NEW YORK – Samantha Harris has replaced Lisa Canning as co-host of "Dancing With the Stars," which returns to ABC Jan. 5.
Harris will co-host a live, half-hour results show with Tom Bergeron beginning Jan. 6 at 8 p.m. On that show, one dancing couple will be eliminated.
She'll also appear on the Thursday-night performance show, conducting backstage interviews with the dancing partners.
Harris is a correspondent on "E! News" and "THS Investigates" and has also hosted on "Extra," "The Next Joe Millionaire" and "AMC Access."
"Dancing" pairs celebrities with professional dancers, with each pair learning a new dance every week, then being judged by a panel of experts and viewers at home.
