DANCING WITH THE STARS: Season 24 started off with a load of contenders this time around, giving the competition a much needed boost with no easy front runner to pick from right off the bat, although Olympian Simone Biles and partner Sasha Farber eked by in first. Footballer Rashad Jennings & Emma Slater narrowly missed being the leaders of the night by one point, while three other contestants tied for third place. Dancer, yes dancer, Heather Morris & Maks Chmerkovskiy, retired Cubs catcher David Ross & Lindsey Arnold and Olympian Nancy Kerrigan & Artem Chigvintsev all ended the night with a promising 28 points. Funnyman and SNL alum Chris Kattan tanked his first dance landing behind even, as DWTS listed her, pop culture icon Charo with just 17 points. Still, they will all be back for next week. Stay tuned!
