Ok, so 24 hours ago, there was a moment on "Dancing with the Stars" when it seemed to some out there in television land that the ballroom was booing Sarah Palin. The "moment" occurred just after Jennifer Grey and Mark Ballas got their 8s from the judges. On tonight's results show, raw video tape footage from Monday night was played to show the world that the ballroom was booing those aforementioned 8s, and the three judges.... not Ma Palin. So there you have it.
Earlier tonight, the show spent a ridiculous amount of time having judge Bruno Tonioli explain his score of 3 for Michael Bolton's dismal jive Monday night. Seems some of you out there in television land thought his score and his remarks Monday night were just too harsh for Bolton to handle. Boo-hoo-hoo. The jive was awful and the 3 was just about right. Sorry, Bruno had every right to score as he saw it. Judge Len Goodman did point out the fact that he tries to give constructive criticism as well as scores.
ABC went to great lengths to set the record straight tonight. I can't recall any other reality show that has done something similar. Why the need to explain scores and booing and hurt feelings?
Just some musings at 7:45 as we wait and WAIT and WAIT to find out who goes home. Oh and by the way, if it's Bolton, it wasn't Bruno's score that sent him home. It was his crummy dancing. Can anyone say David Hasselhoff?
