Leah Remini Replaces Erin Andrews as ‘Dancing With the Star’s Host — For Now
Say goodbye to Erin Andrews and hello to Leah Remini! The Season 17 contestant will be co-hosting with Tom Bergeron during Dancing With the Stars Season 21 — at least for a little bit.

No, Erin isn't leaving the show. Like last year, she's just going to take a short break to cover the World Series in her other gig as a FOX MLB sideline reporter. Which we guess is also pretty cool and important.

According to E! News, Erin is starting her break this week. While they didn't say how long Erin will be gone, the World Series is slated to end November 4, so we expect to see her back in the ballroom on Monday, November 9 at the latest.
Erin actually took the same break last year, and Leah filled in for her then, too. The King of Queens fan fave, who's currently starring in her own reality series, Leah Remini: It's All Relative, did a solid job taking her place before, so we're glad to see her back on board. We're sure she'll hold down the fort well while Erin is busy reporting on baseball.
Catch Dancing With the Stars on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
