Ted McGinley Sounds Off on 'Dancing' Exit

by Raven Snook, posted Sep 25th 2008 5:02PM
Ted McGinley and Inna Brayer"It's not about the result. It's about the doing. The 'doing' is the win."

Ted McGinley was visibly sad to be the second star sent home. Considering his status as the patron saint of Jump the Shark, that's understandable. He's used to staying with shows until the very end.

Lack of a large fan base unquestionably contributed to his early exit. But he had a lot of fans among his competitors. "I loved watching him on 'Married With ... Children,' Lance Bass enthused. Meanwhile his partner Lacey Schwimmer revealed a personal connection. "Ted went to high school with my mom! They just saw each other in the hallway."

Alec Mazo and Toni Braxton were convinced McGinley would have stuck around if he'd done his second dance first. "I thought he was much better [the second night], said Mazo. "I agree. If he'd done that first..." said Braxton before her partner finished her thought, "He would have had a shot at it."

While he may not be as big as Bass or Braxton, McGinley certainly has very vocal fans who were outraged at his ousting.

Read on for more of AOL TV's backstage chat with Ted and the rest of the 'Dancing With the Stars' cast.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 1 Results

by Brett Love, posted Sep 24th 2008 11:41PM
Ashly Costa(S07E03) We're really getting back into the swing of things now. After the whirlwind of 25 performances in two nights, it was time for a proper results show. As usual, that's both good and bad. Results shows always hold the prospect of musical guests, and professional numbers.

Unfortunately, they also have a tendency to bring iffy comedy bits, and dull taped packages. It's a bit of a crapshoot, but usually worth tuning in. Because, as we all know, no matter how sure you are that a certain couple is leaving, you just never really know. Am I hinting at a surprise elimination? Or just trying to trick you into clicking your way past the jump? Only one way to find out.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 1

by Brett Love, posted Sep 24th 2008 1:00AM
Brooke Burke - Dancing With The Stars(S07E02) Just like that, we're back for round two. With the new season seven format, all thirteen couples returned to the ballroom Tuesday night, but only twelve of them would perform. The show borrowed a bit from the results show format as the safe couples were revealed one by one. After each reveal, that couple would perform while the rest of the dancers waited nervously. Some, obviously, more nervous than others.

The second night of dancing offered us a chance to see who learned from their experience performing live. Just getting comfortable with the setting is a huge hurdle to overcome in the beginning of the season. Some of the stars have taken to it quicker than others. To that end, I'm not one to spoil before the jump, but I'll leave you with this. In referencing one set of scores, Tom remarked that the judges were "Bringin' out the big paddles." Was there a 9? A 10? The results of all the dances are after the jump.

Dancing With The Stars: Season Premiere

by Brett Love, posted Sep 23rd 2008 12:32AM
Misty May-Treanor - Dancing With The Stars(S07E01) Can you believe it? Dancing With The Stars is kicking off its seventh season. In an effort to keep things fresh, this season marks the largest cast of competitors ever. That cast also features both the youngest, and the oldest, contestants to ever appear on the show. There are winners from the Grammys, the Oscars, the Olympics, and the Super Bowl. It should make for quite a show.

In another new twist, there is another new format for week one. All thirteen couples performed Monday night. Tuesday, one of the couples will be eliminated as the other twelve perform a second number. Then, on Wednesday, one more couple will be sent home. With thirteen performances, there is a lot to get to. I'll run them down quickly, with a look at what I think each couple's prospects for the competition are. Because, as we are all well aware by now, the dancing is only part of what keeps people moving on from week to week.

ABC announces new cast of Dancing With the Stars

by Kona Gallagher, posted Aug 25th 2008 12:02PM
Dancing with the starsDancing With the Stars is a show that makes no sense to me. I understand the appeal of it; I'm usually very interested in any program that involves celebrities doing ridiculous things on national television and I know that people love bright shiny costumes, but it still somehow manages to hold no interest for me whatsoever.

With that said, I know that the announcement of each season's DWTS cast is heavily anticipated and rumored for months before the actual announcement. We heard that Dan Marino may be a contestant; a claim that was soon denied. 82-year-old Cloris Leachman was another name floated, as was Magnum, P.I. himself, Tom Selleck. Kim Kardashian and Kathy Griffin were also said to have been approached.

As with most rumors, some of these turned out to be false, but others had some truth to them. Follow me after the jump for the official (and completely insane) cast of Dancing With the Stars' seventh season, along with some twists the producers have cooked up for this go-around.

