2014 Olympic gold medal skaters Meryl Davis and Charlie White, “Real Housewife” NeNe Leakes, beloved late ’80s-early ’90s TV stars — including Danica McKellar from “The Wonder Years” and Candace Cameron Bure from “Full House” — and the smoothest cat from Cloud City, Lando Calrissian himself, Mr. Billy Dee Williams, are among the dozen competitors on the 18th cycle of the ballroom dance reality contest. In addition to the fresh slate of celebrities, former contestant and Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews steps into Brooke Burke-Charvet’s hosting shoes alongside the returning Tom Bergeron. In a new twist called “The Switch Up,” viewers will be able to decide swaps between celebrities and their pro dance partners mid-competition.

Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key of Comedy Central’s dependably hilarious “Key & Peele” sit down with host David Steinberg to parse the funny, discussing everything from their Second City past to what it’s like having President Obama as a fan. Hopefully, they’ll also chat about the Neesons. Garry Marshall also stops by to talk about his lengthy TV career, including the beloved sitcoms “Happy Days” and “Laverne & Shirley.”
