Posts Tagged ‘Cloris Leachman’

        Tonight was the elimination show on dancing with the stars.  The contestant that left this weeks competition is Rocco Despirito, the chef.  I felt that he had been improving…but evidently not enough to compensate for all of the viewers who love Cloris Leachman. 

         However, Rocco was a true gentleman with his departure.  I love the fact that he thanked the other competitors, his dance partner Karina, and in turn each of the judges.  I respect him because of what comes across as a true appreciation of his experiences on the show.  He appears to really and truly have discovered joy in the experience.  He conducted himself in true sportsman like behavior while competing as well as in exiting the competition.  Good job team Rocco and Karina!  

        Ps…Cloris seemed a bit surprised that she wasn’t the one leaving this week.  Even though she did an outstanding job last night in her dance.  I really like the fact that each season…most of the competitors develop a real affection for one another.

         Well, this is interesting…tonight on Dancing With the Stars…Kim Kardashian left the show before 82 year old Cloris Leachman.  HMMMMM…what can you say?   That is just sad.  Someone young, someone able bodied, someone who supposedly has a strong following, because of her “reality celebrity” television show, couldn’t beat out an 82 year old comedian/actress…who really can’t dance, who goes for the joke with her performances and who shocks viewers with her poor taste in speech!  

         Well, we are in for another week…of mugging by Cloris.  I certainly thought it was time for her to leave this week…but, what can you say…Kim certainly didn’t help matters with her poor performances.  Thanks alot Kim…i really like Dancing With The Stars…but, i really think that they need to respect the fact that their show is supposed to be family friendly…let’s make sure that future performers remember that fact!

       It can’t be helped; tonight, i am going to miss Dancing With The Stars.  It is my guilty pleasure to watch this show.  I look forward to the season; when it is out of season.  I need to run to the airport to pick up my hubby from a business trip.  He is more important than watching television…but, on the other hand, i am glad that Dancing With The Stars always has a recap on Tuesday nights, of the show the night before.  This way, i can catch up…since i am going to miss it tonight.  I hate to have to miss it; in it’s first showing…but, at least i will get to see the stars in action tomorrow night.

        Since this is the second week of the season, i hope that they haven’t changed their formula from the previous season…or, i will be very disappointed.  The early stages of the season…it is supposed to run fairly predictable with who leaves week by week according to skill or lack of skill…although, some have fallen for Cloris Leachman’s personality; and, kept her on a week or so longer than they should have in my opinion.  No matter, in a few short weeks, the true competitors will be in place and you will begin to see real growth in those who remain in the competition.  In the meantime, the show is an enjoyment for the most part. 

          In having Cloris, the oldest competitor in the history of Dancing With The Stars…maybe they should have called it Risky Business!  After all, a fall could be serious business for someone who is in their 80’s.  It is somewhat inspirational to have her set an example of remaining active in body and spirit when we age; however, Cloris has set a bad example with her behavior and her salty language.  

          Maybe Dancing With The Stars should have a clause in their agreement with the entertainers on standards of behavior allowed on the television show; since it is watched by families with young children as audience members.

         This year, September 22 is going to be a ratings high point for the ABC network.  Two seperate events will help to make that happen.  One is that Bill Clinton will be making an appearance on “The View” to promote his outreach program that intends to bring world leaders together to bring about new solutions for correcting some of the biggest issues that we face such as hunger/starvation and AIDS as well as other humanitarian problems.  The View is a program that is often controversial…but focussing on a program that has the potential to help humanitarian efforts around the globe is something most people can get behind and help support.

          The other event is the first night of the season premiere of Dancing With The Stars…it will be a three night event.  This season has created alot of buzz before it ever even began rehearsals.  Some of the celebrities have strong followings of their own…so, i think you will find that viewership of this season will dramatically increase and set records.  Who is on this season you may ask? 

           Two couples will be eliminated in the first week alone…who will be the first to leave?  Hmmmmm…The celebrities include:  Lance Bass, singer of N’Sync fame, Toni Braxton, singer, Brooke Burke, actress and entrenpeneur, Rocco Dispirito, celebrity chef, Maurice Greene, Olympic sprinter, Cloris Leachman, actress, Cody Linley, actor from Hannah Montanna, Susan Lucci, actress and entrenpeneur, Misty May Treanor, Olympic volleyball champion, Ted McGinley, actor, Jeffrey Ross, comedian, Warren Sapp, retired NFL player, Kim Kardashian, reality television star.  So, will you be watching either of these events?
