The highly successful reality series Dancing With the Stars returns to ABC tonight with a new cast of dancing wannabes and celebrities trying to reclaim their stardom.

Some dancers to look out for include famed boxer Sugar Ray Leonard; former college basketball star — and the son of Master P — Romeo; football standout Hines Ward of the Pittsburgh Steelers; and daytime television host Wendy Williams. Let the supreme awkwardness begin! Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Previous recommendation: ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’
