August 15, 2006|From the Associated Press

Tucker Carlson of MSNBC and talk-show host Jerry Springer will be among the celebrities competing on the third season of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."

The new season of the show -- which pairs 11 competitors of sometimes dubious celebrity and varying skill with professional dancer-partners -- premieres at 8 p.m. Sept. 12, the network announced Monday.

Also heading to the dance floor: Vivica A. Fox, Harry Hamlin, Joe Lawrence, Mario Lopez, Sara Evans, Willa Ford, Monique Coleman, former beauty queen Shanna Moakler and three-time Super Bowl champion Emmitt Smith.

This season, the celebrity and professional dance pairs will perform choreographed Latin and traditional ballroom routines to popular live music. Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba will return to judge the performances, ABC said.
