'Dancing With the Stars' Semi-Finals and Week 9 Elimination (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 16th 2011 12:00AM
'Dancing With the Stars' eliminationThe most bittersweet elimination of the season took place on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). To come one week shy of the finale is absolutely brutal, but each of the remaining contestants was all smiles. Simply making it this far is quite an achievement, and all four have proven themselves talented and worthy of their place.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

This week Hope Solo struggled the most with the judges, but J.R. Martinez wasn't so far ahead on points that a surge of public support couldn't save her. Rob Kardashian and Ricki Lake were probably feeling pretty safe, but we've seen bigger surprises in the past.

'Dancing With the Stars' Week 8 EliminationThis week was the Final Five's last chance to impress the judges before next week's semifinals round on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). But with America helping to steer the decisions, only J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff likely had a restful night's sleep after the season's first double perfect scores.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus again scored the lowest overall total from the judges, just as they had last week. But whereas last week the gap between Grace and David Arquette was only three points, this week there were seven points separating her from the next lowest scorers, Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke.

'Dancing With the Stars' Week Seven Elimination (VIDEO)

'Dancing With the Stars'If you were to go by the judges' scores this week on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC), we'd be saying goodbye to Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus. She had the lowest combined totals from the judges across two performances this week.

But we know that America doesn't always agree with the judges, and popularity is as much a factor as anything else. David Arquette and J.R. Martinez also scored below a 50, but really it could've been virtually anyone going as the scores tend to tighten up as we near the end of competition.

'Dancing With the Stars' Week Six Elimination (VIDEO)

'Dancing With the Stars'After an emotional performance show, in which Maks lost his cool with Len, it was bound to be a tense elimination on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC). Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his partner, Hope Solo, scored a 20 from the judges, which was better than only one other couple, Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer, who got 19.

Audience votes make up the difference of the vote, obviously, which had to leave Maks and Hope sweating waiting for the final word. We've seen how their fellow contestants felt, many of whom felt he may have crossed the line. Would America agree?

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

'Dancing With the Stars' Week Five Elimination (VIDEO)

'Dancing With the Stars' Week 5 EliminationIt was a great night of entertainment this week on the elimination installment of 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC). With both Kelly Clarkson and The Band Perry on hand to provide the musical interludes, it was easy to forget that we were going to have to lose someone this week.

Carson Kressley had the lowest scores from the judges, but the person with the lowest scores hasn't gone him since Week One. Chaz Bono was two points above him at 21, but again fan support has kept both men in longer than their talent would have alone. Would it continue?

'Dancing With the Stars' Week 3 Elimination Shocks the Judges (VIDEO)

'Dancing With the Stars' Week 3 ResultsAccording to Len Goodman on the 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC) results show for this third week, "My expectations were that these two couples would be fighting for the final and maybe one of them going home with the mirrorball." He was talking about the two couples left standing in threat of elimination.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

That said, though, neither of them had the highest scores on the previous night. However, they didn't have the lowest scores either. What they clearly lacked was a large enough fan base. Or maybe, as Tom Bergeron suggested, everyone just assumed they were safe.

'So You Think You Can Dance' Results: Two More Dancers Eliminated (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 8th 2011 2:25AM
'So You Think You Can Dance'In seasons past, the judges have split up couples in their eliminations, but that hasn't been the case leading into tonight's cuts on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). Each week, they've cut a paired couple, leaving all the other couples intact.

Even in the week when four people were eliminated out of a possible six, they cut two paired couples. That has to add to the pressure when competing as it must feel like your fate may be as tied to how well your partner does than how well you do.

But nothing in the rules says you have to do that, so would it continue as the Top 14 was whittled down to the Top 12? We have some strong couples, but there have been some instances where one partner has clearly shown more promise than the other.

'American Idol' Top 7 Results: Who Was Eliminated? (VIDEO)

'American Idol' resultsLast week, Paul McDonald broke the streak of five consecutive girls sent home on 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). With only two remaining in the Top Seven, Jennifer Lopez made no bones about not wanting to see a girl go home this week.

When the show brought out the eliminated contestants last week for an opening performance, the gender bias of the season was painfully obvious, as poor McDonald tried to keep up with the five girls on a girl-power song.

!SPOILER ALERT!

