'DWTS': Melissa & Tony
The pair talks about their journey to this point.
Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars hit a season high in terms of Monday night ratings. The finale performances show earned 16 million viewers and a 2.6 rating in the ad-coveted 18-49 demo. Though this has been the biggest night for this season thus far, it’s still down 26 percent from last fall’s final performance episode. [EW]

Comedy Central’s Key & Peele has been renewed for a third season. Another 13-episode cycle of the Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele series has been ordered and is set to premiere next fall. [Deadline]

Meanwhile, USA’s Unnecessary Roughness will also be seeing a third season. The one-hour drama, which stars Golden Globe nominee Callie Thorne, is in the final stages of a 10-episode renewal, which is down from 12 for Season 1 and 16 from Season 2. [Deadline]

Prepare for more Russell Brand and W. Kamau Bell as FX has ordered 13 more episodes from each of the respective comedian’s late night talk shows. However, Brand X will undergo yet another creative change — similar to the one done between the first and second cycles — as it will be expanded from a half-hour to one hour. [Deadline]

Once Upon a Time actor David Anders has been cast on Arrow,  appearing in The CW superhero series’ 13th episode. Anders will play Cyrus Vanch, a man fresh off a prison sentence looking to become the leader of Starling City’s unsavory characters. [TV Line]

Disney’s newest princess is getting her own regular series. Hot on the heels of top-rated Sofia the First TV movie, Disney Channel has announced the date for the property’s series premiere. The show, which centers around a girl as she adjusts to life as an overnight princess, will debut Jan. 11, 2013.
