'Dancing With the Stars' host returning from baby duty

Though we can certainly get used to Dancing With The Stars guest host Drew Lachey - the season-two winner who’s proven surprisingly adept at chatting up (and charming the sequins off) the sweaty dancers backstage - he’s not expected to stick around much longer. Tom Bergeron told EW that his regular co-host Samantha Harris will likely return from maternity leave by either week four or five of the show’s fifth season. But Lachey won’t stay on the sidelines for long; he’s set to handle hosting duties for ABC’s new Dance War early next year.
