is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions. Conrad Green serves as executive producer and Rob Wade is co-executive producer. Alex Rudzinski directs.
