Best bets: 'Dancing With the Stars' brings new drama to the ballroom

It's the ugliest trophy we know of, but celebrities still compete for it: The "Dancing With the Stars" mirror ball is up for grabs with a whole new cast starting their ballroom bash this week. Also this week: "Zero Dark Thirty" comes to home video, and Tina Fey's new movie, "Admission," arrives in theaters.

MONDAY: 'Dancing With the Stars'
"Dancing With the Stars" always rises and falls on the strength of its celebrity dancers. Not necessarily the ones that are the most talented, but the ones who bring the drama. Comedian Andy Dick has reportedly already done that, reporting that he had a breakdown, cried, and lashed out at his professional partner. He's sure to be one to watch. Also in "Dancing" news: Newly engaged "Bachelor" Sean Lowe has been added to the cast. Gymnast Aly Raisman, actor D.L. Hughley, Olympic skater Dorothy Hamill and Grammy-winning country singer Wynonna Judd will also be competing for the weirdly sparkly mirror ball trophy. (March 18, 8 p.m., ABC.)

TUESDAY: 'Zero Dark Thirty' on home video
The dramatic and intense Oscar nominee "Zero Dark Thirty" comes to home video this week. While the film only won one Oscar (best sound editing) out of the five for which it was nominated, it has received raves from critics. And when Esquire spoke with the Navy SEAL who reportedly fired the final shots that killed terrorist Osama bin Laden, he confirmed that much of the film's detail is accurate, though he took issue with the noise the SEALs made during the raid. The film can be difficult to watch -- especially the much-discussed torture scenes -- but the final hour is spellbinding, and even though you know how it ends, you'll be on the edge of your seat. (Out on home video March 19.)

FRIDAY: 'Admission'
Tina Fey made headlines recently when William Shatner joked at the Oscars that he wished Fey and Amy Poehler were hosting that awards show instead of Seth MacFarlane. But was he really joking? Fey's as popular as ever -- unless you're Taylor Swift and still mad about that Golden Globes crack. In "Admission," Fey plays an admissions officer at Princeton who discovers a gifted student might just be the son she gave up for adoption years ago. Paul Rudd plays the cute single dad who may find himself in a romance with Fey. (Opens March 22.)
