ABC is premiering pretty much all of its new and returning shows this week. With that in mind, the network has produced a series of videos highlighting the programs coming on each night. They start, naturally, with Monday, September 24 and the season premieres of Castle and Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars.
WARNING: This video contains a few big Castle season 5 spoilers. You might want to watch out for those.
Check out the ABC Monday video here:
Tom Bergeron of Dancing with the Stars
and America's Funniest Home Videos
fame is the host of these videos. It's therefore fitting that the first show in the video (and the first ABC premiere) is Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars
This is season 15 of the popular dancing program, but they're not calling it that. Why would they with 13 all-star celebrities returning to dance. That has to be publicized as much as possible, after all.
The video segment for Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars
features short interviews with several members of the new cast. They seem to focus a lot on sparkles and sequins and other such shiny things. Having seen the costumes typically worn for dancing, that isn't terribly surprising. Those sparkles can be overwhelming at times.
Also, Joey Fatone is threatening to rip off his shirt. No offense to the former teen idol, but he's really not my first choice for shirtlessness this season.Castle
is up next in the video (a show on which Tom Bergeron has guest-starred, because he is everywhere, all of the time).
Since Tom Bergeron totally just mentions it, yes, they did the "horizontal mambo" on Castle
. That will be made clear early on in the season 5 premiere.
Also, this video also shows us the single best (non-romantic) scene of any Castle
episode ever! Alexis is hung over! Beckett is sneaking out the door! Without her bra!
And that's it for ABC's new season on Mondays. You can watch Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars
at 8pm and Castle
at 10pm starting on September 24.(Images and video courtesy of ABC)
