DWTS Season 28, Week 1 – Dancing by the Numbers

I’m really not sure this is going to be a regular post this season, if the voting and the eliminations are going like they’re reportedly going to go tomorrow night. We’ll have to wait and see – I might end up with the numbers in the live blog and then having a “what happened” with the numbers sometime during the week after the show (unless it’s really obvious what happened). Hard to say. We’ll play it by ear. 🙂

So I’m hearing all kinds of complaints about the very low scoring paddles being used and the fact that the voting might all be live this season. To the former, I say – it’s about damn time!! Lamar and S__S_____ were NOT great and they didn’t deserve better than what they got. Of course, the judges still manage to screw up the middle of the pack (Kel and Ally get 16 but Lauren got a 19 and Mary got a 17??? Uhhhh…). As for the voting, and whatever the “new” elimination stuff is that is coming, it seems very clear to me what they’re trying to do – prevent another Bobby Bones. And I’m okay with that.  It’s not that they hate the west coast viewers – please. It’s not even that they “hate” Bobby Bones. It’s about the credibility of a dancing show which even FEWER people will watch if the actual dancers get voted off regularly. Does anyone actually WANT to watch Bobby dance besides his cult followers? Not me. And where do Bobby’s cult followers go when he’s off the show?? Do THEY still watch? I doubt it. Which would you prefer – all the good dancers getting eliminated because they don’t have a power fanbase or the ability to vote? Yes, yes, yes…the show has always been a popularity contest, but back in the day big fanbases were offset by the general viewing audience which tended to be MUCH larger. Combine the general viewer with the judges and most of the time, one of the better dancers won. Let’s face it, Bobby Bones beating ANY of the other top five from last season is pretty ridiculous.  If it got to be a regular thing, I would have no desire to watch the show, let alone blog about it.

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. :-)
