Dancing with the Stars Tue, Sep 20, 2005
If I've learned anything from watching VH1 (and I like to think I've learned a lot), I predict that in the very near future, we will look back on ABC's Dancing with the Stars with a feeling of ashamed, disgusted regret.  What an unbelievably stupid idea for a TV show.  The premise "is a totally unique and original series that pairs a celebrity with a professional dance partner as they train and then compete in front of a studio audience in a televised dance competition. The pairs will be judged by a panel of experts and also by viewers at home, with one couple being eliminated each week."  Apparently, this idea isn't American.  1 point for us.  It's "an international hit in several countries".  My question:  How?  What on earth is appealing about watching B- and C-list "celebrities" (term used loosely) dance in a competition?  Do we learn something from this?  Do people get blown up?  Are there sex scenes?  No.  No.  No.  Mark my words:  We will look back on this with regret. #entertainment
