No Elimination Planned This Week on DANCING WITH THE STARS, 10/22-23
This week, it's 'Guilty Pleasures Week,' as the competition gets extreme with two nights of performances and no elimination, on "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars."

On night two, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23 (8:00-9:01 p.m., ET), the four couples who performed their Team Dance on Monday night will dance their individual dances to their selected 'guilty pleasure' song, and the other four couples will take their turn on the dance floor with their Freestyle Team Dance. Judges' scores and viewer votes from Monday and Tuesday night will be added to the following week's scores and votes.
