Enough With The Stars

Last night was the finale of "Dancing With The Stars", out of curiosity, I tuned into the last five minutes to see who would win. I can't believe I tuned in, but I did. It's like last year when I watched a couple episodes of "Skating With The Stars"--a show that should never be viewed EVER! I think they also had a pilot or may have even shown a couple episodes of "Cooking With The Stars".

About "Dancing With The Stars" and it's credibility--look how far Jerry Springer got. I'm no dancing expert. In fact I couldn't distinguish between a tango, foxtrot or waltz (why I even knew three dance names, I don't know. I literally gave myself an enema and those names fell onto the floor). However, I did know that Mr. Springer could not dance--at all. I've the "I'm drunk" dance at a club which had more rhythm. But for some odd reason, he remained in the competition. I know that he has a huge fan base, and it probably propelled him thru the few weeks that he remained a contender. But I think that he may have been kept on for entertainment value. He admitted himself that he couldn't dance, jokingly saying that it was cruel to keep him on so long.

You know, I just realized that for someone who despises a show and it's premise so much, I know an awful lot about it. I may just be one of the many counted Nielson ratings viewers that keep a show like this going.

Anyway, the point of my post was suppose to be how many more shows can we get out of work celebrities and semi-famous wanna-bes to do? These reality shows are the "Love Boat" and "Fantasy Island" of the year 2000.

  • Yeah these shows pretty much freak me right out. Mario Lopez is still considered a celeb?? So weird.

  • Trust me Angel, they are going to keep cranking out these pieces of crap as long as people keep watching. I have never watched a minute of Dancing.

  • It's amazing to me some of the people that are classified as "stars" or celebrities. I gues being on the D-List counts though.

  • I'd much rather see someone dancing with an actual star. We've got the computer animation technology to make it plausible, so why not do it? Swing your partner 'round the Andromeda! A great time for the whole family!

  • I loved The Love Boat and Fantasy Island !!!
    I'm with you on "Skating With The Stars" ... that was terrible.
    Don't know about your Dancing With The Stars, but ours has mostly B Grade celebrities ... no-one really important, and if you don't watch the TV station that televises the program much, you won't know half the "stars" on the show !!
    Anyway, have a great week.
    Take care, Meow

  • Oh man, now I just have you doing the drunk dance in my head - and it's awesomely off-beat.
