Bill Nye the Science Guy! Snooki & Bill Engvall will be part of the 17th season of 'Dancing With The Stars!'

I'm so excited about Bill Nye the Science Guy!  I loved watching him when I was young.  (Shows my age, huh?)

Here's the rest of the cast, according to -

-Elizabeth Berkley ("Saved by the Bell," "Showgirls") -- paired with Val Chmerkovskiy.

-Corbin Bleu ("High School Musical") -- paired with Karina Smirnoff.

-Brian Daugherty ("Pretty Little Liars") -- paired with Peta Murgatroyd.

-Bill Engvall (comedian) -- paired with Emma Slater.

-Valerie Harper ("The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "Rhoda") -- Tristan MacManus.

-Keyshawn Johnson (former NFL player) -- paired with Sharna Burgess.

-Christina Milian (singer/"The Voice" personality) -- paired with Mark Ballas.

-Bill Nye ("Bill Nye the Science Guy") -- paired with Tyne Stecklein.

-Jack Osbourne (son of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne) -- paired with Cheryl Burke.

-Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi ("Jersey Shore," "Snooki & JWoww") -- paired with Sasha Farber.

-Leah Remini ("The King of Queens") -- paired with Tony Dovolani.

-Amber Riley ("Glee") -- paired with Derek Hough.

The stars and their partners will show off their moves when 'Dancing with the Stars' returns on September 16 at 8pm on ABC. The show will only air one day each week, on Monday nights.

But how will that work?  Well, viewers will vote for their favorites, just like always.  But then a couple will be eliminated at the end of each episode based on judges' scores for that night, combined with the public's votes from the previous week.

Maybe 'American Idol' should take a cue from this model....
