TV: What You Need to Know This Morning

 

Jimmy Kimmel and Indiana Jones (ABC)

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE NIGHT:

“Dancing with the Stars” Fabulous. That’s our one-word review of Monday night’s season premiere of “Dancing with the Stars.” Seriously, despite diminished expectations, we reveled in the hot mess nerves and makeovers of dancing newbies Mischa Barton, Paige VanZant, Jodie Sweetin, Geraldo Rivera and others on opening night.  No one was eliminated yet, and no, we aren’t making any predictions yet …

“The Voice”: Battle Rounds always make us very tense. Alisan Porter is STRONG. Agree with the fan who wrote on Facebook, “Alisan freaking killed it!”  Check out the TVLine recap or watch last night’s 2-hour nail-biter here

TBS’s “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee”: We are loving it. That is all …

“Jimmy Kimmel Live”: To celebrate the first day of Spring, Jimmy Kimmel welcomed several furry friends for the Jimmy Kimmel Live first annual Baby Animal Parade. Ya gotta watch this sure-to-be-viral video

OTHER QUICK HITS:

Are you still reeling from last weekend’s TV? “Black Sails”? “The Walking Dead”? We sure are… For the second year in a row, “The Talk” will exclusively announce the “43rd Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards” nominations live on Thursday, March 24th … Mark your calendars: On April 1, music superstars Dolly Parton and Katy Perry will duet at the 51ST Academy of Country Music Awards … CNN was yesterday’s most live streamed network … No surprise that “The Walking Dead” was heavily searched by XFINITY customers, but so was “Last Week with Jon Oliver”
