DWTS Season 4 on GSN – Coming This Saturday, January 21st!!!

Are you guys ready for Apolo Ono and Julianne Hough?? Lalia Ali?? Joey Fatone??  Join us on a trip back to the spring of 2007!!  GSN will be airing back to back performance and results shows from Season 4 on Saturdays at 6pm Eastern (5 pm Central). And guess what?? Some of our most popular features are going to flashback to 2007 as well! This will take retrospective Cheesecake to a whole new level. :-) We can’t guarantee we’ll do it every single week, since Courtney and myself do enjoy our little vacations from the DWTS schedule, but we are thinking we will get flashes of inspiration from watching older seasons of the show. I’m seeing possible LOLz posts, some numbers just to see if how close (or not) eliminations were, and who knows what else? Maybe Courtney will be inspired to a “Who Wore it Better” in conjunction with Randall’s guest posts. Of course, it will help if you’re watching along with us. ;-)

And of course, we’ll keep watching out for rumors and innuendo. :-)

NOTE FROM COURT: If my DVR is correct, they’re going to be airing the season 4, week 1 & week 2 performance shows back-to-back, followed immediately by the week 2 results show.  So the cheese/WWIB/Randall’s Retrospective/etc will be covering those two weeks – be sure to watch them both :-)

While you wait, GSN’s Site has a new video to enjoy -

And then there’s the matter of pictures I got from GSN and neglected to post… :-)

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. :-)

Maksim Chmerkovskiy Planning To Return To Dancing With The Stars Next Season

According to a new interview with Maks at People.com, he is planning on returning next season for another shot at the mirror ball. Despite some rough edges last season, Maks says he loves the show and what it stands for. Below is a take where Maks voices that there are things he’s not extremely proud of, but, his imperfections and the “not-so-good” moments have made him who he is today.

“There were some things that I’m not extremely proud of, but I think that the imperfections and not-so-good moments are exactly what made me who I am,” he says.

It’ll be impossible to forget those moments since past competitions will begin airing on GSN (Game Show Network). The cable network will air seasons 4 through 14 beginning Jan. 21 on Saturdays at 6 p.m. ET/5 p.m. CT.

“There were some ups and downs, but every season had something interesting in it, whether it was the dynamic of a partnership or me speaking back to the judges,” says Chmerkovskiy.

Be sure to read the full story at People.com.

So, what do you think? Are you looking forward to another season with Maks if the powers that be hire him for another season? I hope Maks will be back and I’m still a fan of his dancing, but, I hope he’s truly learned some lessons from last season and he will rise above from here on out in being an example to those who look up to him. I also hope they pair him with a person who isn’t so much of a match to his personality like last season. I’m not making excuses, but, that had to be hard to deal with for both parties.

Heidi’s Comment: Well, he should have learned by now, one would think.  But, that said, I do appreciate that he recognizes that he has had some not good moments on the show. I didn’t get the feeling that he thought he had done anything that people could criticize last season. To acknowledge that is a sign of some growth, anyway.  As for coming back to the show – HE wants to, but that doesn’t mean it will happen. I personally think he could use a bit of a break. One season wouldn’t kill him. Or his fans. I’m living proof. :-)

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. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

‘Behind The Scenes’ Of The Game Show Network DWTS Photoshoot (Video)

What a treat this is!!! If you haven’t seen it yet, Entertainment Tonight has released a “behind the scenes” look of the Dancing With The Stars/Game Show Network photo shoot. Maks looks back at the previous seasons with passion and says they still “dance” the same passionate way today. ET also asks Maks who he wants for a partner for this upcoming season. He corrects the interviewer and says the pros don’t pick their partners. He just got lucky with Hope. Lacey says it will be fun looking back at the previous seasons, but, she will be embarrassed and will need to critique herself. Mel B says she’s so “over” Maks as he has tried to grope and dance with her again with their reunion(lol). Joking aside, she was so thankful for the experience because it got her in shape after having a baby. Derek reflects back on his favorite moments of lifting the mirror ball trophy. So cute…all of them! Lots more below….

Don’t forget, you can begin watching reruns of Dancing With The Stars on Jan. 21st at 6 p.m. ET on GSN. In the meantime, enjoy the Dancing With The Stars promo page which includes bios, photos, and videos at GSN here.

DANCING WITH THE STARS on GSN!! Starting January 21, 2012

This is just a tease for some upcoming information about DWTS on GSN.  I am working on getting a bit more information – as soon as I know it, you’ll hear about it.   From GSN:

GSN (Game Show Network) has an amazing gallery of stunning new original art—as well as revealing one-on-one, behind-the-scenes video interviews—with a buzzworthy group of DANCING WITH THE STARS celebrity alums and pro dancers from a variety of seasons, including reigning champ J.R. Martinez!

As we recently announced, GSN has acquired seasons 4-14 of DANCING WITH THE STARS, and we assembled a one-time only group of series veterans and dance pros to celebrate and promote our upcoming January 21 launch of the series.

….

GSN will kick off our airings of DWTS with Season 4 on Saturday, January 21, 2012, at 6:00pm ET/5pm CT.  Season 4 episodes will air back-to-back every Saturday night on GSN through March 3, 2012.
