ABC announced the premiere dates for the 10-year anniversary edition of "Dancing with the Stars" (Monday, March 16, 8 p.m.), and a special 25th anniversary episode of "America's Funniest Home Videos" (Sunday, Feb. 15, 7 p.m.).

"Dancing with the Stars" returns for its 20th season with an all-new celebrity cast - to be announced at a later date - that will brave the dance floor for the first time. Each week, these celebrities will leave their comfort zones and endure hours of grueling rehearsals to master technical choreography and entertaining performances. In the end, only one star will rise above the rest to be crowned champion and win the coveted mirror-ball trophy.

Hosted by Emmy Award-winning Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Erin Andrews, "Dancing with the Stars" is the hit series in which celebrities perform choreographed dance routines judged by renowned ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba and Julianne Hough.

In honor of "America's Funniest Home Videos'" 25th anniversary, ABC will celebrate the milestone with a special event, "AFV's 25th Anniversary Celebrity Celebration." Celebrity guests from ABC's hit comedies, including Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross from "black-ish" and Cristela Alonzo from "Cristela," will join host Bergeron to watch the best clips from the past 25 years.

Viewers will not want to miss this special event as the stars pare down the funniest videos in "AFV" history. The live studio audience will then vote on their favorite clips to determine the winning video. The submitter of the winning video will receive a Caribbean Disney Cruise Line vacation for four. 

"America's Funniest Home Videos" is the longest-running primetime entertainment show in ABC's history.
