Dancing With the Stars returned last night. There were some impressive cha-chas on the show. Unfortunately Kendra Wilkinson's outfit covered them up.
It looks like CHARLIE SHEEN could be returning to Two and a Half Men! Apparently those secret talks that Charlie had with the Fox network kicked CBS into gear. CBS sees how popular Charlie is and is said to be putting the heat on Warner Brothers and producers of the show to make it happen. Some reports even say that CBS has offered Charlie his job back and that discussions are ongoing. Meanwhile, Charlie is working with Sean Penn to take his live stage show to Haiti for a benefit performance.
DANCING WITH THE STARS returned last night and Karate Kid Ralph Macchio established himself as a frontrunner, scoring an evening-high 24 points. Everyone stays to dance next Monday with the first elimination the following night.

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania's Daniel E. Rahynes walked into a bank to open an account. The 35-year-old Daniel presented his ID and began the paperwork before saying he'd made a mistake and was actually there to rob the bank. After driving off with a small amount of cash, the now identified Daniel promptly hit another vehicle and kept going. Later that day, police caught up with Daniel in Carlisle, Pennsylvania where he'd gotten in another car accident. Daniel was arrested on bank robbery charges and, in what may explain it all, driving under the influence.
