Not only did many new tandems debut on the Dancing with the Stars premiere last night, but a new co-host made her first appearance as well.

Welcome aboard the ABC hit, Erin Andrews!

How did the sports reporter do in this role? She was on camera quite often, actually, more than Tom Bergeron in fact.


And she definitely brought both energy and insight to the skybox, seemingly at home among dancers because dancers are athletes and she’s made quite a living interviewing athletes over the years.

Andrews seemed a tad nervous at first and was perhaps too focused on the pair’s sexual chemistry (“How was it dancing in front of your girlfriend with these distracting hips?” she asked Cody Simpson while gesturing toward Witney Carson)… but, overall, a solid debut.

And we’re not just saying that because Erin Andrews is ridiculously attractive.

How do YOU think she did? Grade her first episode as co-host now:
