I hope they don't see lack of viewers as being caused by SH leaving.
Ah. Same here. But from what I've seen in terms of who is going to be on this year, I don't think there will be as many viewers.

Re: Dancing With the Stars Season 10

I'm so disappointed about the pros that are missing. As long as Derek, Mark, and Cheryl are still around, I'll watch them but the others I'm just not that interested in. Although I'm excited to see how Evan Lysacek does. Although now that one Olympian has lost (Natalie last season) I guess the pressure to win isn't quite as bad.

Re: Dancing With the Stars Season 10

Well I watched it and thought it was fun for a first night. I thought Brooke did all right as the new co-host.

I'll just comment on Evan at this point, since I'm rooting for him. He did well with the V Waltz but I'm really worried for him in the Latin dances. I guess we'll see how much work he'll have to do in that regard after next week. Though come to think of it... I bet he could do a killer Paso...

I'm would like to see Evan do a Paso. Yes, that would fit him well. I heard Len was worse than usual last night. I'm still not watching, although as soon as ABC puts up the individual dances, I'll watch a couple of the stars on youtube.

I'm really glad Evan Lysacek is on there this season. He's real cute.

Re: Dancing With the Stars Season 10

I caved and watched most of it. I didn't see the last few dancers, but I saw enough.

Len started the night off being relatively considerate, but he got pretty rude by the end of the night.

I'll just comment on a few of the dances that I remember:

Cheryl and Chad: Chad's got rhythm but at this point, I don't think he has Emmit's potential. We'll see how he does in the future. He could go far, but he'll have to improve a lot to win.

Buzz and Ashley: Oh, poor poor Buzz. The man is 80, what is he doing on this show? He'll survive for a couple of weeks because he's adorable but hopefully we don't lose better dancers to him. That was really bad, he wasn't even on beat.

Nicole and Derek: Their dance was beautiful. Unfortunately for them, Len never likes Derek's choreography. He told Nicole that she didn't have any musicality or technique while Bruno and Carrie Ann raved about her beautiful lines and flow. She got two 9's in week one! How often does that happen?? She will go far.

Evan and Anna T: That was a great V Waltz. I agree with what others have said, I'm not sure how he'll on on the latin dances. The Waltz seems to have been right up his alley no matter what he says about spinning in the opposite direction and having to dance with someone instead of alone. The Latin dances will be entirely different from anything he's ever done.

Re: Dancing With the Stars Season 10

I just watched the few that interested me.

Chelsie, of course. I thought Jake did very well, and Chelsie should have given him more difficult choreo.

Shannen and Mark. Boy was she nervous. She's gotten pretty plump, too. Fantastic choreo from Mark. She did pretty well with it, considering.

Evan and Anna T. My favorite waltz music since Benji and Donyelle danced to it in sytycd's Magic Season 2. I would have expected smoother moves and transitions from Evan since he's a figure skater, but I guess that can work against him, too. He doesn't have that glide to carry him along.

Re: Dancing With the Stars Season 10

There's no doubt that he's a great skater, but I've never been a fan of Evan Lysacek's skating (just personal taste), so I'm not the biggest fan of his dancing either.

I'm still surprised that Kate Gosselin has gone from Jon & Kate Plus Eight to Dancing with the Stars.

Re: Dancing With the Stars Season 10

Was I the only one who enjoyed Erin & Maksim enough to comment on it? Because I thought it was delightful, and cast my votes for them as well as for Nicole&Derek and for Evan&Anna.

Edyta made me angry, though; during the interview and studio clips, I was thinking she & Aidan would be great together. I thought I saw a lot of potential for a super sizzling hot performance, but then she pulled that goofy trick of using her star as a prop for the pro to dance around!

Re: Dancing With the Stars Season 10

I watched part of the backstage interviews with Brooke. She needs to get over that annoying habit of interrupting the dancers before they've finished answering her question.

Re: Dancing With the Stars Season 10

I tried to watch it tonight. I really did. But Kate G? Come on. And why invite octogenarians on the show only to trash them when they can't keep up? I think Buzz did better than Kate.

Brook did okay tonight from the little I saw, and she knows how to wear an evening dress, unlike SH.

Re: Dancing With the Stars Season 10

I think it was a wash and Buzz has considerable audience sympathy. Kate does not. Scherzinger seems to have proven herself a frontrunner in these early stages, but I thought it was a bit early in the day for two tens.

TB said at the beginning of the show that if the eliminations were based only on last week's votes, there would have been a major upset. That says to me that the bottom of the leaderboard got more than enough votes to stay. Those sympathy votes took away from somebody who everyone thought was safe; not necessarily the front runner.

Agreed. Last season was quite far gone before anyone got tens.

Re: Dancing With the Stars Season 10

There have been times when tens made an early appearance, but the only performer that sticks out in my head as an early ten deserver is Kristy Yamaguchi (I hope I spelled that correctly).

Re: Dancing With the Stars Season 10

I agree that the judges should be a bit kinder to Buzz.

I was also bugged by the attitudes of some of the "celeb" contestants. They need to trust in their partners, especially those that have been on the show for a while. They not only know what they are doing in their professional lives, but also what it takes to teach people for this show.

Also, I never realized that the people coming on the show get to request their partners. That was news to me.

Re: Dancing With the Stars Season 10

Sometimes they can request, sometimes the producers have their own ideas--I think this time, it was a request that matched their intuition, so they honored it.

As we speak (or I type), Lacey and Dmitry are choreographing the pro numbers for Monday and Tuesday.

Re: Dancing With the Stars Season 10

Cool. I miss Lacey a little and Dmitry a lot!

And I was surprised by a couple comments by Derek & Nicole: they don't choose the music, either. I hadn't been aware of that. I'd been complaining about the pros choosing bad music, but what they're doing is choreo to whatever the producers throw at them? Who knew? Is this old information, and only people who started watching late in the game (like, in Season 7) were clueless?
