DWTS: Midseason 2010-11 TV Ratings – Dancing With The Stars 9th!

The Midseason TV Show Ratings have been announced! According to EW, Dancing With The Stars rates at #9!! Below is the Top 30! Be sure to view the link to see which other TV shows made the Top 50 (and bottom 50). Special Note (as Heidi just wrote me): DWTS hasn’t aired since November and that affects it’s standings in the midseason ratings and why it might not be rated even higher. All of the other shows listed have aired since November, so they benefit by the lack of DWTS. American Idol didn’t air at the same time as Dancing With The Stars, but, it probably has artificially high numbers due to the curiosity factor.

1. American Idol Wednesday (Fox, 9.9 rating/26 share)

2. American Idol Thursday (Fox, 8.2/22)

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.

DWTS Season 12 RUMOR – Christine O’Donnell

As much as it pains me horribly to write this, I kinda feel like I have to follow our usual course of hearing something then writing about it – no matter how badly I hope and pray that this person is full of crap. Not Jennifer, who told us about this in the comments, but Christine herself. Is it April 1st yet?? Someone lie to me, please. :-)

From Christine herself, via Twitter (click the embedded link to go to Facebook):

FACEBOOK EXCLUSIVE:I just got the Official "Ask" from Dancing With The Stars !!Although I am utterly flattered,... http://fb.me/tFUQ5eJb

Christine O'Donnell

It really disturbs me that the producers continue to go the wacko politico route – why not a nice retired, non-tea baggy politio of any political stripe OTHER than Tea Party?? Why not stay away from politics altogether? The only ones “famous” (infamous?) enough AND willing to do the show are more than a little nutty.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTS – Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Promo Poster For The Ukraine Backelor/Appearance On Million Dollar Listing

Still no word if Maks is officially dancing on Dancing With The Stars, but, we have other Maksim goodies to share special thanks to @dwtsgossip at Twitter. Above is the new official promo poster for The Ukraine Bachelor. If interested, you can also follow the show at it’s official Facebook page >>>>HERE. If you haven’t done so yet, be sure to see our earlier posting of the commercial HERE and see two of the contestants which might have captured Maks’ eye on the show HERE.

Also, this past weekend, Maks made an appearance on the “Million Dollar Listing” show where he looked at an ocean side apartment in Malibu priced at $5 Million. You can view his appearance at the 36 minute mark. It didn’t take Maks long to decline. The look on the face of the young stunned Realtor is priceless. I have a feeling Maks has a special way of doing that to everyone in his wake. lol

Thanks to @FLLotterDreamer and @BotanicalLilly at twitter for the heads up on the video above.

DWTS Season 12 Cast Rumor – Chris Jericho Redux

Well, this guy has been rumored before – prior to Season 11 – and we did a good bit of reporting on the subject at the time, both when I found some random tweets, and when talking about how DWTS tends to typecast. There are several other articles about him on this site, if you want to do a search.

Now, it’s WrestleHeat.com’s turn to spread the Chris rumor:

PWInsider.com is reporting that Chris Jericho will be competing on the 12th season of ABC’s number one rated series, Dancing With The Stars, which starts in March. Jericho has ties to ABC as he previously hosted a game show for the network last year. The cast for the season will be officially announced on 2/28.

In my personal opinion, Chris would be a good member of the cast – why not. And for you skeptics out there, how many times have we seen old rumors become reality several seasons after the original rumor? Well, Jennifer Grey was one of many. :-)
