The ABC Television Network announces the return of hit series �Dancing with the Stars� with a two-hour premiere on Monday, March 19 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET). To offer viewers two weeks to see the performers in action before voting, the first results show will air on week two.

Beginning April 2, �Dancing with the Stars� will air Mondays from 8:00-9:30 p.m, and �Dancing with the Stars the Results Show� on Tuesdays from 9:00-10:00 p.m.

�The great thing about this air schedule is that fans won't have to choose between the two reality hits this Spring,� said Stephen McPherson, president, ABC Entertainment.

The new cast will be announced on �Good Morning America� closer to premiere.

Growing its audience among viewers and young adults each season since its debut in Summer 2005, ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" has established itself as one of television's most popular series.

It's the No. 1 unscripted series with high-income young adults. On its third season finale during the 2006 November Sweep (11/15/06), "Dancing with the Stars" achieved the series' most-watched telecast ever, with an average audience of 27.7 million viewers.

�Dancing with the Stars� is the U.S. version of the international smash hit series, �Strictly Come Dancing.� This version is produced in America by BBC Worldwide. Conrad Green and Richard Hopkins are executive producers and Izzie Pick is co-executive producer. Rob Wade and Matilda Zoltowski are supervising producers. Alex Rudzinski directs.
