It was the best of times and the worst of times for Alfonso Ribeiro on Monday night's Dancing with the Stars.
He and partner Witney Carson delivered a triumphant performance of their hip-hop samba, earning the evening's highest marks (39 out of 40). But the actor was also left limping after aggravating a groin injury during the high-energy number.
Pitbull was in the house to perform and guest judge on a night that Dancing with the Stars promised lots of "muy caliente" moments – that is, until the judges (and America) threw cold water on the latest ousted celebrity.
Though he earned an impressive 32 out of 40 for his jazz dance, Mean Girls star Jonathan Bennett was the newest star to leave the dance floor Monday.
"Here's the thing," explained Bennett. "I came here to do this show, to have fun, to have a really great experience and to bring life back into my life, and that's what I did. I had the best time of my life."
Here's how the whole show – which included a stellar appearance by Leah Remini as a guest host – played out under the mirror ball:
Janel Parrish is best known for playing Mona Vanderwaal on the TV drama Pretty Little Liars. She's been paired with pro Val Chmerkovskiy for season 19 of Dancing with the Stars, and she'll be blogging for PEOPLE about her experience on the hit ABC show.
Dancing to a Jessie J song knowing that she would be a guest judge definitely put the pressure on last week!
I'm a huge fan and I wanted to make sure that we did that song justice. I think she was a little shocked seeing the song she wrote for her mom being taken in a racy way, but she seemed to really enjoy the dance.
After burying his son, Mike Murburg ballooned to almost 400 lbs. – but he also credits his son for saving his life and setting him down the path to healthier living.
"It really didn’t get to me until I was about five minutes away from The National Cemetery," the Biggest Loser contestant tells PEOPLE of realizing the role his son played in his weight-loss journey. "Then it occurred to me that by making me promise him that I would [get healthy], he saved my life."
It'll be his first comedy special in four years – and the first he's ever directed – so comedian Dane Cook was all in for his Showtime comedy special Troublemaker.
"All the mysteries of life will be revealed," the 42-year-old jokes. "No, honestly, it was me ponying up my own cash and you'll get to watch something that I truly dreamed of."
Here are five reasons you don't want to miss Friday night's special.
For 10 years, celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels scored a huge following for thundering down tough love while motivating contestants on The Biggest Loser.
But after announcing in June that she was leaving the show – yet again – many wondered whether the fitness pro would eventually muscle her way back to prime time.
Could a solo reality show be tipping the scales?
Thursday night's How to Get Away with Murder was a shocker for more reasons than one.
Aside from the episode's jaw-dropping plot twists, there was one wardrobe change that still has folks talking.
Toward the end, Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) makes a shocking discovery that links her husband to a murdered sorority girl. This then called for a little me-time.
On Thursday night's episode of Scandal, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) watched the apple of President Fitz's eye turn sour, all while Jake's secret plan to out her father floundered, taking him down with it.
It's the first daughter's turn at a little, er, a lot of mischief. She and some friends snuck out of school to a party where they danced, drank and took drugs. Basic teen misbehaving until she lands herself in a threesome with two unknown boys, one of whom ends up taping the tryst – including scenes of an I-don't-even-want-to-know sex act called "Eiffel Towering" – and sends her the clip as a kinky keepsake.
