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.

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. Continue reading
Jeremy Lin needs no introduction. Lin himself even said he is overwhelmed with how much he has been covered in his short time in the spotlight thus far. He has been a starter for 8 games and Saturday Night Live is already opening the show with a spoof on him. Lin’s story has all the dynamics that would put him front in center as the top story
on a nightly basis worthy of the praise that he is getting. And do you know who would just love to have a little of that spotlight with him? No, not Kate Beckingsale, why would you even guess that? It’s Kim Kardashian, of course. Continue reading
