DANCING WITH THE STARS

ABC Monday, Tuesday, at 800 ET

 PTC Summary:

Production Companies: BBC Worldwide
Producers: Conrad Green
Creators: BBC Entertainment

Now in its ninth season, Dancing with the Stars pairs celebrities with professional dancers in a weekly dance competition. Several pairs compete before a panel of judges, with a different pair being voted off the program each week. Home viewers can also cast votes by phone or Internet. Celebrity dancers this season include football legend Michael Irvin and entertainer Donny Osmond.

In the past, the program was given a green light in all categories. While the show is still free of violence, this season some harsh language like “ass,” “damn,” and “hell” has been heard. The contestants tend to spice the dances up with sex appeal, suggestive dance movements and skimpy female outfits that can consist of as little as a bra and short skirt.

Dancing with the Stars is not recommended for viewers under age 10.
