What You Missed Last Night: dancin' fools on Real Housewives of NYC

by Bob Sassone, posted May 6th 2009 6:30PM
If you were to summarize any of the Real Housewives shows, it would be "stupid people doing stupid things for stupid reasons." Is there ever anyone on these shows that you actually like? In this clip from last night's season finale of Real Housewives of New York City, Ramona (love these names) goes all loopy ("it's a cocktail party, not a disco party!") and then dances with some guy (check out Bravo's site if you can't see this video). Um ... enjoy?

Monk: Mr. Monk Falls in Love

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 23rd 2008 9:44AM
Mr Monk falls in love(S07E06) This was a rarity in the Monk canon. It was not only a serious episode, but one in which Monk seemed capable of touching another person and falling in love again. The title of the episode, in fact, suggests that he does fall in love.

There were other differences in tonight's show. The murder of the taxi driver brought Stottlemeyer and Disher to the case, and Natalie and Adrian, but also a San Francisco Homicide task force -- i.e. two other detectives.

Have we ever seen these guys before? I don't remember them. They were there for one reason basically, to contradict Monk's assertion that the prime suspect -- Layla with a Z, a beautiful social worker -- is not the "guy." In the face of mounting evidence, Monk refused to believe she did it.

Swingtown: Get Down Tonight

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 16th 2008 10:01AM
Josh Hopkins -Swingtown(S01E11) Roger and Susan finally had that moment. After eleven episodes, when he showed up in her kitchen and said what we've been waiting to hear him say -- "I love you, Susan" -- it was cathartic. Done to the tune of Carole King singing, "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" Swingtown grabbed me by the throat, leaving me dying to see what would happen next. Only that was the end of the show.

I guess that's a good thing, being on the edge of my seat, hungry for more. Of course the next episode is two weeks away and probably the last of the show unless CBS deigns to bring it back in 2009. Based on the level of interest I have and I've seen from readers, Swingtown has earned a second season.

But I digress, let's get back to "Get Down Tonight." There was an awful lot of getting down, including the kids. BJ and Ricky had a hot game of strip poker with Sam and her very mature cousin Lisa. Not surprisingly, Ricky was all bluff and ran for the hills when things got too advanced, while BJ showed again that he's a real mensch (Yiddish for a quality person).

Dan Marino will NOT be Dancing with the Stars

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 7th 2008 2:43PM
D MarinoI knew it! In fact, in the comments to Bob's post about who was rumored to be booked for the new season of Dancing with the Stars, I wrote the following: "I love Dan Marino. He's always been one of my all time favorites, but he was known for his arm and quick release, not his footwork!! If Danny is one of the contestants, only his blue eyes will keep him on past round one. I think In Touch is out of touch about this name!"

Well, today Dan Marino's spokesman officially denied the rumor. While Dan was watching the Miami Dolphins scrimmage, his rep told the press that for every year since the show began, Dancing with the Stars has invited Dan Marino to find the dancer in his soul, and every year he's turned them down. Good for Dan.

My day at the first school in the world dedicated to art of appearing on reality TV shows. (Yes, this actually exists)

by Jay Black, posted Jun 27th 2008 1:41PM
Yes, it's a real thing. No, really, it is.As an intro to my article about The New York Reality TV School, I've asked Red from The Shawshank Redemption to narrate my opening paragraph:

I wish I could tell you that the New York Reality TV School fought the good fight, and that the students in attendance were not a collection of mostly desperate people whose desire for fame burned more strongly than their sense of dignity. I wish I could tell you that, but the entertainment industry is no fairy-tale world.

Thanks Red. Now, if you, the reader, would be so kind as to click through to the article, it would mean a lot to me. Not because I get paid more for click-throughs (I don't; AOL pays me a flat rate of 60 cents plus a pound of corn husks for every post I make, regardless of the number of clicks), but because I spent three hours attending the inaugural class of the NYRTV school last Saturday. I just couldn't take it if the end result of that is an article no one reads...

So You Think You Can Dance: Top 20 perform

by Kristin Sample, posted Jun 12th 2008 12:04PM
The Top 20
(S04E06) The first night of performances and we've got a lot to consider. Nigel and Mary were joined by hip-hop choreographer Dan Karaty at the judges table and they led us through ten couples. We saw everything from smooth waltz to Broadway. And only one thing is for certain: it's going to be a tough competition. As Dan said in the beginning of the show, there are no front runners.

But after the ten couples strutted their stuff, the pack of ten had some leaders. Find out what happened last night on So You Think You Can Dance after the jump.

So You Think You Can Dance: Charleston and Washington, D.C. auditions

by Kristin Sample, posted May 30th 2008 12:02PM
Dan Karaty, Mary Murphy, and Nigel Lythgoe
(S04E03) Last night we joined Cat, Nigel, Mary, and Tyce in Charleston, South Carolina for more auditions. I, for one, am getting sick of the two-hour audition shows already. We talked about this last week and I have to point it out again: maybe if they showed more dancing, these audition shows would be better.

