Dancing with the stars also premieres this week and is moved from Monday to Tuesday. It’s also back on ABC (as well as Disney+), which is good news for fans who were rightfully upset when the network moved it exclusively to Disney+ last fall. Tyra Banks has left the series; Alfonso Ribeiro will take over the moderation duties alongside former candidate/judge Julianne Hough.
The biggest change, of course, will be the absence of head judge Len Goodman, who passed away earlier this spring. In an exclusive interview with USA today, Executive producer Conrad Green told the publication that the Mirrorball trophy will be renamed in Len’s honor, noting that Tuesday’s dedication will be “a really moving moment.” Len loves this show and will always be there looking down on us.

This week, Hallmark’s latest film shouldn’t be forgotten: A real Venice romance, which was filmed in the legendary Italian city. Sign me up. With that in mind, see you back here next week as we welcome October and all the Halloween programming you can’t get enough of.
