ABC is getting ready to dance — this time with Kathy Griffin.

The comic/reality show star has signed on to host "Let’s Dance," a new reality competition series in which celebrities re-enact famous dance routines from pop culture.

According to the network’s website, the series will debut Monday, Nov. 23, at 9:30 p.m., immediately following the performance finale of "Dancing With the Stars."

ABC has ordered five episodes of "Dance," which lets contestants choose their favorite celebrity routines. The top finishers return for a grand finale in December.

After the 90-minute premiere, "Dance" will air Mondays at 9 p.m. Its finale is slated for Tuesday at 8 in mid-December.

"American Idol" producer FremantleMedia North America is behind the series, news of which was first reported in June.
