Dancing with the Stars Season 23, Week 2 – LIVE BLOG!

Okay, folks, right now the site is running nice and quick – do me a favor and remember the show night rules. Post a comment and walk away for 5 or 10 minutes. Don’t hit refresh every 30 seconds. If it is loading slow for you, odds are it’s hell on me trying to live blog. Thanks.

So, what are we looking forward to tonight??

Yay Florence!! Cute concept for the dance but it looked like she missed a step here and there.

Decent score I think. Pardon me while I try to get into the swing of watching both the show AND All Access.

Poor Jana!! Power through girl. Read more..

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. :-)

Dancing with the Stars Season 23, Week 1 – Dancing by the Numbers!

I think I made most of my impressions pretty clear in the Live Blog for Week 1.  Sometimes they change over the course of the week and upon rewatching the show, but since I was away from home for more than 10 days, including last Monday night, I haven’t had a chance to rewatch.  Maybe next week.

Since there is a results show this Tuesday night, I assume that no one is eliminated until Tuesday. Is this an assumption?…runs to check the press release…okay, the press release said that the first elimination is on Tuesday night and is based on week 1 and week 2 scores and votes.  Of course, this means that this calculation of the numbers is only to show the standings (and my thoughts on who would go home) of week 1 only. I’ll have to do a quick DBTN update on Monday night to see if my thoughts on who’s leaving change based on Monday’s dances.  I love my sleep these days, so when there’s a results show it usually means a late night…for me and Courtney both. Anyway, look for the DBTN update at about 2 pm Eastern on Tuesday.  Courtney’s power rankings typically go up after the show or first thing Tuesday morning. When there is no results show, Courtney’s power rankings will go up on Tuesday and I shoot for Thursday. SHOOT FOR…I don’t always make it. 🙂 If you missed Court’s power rankings this week, just click the link to read them…when you’re done here. 😉 Read more..

New Commercial for DWTS Season 23, Week 2

Not sure how I feel anymore about “surprises” when it comes to this show. I don’t think these producers have the best track records when it comes to this sort of thing. 🙂

What Did Calvin Johnson’s Former Team Mates Think Of His First Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

What Did Calvin Johnson’s former team mates think of his first dance on Dancing With The Stars? Detroit Lion punter Sam Martin said a big group of them got together for an unofficial watch party on Monday night. He said Calvin killed it and he was “smooooth”. He voted for him and he asked the reporter if he did too. So cute! More at WXYZ.
