|Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough (my favorite pro dancer)|
I used to have an idea of who watched Dancing With The Stars. I envisioned a decrepit woman in her shag-carpeted living room, Swanson TV dinner on her metal tray. My TV trays are wood and I'm still a couple of sciatica attacks away from feeling old. I'm gonna blame my tumble into television Wasteland on the lack of better choices during Monday night prime-time. I'm hooked now; I'll stop apologizing. Have you seen the show?
It's been an interesting season in that everyone seems more D-List than usual. Where was the hole they dug Michael Bolton out of to do the show? Jennifer Grey (Baby in the Corner) is fantastic. She's quick, lively, and has quite the hard bod. I adore Kyle Massey, a young Disney Channel star. The kid oozes chutzpah; I almost choked when he said he was 19. I was sad The Hof was voted out so quickly; he was good for some cheesy Baywatch flashback moments.
Alaska's 1st Daughter is a dead carp. I know some bad dancers (some are reading this). But she's dreadful. And yet she's still there. What gives? I can only think it's her mother and the Vast Right -Wing Conspiracy tying up the phone lines with votes.
Really, do me a favor. Tune in on Monday night, ABC, 8:00, 7:00 central. I couldn't give a hoot about dancing, but just seeing the elaborate costuming gives me the mid-Olympic ice skating fix I crave.
I even have Scot watching. Shhhh... he'll be mortified I told you.
