ABC’s Dancing with the Stars returned last night for a 24th cycle that saw its stars, ranging from Spanish dynamo Charo to modern legend Mr. T, treading the boards with eyes firmly planted on that coveted Mirror Ball trophy. But it wasn’t only the celebrities that deserved time in the spotlight. The evening marked a true milestone -- the 400th installment of ABC’s long-running and still vital franchise.

His first report follows.)
