Tom Bergeron Dishes On His Favorite & Most Wildest Moments On Dancing With The Stars (Videos)

Today Tom Bergeron visited with Access Hollywood about Dancing With The Stars and the last elimination. He tries to explain why Maks called Dancing With The Stars “his show” and how it was taken wrong. However, he can’t explain Maks’ “butt grabbing”. :) Tom also dishes on some of his favorite and ‘wildest moments’ hosting Dancing With The Stars. He tries to fill in for Billy too. He’s a hoot as always!

Dancing With The Stars Season 13 TV Ratings For Nov. 7 – 13th

In the week of Oct.31st-Nov.6th, Dancing With The Stars moved up to 5th and 9th with their viewership numbers always staying steady at around 15-16+ million viewers. The official numbers from Nielson’s for last week have been released for the week of Nov. 7th – 13th. Dancing With The Stars made a small jump up the ladder again to 3rd and 8th (see below). Note too how the viewership numbers for last Monday night’s show increased to over 18+ million viewers (from 16+ million the week before) which is outstanding considering the show competed with football and even a major awards show. The early projections for this week have Monday night’s show coming in with 19+ million viewers (an increase) and Tuesday’s result show coming in with 9 million viewerships which is a big decrease…especailly for a semi finals show. It makes one wonder if this week’s results show will even make the top 20 next week when all the official numbers are in? Note too how the X Factor didn’t make the Top 20 last week. Ouch!

Special thanks to @donamadrina at twitter for her help with this post!!

Heidi’s Note: I don’t think you can project from one week to the next on how the show’s going to do – it does hinge on how other shows do, after all. :-)  Lot’s of football, a good number of re-runs (Mentalist, for one) and the holidays all lead to a few “issues”.  No biggie, it’s still in the top 10 and there’s always a bit of a slump at this point in the season.

Dancing With The Stars Judges Dish On the Surprising Season, Favorite Dances, And More!

Cameron Mathison of Good Morning America caught up with the judges after the semi-finals this week to ask them who they think will win Dancing With The Stars Season 13. They give their thoughts about the “surprising season”. They highlight their favorite dances (I’m with Bruno. Ricki and Derek’s ‘Psycho” tango has been my favorite. Which dance has been your favorite this season?). Bruno points out how the dancers better not get their freestyle wrong and he is right. More below. Be sure to read the full story at the link.

“First week, the Viennese waltz, Rob Kar-Krashian! And here he is. In the final!” he (Goodman) said of Kardashian.

He also had his doubts about Lake, the former TV talk show host.

“Ricki Lake, I thought: ‘well, you know, is it going to work?’ She’s in her 40′s, you know, maybe a little overweight,” he said.

And then there was Martinez, the actor who was severely injured while serving with the U.S. Army in Iraq.

“The soldier. You know, no real dance background. You know, he’s just come out of a war zone. And then he’s on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’” Goodman added.

The competitors are going into their last dances under tremendous pressure. Martinez has the added worry of a twisted ankle that clearly affected his performance and scores this week.

“That is a major handicap,” judge Bruno Tonioli said. “So, hopefully, he’ll be able to do his best, you know. I don’t know.”

Judges’ Favorites
Tonioli’s personal favorite dance of the season has been Ricki Lake’s thrilling tango to the theme from the movie “Psycho.”

For Goodman, the favorite was Martinez’s instant jive. That performance was judge Carrie Ann Inaba’s favorite, too, although she was impressed by Kardashian’s Argentine tango.

The winner will be determined by a combination of judges’ scores and viewers’ votes.

Asked about the impact of social media on the judges, Inaba said she felt as though Facebook and Twitter allowed certain ideas to bloom – whether those ideas made sense or not.

“Sometimes I go to bed very sad about what I’m seeing people saying,” she said. “But they have a right to their opinion. That is … the beauty of our show. We judge what we think.”

The final opportunity to judge comes on Monday, when contestants get to show off the all-important freestyle. That’s the routine they get to choose, and it’s critical.

“If they get that wrong, they’re not going to win, that’s for sure,” Tonioli said.

DWTS Las Vegas Odds And New “Who Will Win” Season 13 Poll (VOTE)

Ok, the odds makers in Las Vegas have placed their bets. Below are the new wagers from OLBG. What do you think? Does this look about right or are they way off?

J.R. Martinez 1.47

Rob Kardashian 4

Ricki Lake 5.5

I’m a little surprised to see Ricki at 3rd instead of 2nd? Right now I think anything could happen though depending on how they dance? There is no room for any error…not even physically. Do you agree?

So, if you were to vote and bet on who will win Dancing With The Stars Season 13, who would you vote and bet for? Be sure to place your vote below so we can get some early numbers. Let us know in the comment section who you think will get 2nd and 3rd.

I’m voting for Rob to win. I think Ricki will come in at 2nd and J.R. in third. I think J.R.’s injury is going to hurt his chances.

Heidi’s Note: Nah, these guys haven’t been right all season long, except with JR – why would they be any different now. I think JR will win, barring misfortune, Ricki will be second and Rob will be third. But you know what? I wouldn’t be surprised if Ricki won…and I wouldn’t be surprised if Rob won…I wouldn’t be surprised by any combination of the three. I think, for the first time in a long time, it’s going to be CLOSE – UNLESS the judges do some serious ranking.  If they throw it to the viewers, then all bets are off.  If Rob and JR are splitting the votes for the male celebs, Ricki could come out ahead. Rob could win due to his own growing likeablity AND his sisters fanbases.  JR – well, he’s the whole package as well. Popular, a pro who’s never won, a great story, a great dancer.  I will be happy, regardless of who wins – and I think, for the first time in a long time, the contestants will likely say the same thing. Dont’ get me wrong – I think they all WANT to win, but I don’t get the sense that any of them will be devastated if they don’t. :-)  I’m very happy with this final three actually – so happy, I almost don’t care who wins.   That doesn’t mean I won’t vote for my favorite. ;-)