When Ryan Seacrest started whittling down the contestants, the favorites stayed out of the line of fire. Of the seven remaining contestants, only three of them have been in the Bottom Three before. And they made up the Bottom Three this week.

Getting Lost Leads to Elimination on 'America's Next Top Model' (VIDEO)

Tyra Banks, 'America's Next Top Model'One day and four destinations in four hours proved to be too much for several of the contestants on 'America's Next Top Model' (Wed., 8PM ET on The CW). Only Alexandria, who's a Los Angeles native, had no problem hitting the four Go-Sees in the allotted time.

Alexandria had a great week, as she sailed through every challenge, booked every job and even got high praise from the judges, while the other contestants shot daggers at her from behind their smiling eyes.

It was important for the girls who struggled at the Go-Sees challenge to own the photo shoot at the dump. Look good in a garbage dump, or be shipped out with the trash. Who didn't make the cut this week?

'American Idol' Results: Top Nine Shocking Elimination (VIDEO)

'American Idol' elimination resultsThe judges saved Casey Abrams a couple of weeks ago, so that option isn't around anymore. That means 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX) is counting on you to get it right each and every week. But there's been almost no consistency in the Bottom Three this season.

So far we've seen Haley, Stefano, Paul and Casey in the Bottom Three this season among the remaining contestants. And this week continued the trend of seeing some new faces in the bottom. It's harder than ever to predict what the American public is looking for.

But one thing everyone seemed to agree on, was that this week's eliminated contestant should not have been going home so soon.

The Biggest Loser, MelissaMan, it's gotta be tough when you gain weight on 'The Biggest Loser' (Tues., 8PM ET on NBC). That's what happened with Melissa this week, and she was sent home. But hey, at least she's still under 200 lbs. She'll be alright.

Meanwhile, Cheryl and Darrell battled each other in an elimination challenge that involved balancing a torch on their head. Ok, that's just not right. Not only does it seem really dangerous, but are they trying to give the contestants a closed head injury?

Watch the video after the jump.

Review: The Amazing Race - We're Not Meant for the Swamp

The brothers and the Globetrotters sprint through the bog
(S15E09) Things got a bit down and dirty tonight on The Amazing Race. I'm talking more ways than one. As the promos for the episode showed, we had muddy bogs and a quasi-skirmish between two teams tonight. There are five teams left in the race at this time. Two of the teams are definitely vying for the alpha male rating on the show. And I'm not talking Brian and Ericka! Any previous alliances are gone in the wind as the teams try to get to the precious final three. Take no prisoners.

Monkey business at the TAR roadblock
(S15E04) You'll have to bear with me tonight. You see, I'm cranky. Yes, I'm cranky about tonight's episode of The Amazing Race. Perhaps I'd be a bit less cranky had the show started anywhere near on time. No, it's a Sunday show and here in the NYC viewing area, any sport played during the day can run over and delay the entire Sunday evening primetime line-up. On a night like tonight, delayed 45 minutes, it wreaks havoc with other shows I'd like to watch and my review writing time. But that's not the only reason I'm cranky.

American Idol: Top 13 elimination results

American Idol - 2 of 13 eliminated

I'm pretty happy with the results tonight. I feel like America and the judges made the right call. And it isn't just up to America anymore. As Seacrest told us, there's a new American Idol rule. When someone is eliminated by America's vote, the judges have the ability to keep the person in the competition. It's designed to be used when America goes insane and votes people like LaToya London and Chris Daughtry off, people who deserve to stay in the competition. As I understand it, this option can only be used one time. Thankfully, the judges didn't use it tonight.

We also got to see the cool new digs where the Idols are staying. It's a ginormous mansion, complete with a swimming pool (or two), basketball court, bowling alley, hot tubs, the whole shebang. Looks like a very cool place to de-stress after being called to center stage to await your fate.

Super Skank Wednesday: The Demise of Rodeo

Rodeo and her bedazzled bandanaWelcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

Today we'll talk about Rodeo who got eliminated from I Love Money this past Sunday. The name. The guns. The bandanas she customized with a Bedazzler. The barbeque sauce.

I'm sad she got kicked off. She certainly could have used that money for some psychiatric evaluations. Let's talk about her demise after the jump. I'm doing another picture book.
