Samantha Harris suggests she may return to host Dancing with the Stars again

We haven’t even begun to experience the magic that will be a full season of Dancing with the Stars without co-host Samantha Harris, and she’s already threatening to return to the show.

Brooke Burke has been hired to replace her, and Samantha told TV Guide that “I think Brooke is a sweetheart, and I’m excited for her to have this opportunity.”

But then she suggested that this is perhaps just a one-season break for her: “Who knows what the future is for [me and] Dancing With the Stars. But for Season 10 I wanted to focus on The Insider,” she said.

And we will focus on your absence.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
