I have to agree with the article that this is the most exciting cast they've had in awhile.  It might be fair, but like that they have some actual talent in the season this time.  So here are the stars:

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi - no comment

Valerie Harper - amazing that she's dancing with terminal cancer, should be very moving, plus you've got her sense of humor.

Elizabeth Berkley (from Saved by the Bell and Showgirls) - she used to be able to dance, hope she looks a bit classier than previous shows.

Amber Riley from Glee - she can move and knows how to entertain.  Also has Derek Hough as a partner.  I hope she does well, and that they let her sing at some point!

Keyshawn Johnson - football player

Corbin Bleu - from High School Musical - can I say how excited I am for this? I think he's been on broadway as well and is a phenomenal dancer.  He's my bet for the season.

Leah Remini - from King of Queens -

Chritina Milian - from the Voice, don't remember much about her

Bill Nye the Science Guy - this one just cracks me up completely, but will be painful to watch

Brant Daugherty - from Pretty Little Liars and Army Wives

Jack Osbourne - not sure how he'll do

Bill Engvall - Blue Collar Comedy comedian

I'm excited for this cast!  It should be very entertaining.  I am looking forward to watching Leah Remini, Amber Riley, Bill Engvall, and especially Valerie Harper.  Can't wait to watch it again this season!

Last season was the first I had tuned in for in several seasons, this one looks like it may be pretty exciting also. Wish it wasn't on the same time as the Voice though. I'm trying to keep the TV turned off until the kids go to bed, this makes it a real challenge!

Hmmm, my replies keep coming up blank... Last season was the first I had tuned in in quite some time. This cast looks pretty interesting. I just wish it wasn't on at the same time as the Voice!! I am trying to keep the TV turned off in the evenings until after the kids go to bed and this is making it harder!
