For the season debut, the show will air on three consecutive nights its first week, with the six female contestants performing on Monday and the six males on Tuesday. One contestant will then be sent home on Wednesday's live results show. Starting the second week on Oct. 1, the show will air on two consecutive nights: the performance show on Mondays and the live results show on Tuesdays. With the dancers in place, Green says there's one more casting decision left to make: Who will fill in for host Samantha Harris while she's on maternity leave? Harris, who's due to give birth to her first child in early October, recently told PEOPLE, "My hope is to be there for the beginning of the season for a week or two, maybe three, have the baby and maybe be gone for two, three, four weeks – and, if I'm lucky enough to have a quick recovery, be back on the show for the rest of the season."
