Awesome Threesome to Work Together: 'Desperate Housewives' Creator Marc Cherry, the 'View's' Joy Behar, and Actress Marilu Henner AP

Come January, Marc Cherry, Joy Behar and Marilu Henner will all be working together, reports the Associated Press.

The occasion is the 90th (!) Miss America pageant on ABC.

The show is returning to ABC as part of a three-year deal, the story notes, which hasn't aired the competition since 2004, when it dropped the program after record-low ratings.

Cherry, Behar and Henner will be judges. Other judges for the Jan. 15 event include "Dancing with the Stars" choreographer Tony Dovolani and shoe designer Taryn Rose, as well as 1990 Miss America Debbye Turner Bell, the story notes.

The show's hosts will be Chris Harrison, the host of ABC's "The Bachelor," and "Dancing with the Stars" co-host Brooke Burke.
