         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?

        Today is the Indy 500.  It is the 92nd Indy.  Over the last few years more people are getting into watching it.  I think some of the newer drivers, and the next generation of already famous drivers, have brought in new viewership.  This helps to keep the sport alive; but, i was a little bit shocked at some of the  negative comments i read about that.

        It seems there are alot of bashers out there.  Wow, some of it was gender based and some of it was anti-celebrity based.  People like Danica Patrick (female) and Helio Castroneves (popular from a spin on Dancing With The Stars fame) have brought more attention to race car driving.  However, some of the fans really take issue with that.

       Danica seems to inspire alot of the bashing.  Comments about her were pretty mean spirited and sexist.  I read things such as she spends alot of time showing off her body to compensate for her lack of exerience. Or, yeah right…she is going to win…with only one OTHER win under her belt.  Or people making comments about some of the other drivers in the race.  I mean…geez…everybody has to start somewhere.

       It is ok to have a favorite driver or team…but come on…isn’t really all about the driving?  About safety,skill and entertainment?  Who is best will be reflected in the outcome.  So why spend so much time dumping on any of the drivers?  Just watch and see!!!  Comment on the actual race…and how the drivers perform.
