But let's not forget the elder statespeople who already had a stunning career behind them, only to come back into the public eye by participating in a reality show. Perhaps these celebrity veterans helped to pave the way for 'Sunset Daze,' a new show premiering April 28 at 10PM ET on WE tv that follows a group of people at a retirement community in Arizona's Sun City.
Lest you think it's all pudding and painkillers, rest assured there will be sex! Guns! Skydiving! And motorcycles!

(S10E05) The 'Dancing with the Stars' results night continues to chug along. While there was no Macy's Stars of Dance performance, we are given the information that Melissa Rycroft and Joey Fatone will be tango-ing to "Rock 'n Roll All Night." I never thought I'd hear that whole sentence together, the song doesn't even feel like the right tempo for a tango.
The results start off the bat again, and Aiden & Edtya and Erin & Maks are safe. I guess the horrible vocal performance of "Hey Soul Sister" didn't affect Aiden's voting. After fixing the opening graphics, the red room, and the co-host, somehow we couldn't hire better performers?
Len's recap had one interesting point of information: Len admits that he should have given Erin a six. I wish we also got to hear why Bruno gave Nicole a nine.
(S10E04) 'Dancing with the Stars' continues this week with three dances: Waltz, Quickstep, or Paso Doble. Along with the dances, each contestant had to create a storyline that would be told through the dance.
There was a slight readjustment of voting for the rest of the season for online voters, the voting cutoff is now 11am Eastern/8am Pacific the next day. I've never met anyone who actually voted the day after, but it is now one hour less than previously.
Professionals performance - We get an example of the three dances we see tonight, with Jonathan, Anna D., Lacey, and Dmitri. After watching the four perform, I already miss Lacey's hips. She could have had an interesting challenge with Chad or Aiden. Val, Maks' brother, also performs, and we'll probably see him on tomorrow's results show.
(S10E01) It's the tenth season of 'Dancing with the Stars' and, shockingly, five years have past since the first performance. I'm happy to see that the show finally made some interesting changes. The opening sequence doesn't cause me to have seizures from all the kaleidoscope spins, the graphics are now different, and the couples sit in a fish tank off to the side of the stage.
Speaking of couples, the eleven couples all looked nervous as they looked down the stairs, hoping they didn't trip and fall on live television. We get to see all the contestants perform one Latin and one Ballroom performance before anyone gets eliminated. This week the contestants will have to tackle either the Cha-Cha or the Viennese Waltz.
This is the first episode for Brooke Burke as Tom's co-host. Burke did a decent job replacing Samantha Harris, but in all reality, I'm still not paying attention to the post-dance interviews.
More casting news after the jump.
The celebrity cast of 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 10 has been announced. ABC wisely trimmed the cast down from 16 to 11. Hopefully this will get rid of the unnecessary double eliminations.
On paper, this season's cast feels like the celebrities have a higher caliber. They are at least closer to B-listers than just washed-up celebrities. This balances out the reality TV stars that stretch the definition of "Star." I have come to terms with the fact that Kate Gosselin will end up on my television in one way or another with the excuse that she's doing it for her kids. The full list after the jump.
With that in mind, the History Channel will premiere 'America: The Story of Us' in 2010, an epic 12-part series examining how this nation of average citizens, not royalty, have determined its course from the very beginning.
According to Variety, Meryl Streep and Michael Douglas are among a starry list of narrators confirmed for the series, which draws talent from Hollywood and politics. Other narrators will include former Secretary of StateColin Powell and NBC anchor Brian Williams.
"I blame the fantastic and unbelievable shows about space flight and rocket ships that are on today," Aldrin said in an interview at the TCA. "All the shows where they beam people around and things like that have made young people think that that is what the space program should be doing. It's not realistic."