Jericho: Patriots and Tyrants (series finale)

Lennie James(S02E07) "Yeah, I know." - A Texan diplomat after being shown the bomb.

Since Mayor Douchebag has been gone for so long, I was finally able to be glad to see him. I have been curious what's been going on in the "capital." and seeing those buildings told me more than I wanted to know.

I can't believe the Rangers were still in hiding. I understand that they all have targets on their backs but it should be clear to anyone that their only choice is to fight back. If the military is going to make a big push to take over the town, I don't see how they have an option.

Five from Revenge of the Nerds who went on to TV stardom

by Richard Keller, posted Sep 4th 2007 11:01AM

Five Nerds stars who went onto television fameWhen you think of Revenge of the Nerds what comes to mind? Classic 80's movie? Naked sorority sisters? Morality story on how the meek can inherit the earth? Bush (and not the president)?

That's what came to my mind when I recently saw the film. However, something else popped into my brain as well while I was watching the end credits. Not only did a number of Nerds stars go on to other successful movies, but they also went and became fairly big television stars as well. Here are five who went onto small-screen fame.

Seven signs that it's time for your show to go

by Joel Keller, posted May 14th 2007 10:19AM
Ted McGinleyWe've all heard the term "jump the shark." In fact, it's become so familiar that people are getting sick of hearing it. But there's a certain truth behind the phrase: if you're a fan of a particular show, you can pinpoint the moment when the show has gone too far and needs to be put out of its misery. Some of these moments are well-documented; others less so. Still others haven't happened on any show yet, but you just know they are coming. Below are seven signs that tell you it's time for your favorite show to fade away gracefully:

Sports Night: Napoleon's Battle Plan

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 2nd 2006 2:40PM

Sports Night(S01E22) This is one of the more soap opera-ish of the Sports Night episodes, because it deals with relationships and secrets and who's sleeping with who and who knows and who doesn't know and will they find out. But it doesn't feel lie it, because it's still Sports Night, and that means it's still funny and smart and well done.

Gordon proposes to Dana, who has accepted, and this ticks off Casey, who knows that Gordon slept with Sally. But he can't tell Dana because then she'll find out that he too slept with Sally. Casey says he's just going to follow "Napoleon's Battle Plan" and just see what happens. Dan isn't sure if this is such a good idea, and has a plan of his own.

Sports Night: Sally

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 26th 2006 9:30PM

Ted McGinley(S01E16) This episode has one of the great surprise lines in sitcom history (in my opinion anyway, don't want to oversell it).

While Dana is upset that Gordon stood her up last night and Jewish Jeremy is freaking out that he has to spend three days with Natalie's Catholic family, Casey talks to Dan about a shirt of his that's missing, and Dan figures out how and why this particular shirt is missing.

I feel the same about the fuzz on peaches. Sends shivers down my spine.

Sports Night: Small Town

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 17th 2006 8:23PM

Sports Night(S01E13) This isn't the "funniest" episode of Sports Night (and I think I sense them using the laugh track less here), but it's a truly solid episode, because it tells a lot about the characters, strengthens the relationships they all have, and has three different plots that work seperately but also work off of each other too.

Casey and Dana have a night off on the same night, so they decide to double date: Casey will be with on a blind date with a lawyer (Lisa, with an "S" but pronounced Liza), and Casey will be with Gordon. Neither Casey nor Dana really want to go on the date (they think they'll be too uncomfortable), but Isaac won't let them work that night just because a trade "may" happen.

Meanwhile, Natalie is in charge for the night, and Dan has to deal with a substitute anchor who insists they slept together in Spain a few years earlier and he never called her afterward. Dan says she's a nut.

Scrubs: My Buddy's Booty

by Chris Thilk, posted Feb 28th 2006 11:08PM
scrubs my buddys bootyJ.D. is still broken up over breaking up (heh) with Julie in the last episode. As a possible cure, Carla and Turk suggest he and Elliot commence with the booty calls. Not with each other, mind you, but each one should pick out one of their interns to have a fling with....OK I'm going to stop right there. It's one thing to suggest to a morose friend that they hit a bar and take their chances. It's another thing to say "go pick, from among people you supervise, which one you're going to have no-strings-attached sex with." Am I right? Doesn't it seem like Carla and Turk were advocating something along the lines of sexual harassment?
