Dancing with the Stars

Yeah, okay, so I have two favorite reality shows. I don't recall there being a limit on favorite shows. I'm entitled!

It does get a little difficult when you're trying to watch both shows at the same time, but the networks have been working together to avoid as much overlap as they can.

Here's my take on this year's Dancing with the Stars competition:

Elizabeth Shannon -- okay, but not much beyond that.

Priscilla Presley -- really surprised me. She's in her sixties, but did some stuff out there I wouldn't have expected from a forty-year-old. I don't think she'll win, but I think she'll give us consistently good performances.

Steve Gutenberg -- he's charming. And that's about all I have to say.

Marlee Matlin -- despite being deaf, she pulled off a great performance. She's going to be around for a while.

Monica Selles -- she's a good tennis player. Moving on . . .

Marissa Jaret Winokor -- looked like she was having fun.

Kristi Yamaguchi -- impressed the bejeebers out of me. She's definitely going to be one to watch this season.

Penn Jillette -- is huge and looks like a bear. Dances like one, too.

Adam Corolla -- is funny, but not much of a dancer.

Jason Taylor -- when I first saw that we had another football player on the show, I was really not sure what to think. I didn't love Jerry and Emmett like everyone else did. But Jason -- wow!! He can really move.

Cristian de la Fuente -- did a reasonably good job.

Mario -- again, surprised me! The youngest in the competition, he's got some serious moves.

Predictions: If things continue the way they began, we're going to have Mario, Jason, and Kristy in the finale. My guess to be eliminated the first round: Penn.

I keep hearing about how wonderful Dancing With the Stars is. Can you believe it when I say that I haven't seen it before? We have an old fashioned antenna on the top of our house with a cable running into the basement and up to the TV. Something happened to our reception over 3 months ago and I haven't watched TV since. Maybe it has to do with the snow or the cable froze. I don't know but it's been nice having all this extra time to blog.

I love that show. Much more than American Idol. (I know, I just blasphemed there. Sorry.) I agree with you on the men. I love Penn and thought he did a great effort, but yes, his time is very limited.

Something freaky happened to my TV and it didn't record the women's night. So thanks for the quick review there. It was about what I was expecting.

I only caught the ending but I think you're right.

I'm reading this after the fact but isn't it nice to right? I agree that Priscilla is surprisingly good but I can't watch her. It's that frozen mouth of hers. I think it's a good reason to avoid Botox or whatever she's injecting. I'm afraid Steve Gutenberg won't be around too long because his partner is too mouthy. I think the viewers vote against people who come across too harsh and so some of the nicer pros have an edge. Steve could stay a couple of weeks just based on charm, not necessarily ability.