Cat assured us at the beginning of the program that Charleston would not disappoint as SYTYCD went there in season two. Who did they find in South Carolina? Natalie, Dimitri, finalist Heidi and none other than Travis Woll, season two's runner-up. In the second hour, Mary and Nigel headed to D.C. where they were joined by Dan.

Find out what happened in both cities after the jump.

So You Think You Can Dance: LA Auditions (season premiere)

by Kristin Sample, posted May 23rd 2008 9:21AM
Auditions in LA(S04E01) It's back! *sings terribly* "Oh, I wanna dance with somebody. With somebody who loves me!" I am psyched for So You Think You Can Dance. We kicked off tonight with the L.A. auditions and a two-hour season premiere. There were a lot of Russians, a lot of pelvic thrusts, a lot of repeat dancers, and a lot of Mary Murphy's infectious/irritating laugh. I can't decide about that one. Some times I can't stand her and some times I want to sit next to her at the judges table. What about you?

But enough about Mary, let's get to the good stuff ... the auditions!

Shall she dance? Hillary invited to Dancing with the Stars

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 12th 2008 8:17PM
Hillary ClintonAs the race between Senator Hillary Clinton and Senator Barak Obama heats up for the Democratic party presidential candidacy, here comes news that should throw the spotlight onto Hillary...if she's savvy enough to say yes. During a recent visit to The Tyra Banks Show, Hillary revealed that "if (paired) with one of those really good partners" she would someday like to compete on Dancing with the Stars. When the powers that be at Dancing heard that, they wasted no time in sending the former first lady a formal invitation. While they acknowledge that the show is not currently in production, dancers from the show are performing around the country in Dancing with the Stars - The Tour. They invited Hillary to choose any one of the dancers and take a try at a cha cha, pasa doble or tango. Or, if she prefer, she could always call on hubby Bill for a pas de deux.

Dancing with the mullet

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Mar 20th 2007 11:26AM
Billy Ray Cyrus has hair issuesQuick! What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Billy Ray Cyrus? Mullets!

Although right now Billy Ray is rocking a new glamorous hairstyle fitting for a soccer mom, he understands that the nation pretty much associates him with his "business in the front, party in the back" country lifestyle. So the choreographers thought they would have a little fun with him and incorporate a mullet on his partner's head. If you were watching last night's Dancing With The Stars you might have seen the hair malfunction that occurred during Cyrus' performance.

The Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll: Welcome to the Dollhouse

by Paul Goebel, posted Mar 14th 2007 3:41PM

Lil Kim(S01E02) As I watched this week's episode, I could only think one thing...thank goodness there are only nine finalists, cause I really can't take much more of this show, in fact, in deference to the people who like this show (both of them) this is going to be my last review.

The first big event of the show is when the girls move into their new house. After the required fifteen minutes of screaming and running with their hands in their air, they finally choose their beds. Was I the only one aroused by the girl who licked her pillow?

Zach Galifianakis dances with KFed - VIDEO

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 12th 2007 9:26AM
zach galifianakis; kevin federline; late world with zachDid you know that comedian Zach Galifianakis and Kevin Federline have a history? Oh, it's not nearly as sordid as the Britney-Kevin history, but in some ways it's much more entertaining and a lot less pathetic.

On his website, Zach recently posted a link to this video on YouTube that shows Kevin Federline as one of the dancers on Zach's short-lived show, Late World with Zach. Why were there dancers on Zach's show? Well, it was all part of a sketch to announce the cancellation of Zach's show. I've posted the video after the jump. K-Fed is the dancer with the hat on and is pretty easy to recognize. This was back in 2002, before anyone even knew the guy. Back then, K-Fed was much less of a punk and more graceful.

Friends co-creator developing series for CW

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 17th 2006 9:03PM

marta kauffmanFriends co-creator Marta Kauffman is developing a pilot for the CW with the working title Steps. The series will be a one-hour drama with some comedic elements set at a dance studio run by a family. Kauffman herself grew up in a family where dancing was important. Her mother danced herself when she was younger and later opened her own studio. If it seems weird that Kauffman is moving from an established network like NBC to the still young CW, she says it's because she wants the show to be somewhat under the radar to avoid the scrutiny it might receive on one of the major networks. The premise doesn't really appeal to me, personally, but then again, I'm not a big fan of dance shows. I never cared much for Fame, either. As long as the show doesn't have any cheesy dance numbers like the end of Dirty Dancing I'll probably check it out at least once.

My Name Is Earl: Jump For Joy

by Michael Sciannamea, posted Sep 29th 2006 11:24AM

Jump For Joy(S02E02) We got a good glimpse this week of how storylines won't necessarily be capped at one episode, plus we never really saw Earl cross anything off his list. It was funny, but in a smarmy sort of way, to see Randy get so overcome by the thought of Catalina dancing at Chubby's. We knew that he had a sort of fondness for her, but his feelings really overwhelmed him this time around.
