ABC has announced Let's Dance, a new comedic reality competition that will feature celebrities attempting to re-create memorable dance routines, will premiere live on Monday, November 23 at 9:30PM ET/PT.
Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List star Kathy Griffin will host the new reality series, which will debut immediately following Dancing with the Stars ninth-season performance finale.
Let's Dance's first three episodes will each feature a different group of celebrities rehearsing and performing single or group performances for a celebrity judging panel, after which home viewers will get to vote for their favorite.
Two performances from the first three episodes -- one chosen by home viewers and one by the judging panel -- will then return to compete in the show's penultimate broadcast.
Home viewers will be able to vote immediately following the penultimate broadcast, and the winner -- who will receive a donation for his or her favorite charity -- will be revealed during the the following night's finale show.
Following its 90-minute debut, Let's Dance's two other first-round broadcasts will air Mondays at 9PM ET/PT on November 30 and December 7. The penultimate broadcast will air on Monday, December 14 at 9PM ET/PT and be followed by the finale on Tuesday, December 15 at 8PM ET/PT.
The show's celebrity participants and judging panel will be revealed in the near future.
ABC orderedLet's Dance in June. The series is based on Let's Dance for Comic Relief, a four-episode U.K. series that aired on the BBC to raise money for the Comic Relief charity earlier this year.
