Don’t leave me hanging this week and make me think I’m the ONLY ONE watching this show.
Because I know that isn’t true.
Highest ratings accolades continue. I’m not sure if it’s highest ratings for a dance show? Monday night? Best on ABC? Best dance show with very few stars?
I also know that I have several readers who have actually confessed they don’t even watch the show but come to read my re-cap just to see who got voted off.
So I’ll re-cap again this week but if you leave me hanging with nary a comment, I’ll have to start reviewing one of the Bravo Housewives show and I know that could get ugly and exceed my PG-13 rating.
Side note: Nary is a funny word. I read it in a report I was proofing last week. So glad I found a way to use it here.
Back to the program…
Margaret Cho really tried hard but I wasn’t surprised she was let go. I would have preferred “The Situation” leaving but I guess we have to endure another week with him.
My frivolous comments in dance order…
Kurt Warner & Anna Trebunskaya – He just makes me smile when I watch him dance. Watching a guy his size dance and look graceful keeps me watching the show. And I’m glad it wasn’t raunchy. The judges’ scoring baffled me especially after their comments.
Brandy & Maks Chmerkovskiy – I would have liked to have seen Kurt do the choregraphy by Maks. Loved it but still just don’t love Brandy.
Rick Fox & Cheryl Burke – How did they get higher scores than Kurt and Anna with much harsher criticism? Liked it but I didn’t love it.
Kyle Massey & Lacey Schwimmer – Pretty non-descript. Can’t think of anything that stood out to even comment about.
The Situation & Karina Smirnoff – I just don’t want to watch “The Sich” anymore. Even if he does want to “do good” for Karina. I guess if it was the lift dance…oh wait those were bad too.
Florence Henderson & Corky Ballas – Mrs. Brady is a bit of wildcat. Very interesting and impressive especially for her age. The dance was awkward but their performance was funny and yet strange. Cannot believe her technical scores were higher than Kurt’s. Yes, I’m holding a grudge and think the first dance got the hardest judging.
Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough – Loved, loved, loved it!! Derek made her look like the professional dancer. Such great legs and they looked so good together! Well-deserved highest scores of the night!
Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas – Call me old-fashioned but I don’t want to see a 19 year old mom dance like that. Especially with her little sister in the audience. This dance exceeded the “ok for kids 10+” in my opinion. Broken record: HOW did she get higher technical scores than Kurt and Anna?????
Audrina Patridge & Tony Dovolani – She continues to do a nice job but her transition from receptionist 5 years ago (her own words) to being a top contender on DWTS is a little hard for me to embrace.
My personal favs are still the same but Rick & Cheryl are on shaky ground unless they really bring it next week:
- Jennifer & Derek
- Kurt & Anna
- Rick & Cheryl
Who were your favorites this week?
