When this season of Dancing With the Stars ends, viewers won't have to wait long -- or at all -- to see their favorite celebrities on the dance floor.

Kathy Griffin will host ABC's new show Let's Dance, which premieres immediately after the finale of DWTS on Nov. 23, Usmagazine.com has learned.

"The competition will be hot -- and hilarious -- as teams of celebrities pay comedic homage to famous dances while competing for a $250,000 grand prize for their favorite charity," the show's site reads. "The show will include single dancers, duos and groups, all competing against each other to wow a panel of judges and viewers across America who will be voting each week leading up to the series finale."

The panel of judges and celebrity participants will be announced in the next couple of weeks.
