Variety Interviews Tom Bergeron and Nigel Lithgow About “Good” Reality Shows

Sorry, I can’t come up with the titles that Vogue can. :-) This is a pretty darn good interview – I’ve put an excerpt below, but I recommend reading the whole thing over at Variety.com. Click teh link! Of course, there is a whole lotta IRONY in the very first paragraph… ;-)

 

Variety: What makes for a good reality show?
Lythgoe: Honesty.
Bergeron: I agree. In the case of “Dancing” being a live show, the camera is very unforgiving. If there’s a dishonest emotion attempting to pass itself as sincerity, you’ll be found out. Honesty is what will endear you to and connect you to the viewer.
Lythgoe: And I think the more that stars now are going on to be judges, it’s tougher for them to be as honest as a Simon Cowell, for instance, who really didn’t give a damn if you liked him or not. You weren’t going to buy his records and you weren’t going to go to his concerts. Now I think when some of the celebrities go out there, they’re frightened they’re going to lose fans.
Bergeron: I think that’s true.
Lythgoe: None of your judges are worried about that. Len (Goodman) is always honest.
Bergeron: And Bruno (Tonioli), God knows what he’s on.
Lythgoe: He’s gotten more flamboyant!
Bergeron: I told him one time on the air, you’re about one emotion away from living in Pixar.
Lythgoe: That’s a great line.

Variety: What’s the hardest part of your jobs?
Bergeron: Waiting to do it again between seasons. Seriously. I’m never happier than when I can go on to that stage on a live TV show knowing that anything can happen. An Osmond faints, you go with it. This is going to be terrible for my next contract negotiation, but there’s no real hard part to my job. I love it.
Lythgoe: Being live and not knowing what you’re going to say until you see the kid dancing. And then realize that your mouth is a lot slower than your brain. And then the second hardest thing is sitting next to Mary Murphy. My ears bleed sometimes.
Bergeron: And our hearts for you.

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. :-)

First Couple Of Weeks Of DWTS Will Be “One Packed, Spray-Tanned Sausage”, More Rehearsal Arrival Photos

Dancing With The Stars Tom Bergeron talked to Yahoo TV about the new season and all of the new changes coming. He comments that his new cohost, Erin Andrews, will be “great at both sideline and quick interviews and such.” Tom also commented that the first couple of weeks of the show will be “one packed, spray-tanned sausage” (LOL!). Monday promises to be “quite the adventure” when the show goes LIVE! Below is more….

After revealing that last season’s crowded celebrity holding area, the Glitter Pit, would be no more (“Hallelujah!” he said of the pit’s demise), Bergeron hinted at what the celeb hangout will look like in the new season: “A version of the skybox will be there. I don’t know if it will be the old celeb-aquarium, but it’ll certainly be more like the celeb-aquarium than the Glitter Pit,” he said. “These are all words I never thought I’d use in a sentence.”

The popular TV host seemed particularly excited about the star-studded cast for the upcoming season, which includes “Wonder Years” sweetheart Danica McKellar, “Star Wars” icon Billy Dee Williams, and five athletes.

“Particularly to have [Olympic gold medalists] Meryl Davis and Charlie White, they’ve been together 17 years as partners, and this is the first time they’ve split up and they’ll be competing against each other,” Bergeron said. “A lot of interesting possibilities with this cast.”

But when it comes to another big change this season — the midseason partner switch — even the show’s longtime host is in the dark.

“I went into the office last week, and they were being very secretive about it, and I don’t know if it’s going to be for a week or two or the balance of the season,” Bergeron said. “It’s something we’ve never done before, so it’ either [going to] be amazing or a train wreck. In both cases you got good TV.”

Reading his words gets me even more excited for the new season. Be sure to read the full article at Yahoo TV. Also, if you’d like to see more pics of the cast arriving to rehearsals this weekend, see the Daily Mail here and here.
