Last week, Dancing With The Stars fans finally got a little juice. Melissa Gilbert’s perplexing trip to the emergency room was just one of a handful of interesting story lines put together as the celebrity show drives on, along with Sherri Shepherd’s tearful elimination.
The View co-host, Shepherd was in the bottom two after an up and down performance last Monday. I personally didn’t think she was going to be eliminated, but I’m certainly not someone who would vote to save her either. Continue reading
American Idol judges were willing to do what voters weren’t on Thursday: keep Jessica Sanchez in the competition.
Despite being voted off the show by fans, Idol judges used their critical save on Sanchez keeping her in the show for at least another week.
The choice came a week after judges weren’t able to come to a consensus on DeAndre Brackensick and he was sent home. Continue reading
American Idol hopefuls Hollie Cavanagh and Elise Testone escaped by the skin of their teeth last week, avoiding elimination on Thursday night.
Jennifer Lopez’s mini crush DeAndre Brakensick was the sacraficial lamb despite having a more-consistent show althogether than Cavanah and Testone. Voters seem to be turning on Testone after a rough performance last week. Alas, she survived, but that did nothing for her (or Cavanagh’s) odds to win the entire show as both remain at the basement of American Idol Betting Odds. Continue reading
Don’t hit panic just yet.
The Voice is still one of the most popular singing competions on the tube. But after broadcasting the first live elimination show, it’s a bit of a red flag that the ratings have dipped to a season low audience.
In Monday’s first live elimination, the popular battle-royale singing competition drew 4.1 adult male viewers last week, dominating the crucial 8 pm timeslot. That might change tonight with two of the show’s front runners performing for their proverbial. Continue reading
The 14th season of Dancing With the Stars has been as exciting and interesting as any season in recent memory. With three weeks in the books, it’s safe to say that the fat has officially been somewhat trimmed now that we have had our first elimination of the process. While Martina Navratilova and Tony Dovolani put up an undeniably valiant effort, their consistently low scores (particularly in week two when they hit rock bottom) meant that they simply couldn’t be kept around. Continue reading
When the Dancing with the Stars contestant list is finally decided, it almost seems a guarantee that it will include a football player. The long list of Emmitt Smith, Jason Taylor, Ocho, Warren Sapp, Hines Ward, Jerry Rice, and Kurt Warner just got a little longer with Donald Driver joining the cast. Driver is the old reliable receiver on the Green Bay Packers that has the longest tooth on the team. Even with the experience of a career built on great footwork, his odds of making a smooth transition to dance are predicting he’s no Emmitt Smith. Bovada.com is putting Driver behind William Levy and Jaleel White with 5/1 odds to win Dancing With The Stars. Continue reading
There are so many talent/singing competition shows on television these days it makes me want to read books. Every time I watch a TV show on Fox, I see an advertisement 8 times about “American Idol” and with NBC it’s the same story but with the “The Voice”. I mean, it’s really great you are trying to find the best singer in the world and all, but shows have already searched and found them like 22 times. So now when people win I just think “Oh, you’re the 23rd best person to be picked”. With female artist Melania Amaro winning last year, will it be another woman that repeats? Bovada.com has the X Factor USA betting odds at EVEN for a female to take the title, +120 for a male, and an interesting line of +400 for a group. Continue reading
This year’s American Idol has started to show signs of the fatigue from fans that comes with running a show this long. Ratings have dipped, even though the judges are still popular among viewers. The favorite to win this year, scruffy guitarman Phillip Phillips, is getting 7/2 odds to win American Idol, the recording contract and chance of a lifetime (that 10 others have won also) by bovada.com. The man proclaimed by J. Lo to be “blessed by god”, Jeremy Rosario, is sitting completely opposite at the bottom with 30/1. Continue reading
Urkel is about to do that.
Actor Jaleel White, who came to fame for his portrayal of the ne’er-do-well clutz Steve Urkel in the 90s sitcome Family Matters, will be one of 11 contestants on Dancing With The Stars Season 14. A competition centered around grace and charisma – two things White made a living doing the opposite. Continue reading
Besides being a bonafide ratings monster for ABC, Dancing With The Stars has also become something of a cultural phenomenon over the last few years. Since the show’s inception in 2005, its seemingly simple premise of pairing up a celebrity with a professional dancer and watching said celebrity develop as a dancer has become an undeniable television mainstay.
