Dancing with the Stars Season 28, Week 2 – LIVE BLOG

T-minus 15 minutes to the Eastern/Central time zones live broadcast of DWTS.  I did that specially for you western and mountain time zone folks. If you are so inclined, you can start voting when we do based on last weeks dances. Don’t tell me you don’t already have one person you want to see stay. That’s right, you’re not voting for the winner tonight, just people you want to stick around for another week. So put on your big girl and big boy pants and VOTE. 🙂

Here we go…pep talk by Ray to the celebs. Mildly humorous. 🙂

They all look pretty good  – don’t see any tragic outfits yet.

Brand new this season is the text voting – text the name to 21523.

They’ll reveal the bottom two at the end of the night, the judges will save one of the bottom two. No dance off. They’re emulating SYTYCD. 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. :-)

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.

PureDWTS Season 28, Week 1: Power Rankings

So we wrapped up the premiere of the “new, improved!” DWTS a little over 24 hours ago, and I’ve got some mixed feelings. My main concern: in the wake of the disastrous year the show had in 2018, they’re currently trying to reinvent/rebrand the show to give ratings a boost and maintain a hope and a prayer of this show surviving into 2020.  The only problem? I feel like the rebranding involves just turning DWTS into Strictly Come Dancing 2.0.

Yes, they’re essentially the same show, in terms of the concept, aesthetic, etc. But Heidi and I have long been reminding people that comparing DWTS and SCD is a bit like apples and oranges, because the fact that the two shows air in completely different markets makes each take on slightly different flavors. Americans and Brits are two different cultures that have different tastes when it comes to television – I have yet to meet an American that understands the appeal of British soap operas (I can’t tell you how many times I fell asleep trying to watch the same god-forsaken episode of EastEnders in college because a girl in my dorm was from London and swore up and down that it was the greatest TV show ever), while I’ve heard more than one Brit puzzle about why American television is so violence-driven (same girl in my dorm was CONVINCED we all carried guns on our person because she had watched 24 before coming to college). And there’s obvious differences between our humor, with British humor being quite a bit drier and high brow than more crass, slapstick American humor. Given all those differences – would it be a stretch to assume that  Americans expect different things out of DWTS than Brits do out of SCD?

With respect to DWTS and what I’ve observed in my 10 years of blogging, I tend to think Americans care less about how many syllabus steps a routine has and care more about being entertained and wowed by a memorable dance. I know SCD is more driven by syllabus content and correct execution of the steps, and low-scoring of non-compliant routine is more commonplace than it is here in the US, where it’s unusual to see any paddle lower than a “6” taken out after week 1. So for things to shift rather suddenly from the DWTS focus on entertaining and memorable dance numbers to a more content-driven approach from the judges, I have to wonder: is this sh*t gonna fly…? Some of the best choreographers we’ve seen on DWTS are the ones that really thrive when they’re unfettered by syllabus  requirements – think Derek, Mark, and Julianne, who all ended up Emmy nominated at some point as a result. We’ve still got a few pros in the current stable that I think choreograph best in a more out-of-the-box setting – namely Jenna, and possibly Brandon. Then again, with the prospect of an Emmy nom a distant memory since the departure of Derek and the onslaught of more competition in the Outstanding Choreograhy category…maybe it’s time to start focusing more on content? I honestly don’t know – but I’m not sure the answer to all of DWTS’ problems is just tweaking everything to match SCD. Time will tell, especially after we hear about this new elimination twist next week…

One good thing to come out of the “let’s do it like SCD!” gambit? The delayed reveal of the partnerships left us more  likely to get unexpectedly WOWED by some of the contestants – and I daresay with all the chatter about Hannah, Karamo, Kel, and Sailor, I did NOT see James coming at all. I was genuinely and delightedly surprised, which was nice. I also didn’t head into this season with a favorite – there were a few contestants/partnerships I found intriguing, but nobody that I knew from the jump I’d be voting for…so I felt like I was seeing everything with fresh eyes. But shall we get on with the rankings?  🙂 Read more..

DWTS Season 28 Night One – Media And Interviews Before Showtime!!

We’re only hours away from the premiere of Dancing With The Stars Season 28. While we wait, check out some press things below and be sure to keep checking back as the day progresses as we may be adding more….

Celebrity Insider has gathered up some quotes from Christie Brinkley for how excited her family is to see her dance include former husband Billy Joel.

For those interested, The New Yorker talked with Sean Spicer about Dancing With The Stars. It sounds like he’s having a lot of fun and may not be that “cringey”. Read on….

He was joined that day by his professional dance partner, who has been featured on many seasons of “Dancing with the Stars.” (Her name will be revealed on the season’s première.) “Sean’s really persistent, but he doesn’t have a lot of upper-body-isolation movement,” she said. She wondered if he’d been practicing. “Be honest. Did you work on this while I was gone?” she asked him. Then she said, “We got a shimmy down—like a little chest pop—but his body just does not move that way. It’s not even that he needs to learn how to do it, it’s just that he doesn’t have the flexibility for it.”

Spicer defended his learning style. “I’m very visual when I learn,” he said. “I’m not one of those people who can, like, read directions. If I get a set of directions, instead of reading it, I YouTube it.” Spicer likes to watch a tape of each day’s rehearsal and study what he needs to improve.

Did he see any parallels between dancing on TV and his tenure as press secretary? “None,” he said. “Well, maybe puns: like, dancing around things?” He said that, when he watched clips of himself giving press briefings, “I would go, Oh, wow, I didn’t realize I came off that way. I should’ve kept that answer tighter.” The rehearsal studio is on the other side of the Potomac from the Holocaust Museum (Spicer once referred to Auschwitz as a “Holocaust center”) and from the Martin Luther King, Jr., memorial (he once told the press that “just the other day” Trump “sat down with civil-rights leader M.L.K., Jr.”).

“No,” he said. “Well, I know that it’s fast, and a little Latin.”

“It’s a sharp, accented dance,” she told him. “We saw the fun Spicey, but this is serious.”

The producer wanted to start again at the knee slide. Spicer’s partner gave him some notes. “I’d rather you slide only, like, two inches, and have a big moment,” she said. “I’d rather have it be a mini slide than a massive fall.”

Afterward, they solemnly watched the first take on a monitor.

“The slide looks like it’s just checking the box,” Spicer said, dejected.

“You’re O.K.,” his partner said. “Nothing’s worse than a cringey moment, and I’m not seeing you do that. It looks clean, and it doesn’t look painful.”
