PureDWTS Season 19 Mini-Spoiler O’ the Day – Sept. 7

Trying not to start this post out on a sour note (especially since it’s NFL Sunday and that makes me happy!), but a bit of a PSA given some of the tones of the comments I’ve been seeing in the past week or so: try not to be a Debbie Downer, mmmmkay? We realize that not everyone is as thrilled with the show as we are, and that’s ok – but if you see that everyone here is excitedly discussing this season’s cast and who their favorite is, do you really need to (or feel it’s appropriate to) butt in and throw something out like “Psssh, this season’s cast is lame and I’m not watching!” It’s kind of like being at a party and walking up to a group of people talking about their favorite Michael Jackson song, and saying (without being solicited to do so) that “Michael Jackson sucks.” It’s a buzzkill.  Don’t be a buzzkill, k? It’s not about suppressing your opinions – it’s about finding the right way (and time, and place) to express them.  CBS cares 🙂

Now that we’ve got that business out of the way, on with the spoilers!!!

So we already know that the dreaded Twitter vote (and the dreaded partner switch) are back in play this season.  What other cockamamie ideas might we see again? Sounds like the dance-offs and the “picking dances for other couples” are potentially back on the table as well, along with something called the “live save” (???) and “audience judging”.  Given that these are still in the conceptual phase and not many details are known, we don’t know exactly what these will entail – but if we had to guess, the “live save” might be either a judges’ save or a Twitter vote to save one of the couples in the bottom 2; as for the “audience judging”, my only guess is that the couples might be getting a 5th score courtesy of Twitter voting or something like that.  Again, don’t know any details – and remember, these ideas might not actually come to fruition.  We know that all too well from trying to keep up with all of the plans that changed behind-the-scenes during the all-star season.  😯 Discuss…
