‘Dancing With the Stars’: American hero dazzles.

But actress Bindi Irwin and American hero Alek Skarlatos were knockouts on the season premiere Monday of “Dancing With the Stars.” The good news: They will have lots of competition in what looks like a promising season. The image was a re-post from the official Instagram account of Dancing With The Stars, and shows the Aussie wildlife princess having her hair and makeup done alongside other DWTS pros, Lindsay Arnold Cusick and Brittany Cherry.

With her locks coiffed in curls, Bindi’s brown eyes were accentuated with lashings of black eyeliner and mascara and has a shade of brown of lipstick applied. ‘Everything I do in life is to make him proud and to carry on his legacy, and so I really am dedicating this entire—however long I’m able to make it—to him, to my family, to other people who are in a similar position.’ News caught up with Bindi and Derek during rehearsals for season 21 of DWTS, and we asked the 17 year-old wildlife expert if she would be doing any tributes to her father, the late Steve Irwin.

The new season premieres Monday, Sept. 14, at 8 p.m. on ABC (2.) (Matt Petit/ABC) “36 Hours”: The New York Times travel column that recently visited Portland (again) and raised a ruckus (again) is a TV show, too. The lineup is so bad, it may actually test America’s notoriously high tolerance for no-talent hucksters, never-quite-beens, narcissistic camera whores, underachieving children of actual stars, and the occasional racist (we’re looking at you, Season 21 butter queen Paula Deen). The show underwent a major overhaul in 2014, replacing, the Harold Wheeler Band, the show’s orchestra of 17 seasons, with a small electronic band and pre-recorded songs.

You know, after you lose a person like that, you feel like the sun will never shine again, but it will, and it may not shine as brightly, but you have to find that light in everything that you do. Just think: This time around, one of the most accomplished contestants in his field is jockey Victor Espinoza, who won the Triple Crown with American Pharoah. I feel like this experience, getting to work with Derek and the beautiful people on this show, has really been such a bright place for me, and I’m excited to focus all of my energy on doing the best job possible.” “She reintroduces the magic into your life. I’ve previewed the episode, and have the scoop (there’s also a road trip to the Oregon coast, with “Top Chef” runner-up, Portland chef Gregory Gourdet.) It airs at 5 p.m. and midnight on Comcast high-def channel 765; Frontier cable channels 170, 1623 and 670; Dish Network channels 196, 4215, 5366 and 9437; and on DirecTV channel 277. You’ve got your teens, like 15-year-old Vine celeb Hayes Grier and 17-year-old multitasker Bindi Irwin (who also fills the “progeny of” slot, being the daughter of Steve “Crocodile Hunter” Irwin).

ABC has announced what songs the celebs and their pro partners will dance to; earlier, we asked readers what song might be a better choice for Skarlatos. The over 40 athletes that have tried for the Mirror Ball are: NFL legends Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith; boxers Evander Holyfield and Floyd Mayweather; NBA player Rick Fox; and Olympic gymnasts Aly Raisman and Nastia Liukin. He moved to America and lived in a barn with horses because he loved them and wanted to become a jockey but didn’t have the means to go to training, and now he has prevailed.

Social media star Hayes Grier, who is just 15, showed charm, style and potential on a cha cha set to “Cheerleader.” Tonioli said he was the season’s boy wonder, and Inaba praised his stage presence. Another early fave is from a perennially competitive category known as “the former boy bander” — in this case, the Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter.

She really brings magic into every day life.” Hit play on the video above to listen to Bindi gush about everything from Derek to khaki to Grace Kelly, and to fall in love with her as much as we have. The movies, TV shows, fairy tales, princesses, DVDs, theme parks, and mountains of licensed merchandise seem as much a part of the national DNA as the Constitution, coffee drinking, and arguing about politics. In this July 11, 2013 photo released by The O + M Company, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, left, and Karina Smirnoff perform at the “Forever Tango” at the Walter Kerr Theatre on in New York. (AP Photo/The O + M Company, Walter McBride) Pro Karina Smirnoff is known for her string of breakups, having had three engagements end. While we now have dreams of Bindi Irwin telling us stories when we we’re sick (and also all the time), we’d like those stories to be accompanied by her fellow DWTS competitor Paula Deen making us breakfast. If you’re going to shake up the judging panel, get rid of all of them, not just Len Goodman — especially since his replacement is Julianne Hough, the personality-free sister of ultra-dominant pro Derek Hough.

And the achievement of this excellent “American Experience” two-part, four-hour biography of Disney, is how it peels back the layers of marketing and myth to explain how the foundation of the Disney empire is inextricably linked with the dreams, ambitions and drive of Disney himself. At least Goodman was endearingly cranky, even if he could also hold fierce personal grudges — pro Lacey Schwimmer could never seem to please him, for instance. Cook Paula Deen got through a quickstep, then announced she was so afraid that she may have soiled herself. (She had belched in the taped segment.) Inaba said it looked like Deen was being dragged around the floor, and Hough said she was holding on for dear life. And then there’s the fact that some pros miraculously always land good stars while others get shafted: Once again, poor Louis van Amstel was matched with the kind of total no-hoper (a k a Paula Deen) that fabulous Derek would never get. “DWTS” still performs well enough for ABC, and the show can’t be that expensive to produce.

We’re doing the salsa for our first dance, and no matter how we’ve tried, any time we get into the right framing position with our hips aligned, I’m not able to move at all. PBS/10) “Significant Mother”: The filmed and set-in-Portland comedy continues, with Nate going on dates with ladies he meets from an online dating site. (9:30 p.m. J.Lo was paid upward of $17 million for her stint on “Idol,” while the “DWTS” judges make just north of $1 million per season — not a bad bargain for the network.

I still haven’t figured out how we are going to solve that problem, but I refuse to look at this as anything more than an opportunity to rise to the occasion. We’re going to focus on showing off his personality and will definitely deliver fun and entertaining numbers – and hopefully we’ll overcome our challenges with the help of our fans!

ET on ABC, and Smirnoff is hosting the opening of her new studio, Dancing Under the Stars, at the The Village at Westfield in Topanga, California, Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m.
