Backstage at Dancing with the Stars
TV Guide and People filed reports from last night’s Results Show. Len Goodman and Alec Mazo told TV Guide that they were concerned about Laila & Maks’ upcoming freestyle routine. Apolo and Joey will have no problem tossing their petite partners about in exciting lifts and tricks, whereas Maks will have to compensate for the fact that Laila is nearly the same height and weight as him.

But Laila gave People a hint that their freestyle might take advantage of one of Maks’ special attributes: "We’re going to bring that sex appeal because he’s hot!"

CBS’ Fall Lineup
CBS announced its fall lineup today, and The Amazing Race wasn’t in the schedule. But fear not, Race fans — TAR will make a midseason return.

Speaking of TAR, MSN City Guides published a guide to all of the finish-line destinations featured on the show.

New Shows Hit the Net
Two cable networks are producing new shows that will run solely on the Internet. TLC’s new show Makeover Train will feature stylists riding the subway to look for passengers in need of a new look. And E! is creating four series that will post new episodes weekly.
