Dancing with the Stars Season 16, Week 6 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

So, this week’s gimmick is twitter voting for your favorite team dance – winner gets the encore. Jesus, will it ever end??   Listen up, DWTS, I’m on strike and I’m not participating in your stupid crap any more.  Also, regarding last weeks pimping of pros not on this season??  The ratings:

Week 2 – 14.47 million viewers/2.4 in the demo
Week 3 – 13.91 million viewers/2.2 in the demo
Week 4 – 13.15 Million viewers/2.1 in the demo (BBall Championships)
Week 5 – 13.4 Million viewers/2.2 in the demo

Yep, still a downward trend over all. Don’t get me wrong – still great ratings relative to TV in general. DWTS is still a top 10 show and sneaks into the Top 5 at times. But whatever they’re going for -it ain’t working. Except to piss people off. :-) And ensuring that Zendaya gets plenty of face time.

Did Andy and Victor reveal what they are dancing and I missed it?? Read more..

April 21, 2013 I Written By

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 Season 16, Weeks 4 and 5 – The Cheesecake Awards, SUPERSIZED!!

Well, it case you hadn’t figured it out, Courtney and I got overwhelmed last week and didn’t get the cheesecake baked before the next performance show. So this week you get a supersized version – twice as b#@chy and twice as long. ;-)  Well, maybe not twice as long…there aren’t that many things funny about this show any more. :-)

Week 4

The “YO! I said Shut UP!” Award: Carrie Ann Inaba whose mic wasn’t working when she was trying to critique Sean’s dancing

Heidi: I think someone’s trying to tell her something. Either Sean has magic powers or it’s not nice to diss the “family”. Or the production muppets fail again. Take your pick.

Courtney: I think they should dream up some sort of communication obstacle for her each week, just so we don’t have to listen to her self-righteous blathering.  Maybe one week, she’ll have to phrase all of her critiques in pig Latin; the next week, tell her she can’t use any verbs; the following week, she will only be allowed to use hand gestures.  Then I’d actually look forward to her critiques – for the pure comedy they would bring :-P

Heidi: “You ucksay and I inkthay I awsay a iftlay!”

The “You don’t look like a screamer” Award: Lindsay, for screaming her way through the Paso Doble with Victor

Heidi: Hey! That’s totally not what I meant! You people with dirty minds. :-) Anyway, I’m not so sure the “I’m a maniac” method works, particularly on guys like Victor. :-) Really, screaming at the top of your lungs?? You can see her yelling through out the entire dance!

Courtney: Poor Lindsay – she’s just terribly, terribly green when it comes to being a pro.  I highly doubt that if your celeb is messing up, yelling at him at progressively louder volumes is going to help.  And really, if he’s screwing up that bad in the first place – you probably haven’t done your job as a pro and gotten him rehearsed enough.  It’s times like these where I think to myself, “Would it have KILLED you guys to just put her in the troupe for a season or two?” 8-O Read more..
