(S10E10) With Kate Gosselin gone from 'Dancing with the Stars,' the show can finally get to actual competition. Her disappearance from the bottom of the score board has now vanquished scores below 20. The contestants have two dances: either the Samba or Argentine Tango and the Swing Dance Marathon.

(S10E08) An interesting little marquee decorates the 'Dancing with the Stars' stage representing movie night. While most of the cast get interesting movies that could channel actual dances moves ('Pulp Fiction,' 'The Breakfast Club,' 'Risky Business'), Chad Ochocinco was given the Disney favorite 'The Jungle Book.' After all these weeks of sexual tension with Cheryl, they couldn't give him 'Shaft' or connect with his football roots with 'Remember the Titans' as their song?

'Dancing with the Stars' - 'Performance #3' Recap

Jake trips on Dancing with the Stars(S10E06) The format of 'Dancing with the Stars' continues to borrow from other reality shows by creating different themes each week. This week the contestants will be scored by both technique and performance. The scores are still out of a 30. For the rumba and the tango, the judges will be looking for three specific dance moves.

As the couples walk down the stairs, Maks tries to signal someone by tugging his ear and almost trips down the stairs. Kate continues to tell her children that she loves them via bad hand signs.

I had a problem with Brooke tonight. Not only did the crossing ribbons on her midsection make her look fat, was she pronouncing celebrity names incorrectly? Luckily, the filler this week were very interesting demos from professionals that didn't make the cut this season.

Johnny Weir Talks Evan Lysacek on 'Chelsea Lately'A chat about Johnny Weir's roommate situation in the Olympic Village took an intriguing turn last night on 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!).

"I know Evan Lysacek is the other [American male figure skater], do you two get along?" asked host Chelsea Handler.
"No," Johnny quickly replies.
"But you did roommate [sic] with his ex-girlfriend or girlfriend?"

Johnny gives a knowing glance her way and says, "...his 'ex-girlfriend' Tanith." Then he ventures a subtle wink to Chelsea but the camera catches it for everyone to see.

Bonnie Hunt Flirts With Olympic Figure Skater Evan Lysacek (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 18th 2010 9:18PM
Is Bonnie Hunt going out with a bang now that 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated) is coming to an end? A couple of days ago she engaged in some sexual innuendo with Olympic figure skater and Food Network star Brian Boitano and on Thursday's show she began to flirt with Olympic figure skater champion Evan Lysacek (we're beginning to see a pattern here).

And what's most interesting of all, Lysacek (25 years Hunt's junior) flirted back. "I feel like you're flirting with me and I want to know if you're on the market?" Hunt asked him. "I am flirting with you, correct," Lysacek said. "On the market, correct."

Go Bonnie!

'Dancing With the Stars': Who Waltzes Away With a Win?

Pamela AndersonIt's that time again. The celebrities have been gathered from across the sports and entertainment spectrum to show off their ballroom skills (or lack thereof) on season 10 of 'Dancing With the Stars' (Mon., March 22, 8PM ET on ABC).

This year, there aren't any outsized fan bases among the participants, as there was last season with Donny Osmond, who took home the show's mirror-ball trophy over competition that was a little more polished on the dance floor. Hopefully, that means the results will be decided more by dance ability than popularity. Here's how we rank the season 10 contestants and their odds of winning:

Gold Medal Figure Skater Evan Lysacek's Routine Is for the Birds (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 6th 2010 4:21AM
Olympic gold medal figure skater Evan Lysacek revealed the genesis of his winning routine: watching birds.

On 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' Lysacek told DeGeneres that while figuring out how to skate to Igor Stravinsky's 'Firebird,' he was having difficulties relating to the bird movements. "All of a sudden theese birds fluttered on to a window sill," he told DeGeneres. As he watched them, he thought, "Oh my God, they're doing my routine." And he began to observe them and mimic the bird moves.

Evan Lysacek, Top Ten List, David LettermanOlympic gold medal winner Evan Lysacek presented the Top Ten List on 'Late Show With David Letterman' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). The figure skater had plenty of thoughts that ran through his mind during his Olympic routine.

Our favorite? Number six: "A gold medal could help me achieve my real dream: 'Snoopy on Ice.'" We bet that's what most of those figure skaters hope to achieve one day. You know, now that they've got those crazy Olympics out of the way.

'Dancing with the Stars' Season Ten Odds

by Michael Pascua, posted Mar 2nd 2010 7:46PM
Evan LysacekThis season of 'Dancing with the Stars' has had some interesting choices for celebrities. Not all of the celebrities start on equal footing, some have musical backgrounds, some have physical prowess, and others have strong fan bases. Here's my odds for who will win from who has the worst to who has the best chances.

Buzz Aldrin
Claim to Fame - Walked on the moon
Professional Partner - Ashley Costa (formerly known as Ashley Del Grosso)
Professional's Best Finish - Third (Joey McIntyre, Season One)
Analysis - While I hope Buzz will last longer than a week, it seems unlikely that he can keep up with the younger competitors. The last time he was on television, during the pilot episode of 'Live for the Moment' he looked fit, but he's not a spring chicken. He will be a sentimental favorite, but clearly not the winner.
Odds of winning - 1000:1

New Cast for 'Dancing With the Stars' Revealed

by Michael Pascua, posted Mar 2nd 2010 8:00AM

Kate GosselinThe 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.

Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek On Not Doing a Quad Jump (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 24th 2010 12:20AM
Larry King Live, Evan Lysacek, Winter OlympicsGeez, a guy wins a gold medal and all he gets is grief. Figure skater Evan Lysacek is getting six kinds of misery from Russian silver medalist Evgeni Plushenko for not doing a quad jump in his routine.

Lysacek has his reasons. On 'Larry King Live' (weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN), he explained that he had a stress fracture in his left foot last year, which started bothering him while training the quad prior to the Olympics.

"I didn't want my Olympics to be the same experience as I had at the World Championships, where I was wondering if I'd get through it. So the solution was just to alleviate the pressure on the left foot and take just that one element out."

And we just have to mention that Lysacek looks like he jumped out of a British rock band from 1962, which is not at all a bad thing.

Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford discussed the tight race for Olympic gold in men's figure skating between Evgeni Plushenko, Evan Lysacek and Daisuke Takahashi on the fourth hour of 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC). And, perhaps not surprisingly, talk turned quickly to the physique of the skaters, particularly their rear ends.

"Have you ever seen such glutes?" Kotb asked. Then, a composite image of each skater's posterior is shown, eliciting a loud reaction from Kotb.
