Dancing Again

All those who thought John O'Hurley was robbed on the Dancing with the Stars finale: he's getting another shot.

Kelly Monaco and the former Seinfeld star wilreturn for a rematch on Sept. 20. The results show will air two nights later.

Many suspected Monaco had been favored because she works on ABC's General Hospital. The network, not surprisingly, has denied such claims.

Wanna bet O'Hurley wins the rematch?

...and Contending Again

The Contender, the boxing reality series KO'ed by NBC last season, is returning to ESPN sooner than expected.

Contender season one champ Sergio "The Latin Snake" Mora will take on Peter "The Pride of Providence" Manfredo Jr. in a rematch October 15 on ESPN. The event also will reunite other fighters from the first season on the undercard.

The network also plans to carry a second season of The Contender in the spring, with Sylvester Stallone and Sugar Ray Leonard still on board.
