Julie Benz Wants to Dance With The Stars

17 December 2010 4:29 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It's been quite a day for TV fans on Twitter.

Another little nugget of awesome dropped in our laps courtesy of the social media site this afternoon, when host of ABC's Dancing With The Stars, Tom Bergeron, proposed a casting choice for the upcoming season...one with network "synergy written all over it."

If Bergeron gets his way, Julie Benz star of ABC's No Ordinary Family would speed-race her way across the dance floor this spring. And based on Benz's response, she'd be all over the opportunity like sparkle on a sequin.

Here's the transcript of their brief exchange:

Bergeron: Post-vacation, I'd love 2 see you pulling double duty. No Ordinary Family & Dwts. U should be able 2 do a Really fast quickstep!

Benz: I would love to!!!!!

Bergeron: Good to know! It has synergy written all over it. And spray tan. And teeny little costumes!

Benz: some do it for the dance. »

'Dancing With the Stars' postmortem: Season 11 concludes, integrity intact

24 November 2010 12:25 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

From the moment she was rumored as a cast member for Season 11 of "Dancing With the Stars," Bristol Palin was something of a self-fulfilling prophecy.

The imbalanced media attention (guilty), blind support from some of the political right, endurance in the competition, general presence of her mother and the ensuing outrage from dancing "purists" over all of the above seem more likely to be part of the series' master plan than a case for its compromised integrity.

The only real surprise is that she wasn't actually awful. She had a rough start, and there were more than a few bumps along the way, but in diplomatic hindsight, Palin easily bested expectations.

And that combination of moderate talent and sensationalism brought her all the way to the finale, where her attendance easily helped buoy the series to some of its best ratings in several seasons. But with that mission accomplished, it »

Though many thought (or worried) that rumors of a voting conspiracy would prove true and viewers would vote for Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol, talent ultimately triumphed and Jennifer Grey became the season 11 winner of Dancing with the Stars. Speaking with the press after the two-hour finale with a cold compress tied to her back, Grey talked about how she and partner Derek Hough “never thought of winning” and tried instead to focus on creating memorable dances.

Bristol Palin Finishes Third on 'Dwts', Jennifer Grey Crowned New Champion

23 November 2010 8:50 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Bristol Palin has become the center of many surprises on season 11 of "Dancing with the Stars", but it apparently wasn't enough for her to take home the coveted mirrorball trophy. On Tuesday night, November 23, the daughter of Sarah Palin has to admit defeat from top contender Jennifer Grey.

The season finale was kicked off with a re-appearance of most of the season's contestants on the dance floor, before all three finalists, Bristol, Jennifer and Kyle Massey, performed their final dances. Bristol and Kyle chose Tango for their first dance and earned a score of 25 and 26 respectively from the judges. Meanwhile, Jennifer won another perfect score with her Waltz.

For their second dance, all three were required to perform Cha Cha Cha to Pink's "Raise Your Glass". Kyle, who got the first turn, scored 28 out of 30. Jennifer, who hit the dance floor afterward, nabbed 28 out of 30, and Bristol, who came last, »

Jennifer Grey Wins 'Dancing with the Stars!'

23 November 2010 8:17 PM, PST | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

"Dancing with the Stars" ("DWTS") hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke probably never anticipated the controversy and ratings bonanza that would follow Season 11 of ABC's popular talent show that began with "Baywatch" star David Hasselhoff, "Jersey Shore" cast member Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino among others. According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” “Dirty Dancing" actress Jennifer Grey and dance partner Derek Hough were named winners last night, beating out actor Kyle Massey and Bristol Palin in front of 23.7 million viewers. The Season 11 finale numbers were the best ratings for the show since the November 2007 finale and a boost of 3.3 million viewers from last year. »

Another Dancing with the Stars Conspiracy: Were Voters Locked Out Last Night On Purpose?

23 November 2010 2:15 PM, PST | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

If you're a Dancing with the Stars fan who also believes in black helicopters, this season has been like a dream come true. Movieline has already discussed the Bristol Palin phenomenon -- and Dwts host Tom Bergeron has weighed in with his very own "f*** you" to conspiracy theorists -- but was there something truly sinister behind last night's apparent voting blackout? »

Celebs Wow with Fabulous Freestyles on 'Dwts' Finals

22 November 2010 6:19 PM, PST | TheInsider.com | See recent The Insider news »

The final three couples on "Dancing with the Stars" took their last opportunity to woo America on Monday night, giving it their all with two dances. First up, each team took a second stab at a dance that gave them trouble earlier in the season. Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer opened the evening with their foxtrot, which earned a 27. Judge Len Goodman told Kyle, "Overall, you've gone from 'Messy Massey' to marvelous." Judge Bruno Tonioli commented, "Look at you, all slick, sharp and slinky!" Judge Carrie Ann Inaba wasn't 100 percent sold on the dance, saying, "It was great, but I'm looking forward to your freestyle. I think you can do better." Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas took a second shot at the jive, earning a 27. Bruno said, "You revealed yourself, you came out here, you had a good time, you didn't care, and we all enjoyed it." Carrie Ann commented »

'Dancing With the Stars': Kyle Massey's 'Tootsie Roll' boogaloo wows

22 November 2010 6:12 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Dancing With the Stars" allows the contestants to do a freestyle dance for the finals and Kyle Massey absolutely killed it with his freestyle hip hop boogaloo dance to "Tootsie Roll."

Clad in neon yellow, Kyle and partner Lacey tore up the dance floor with flips, bootie shakin' and break dancing -- they even threw in a few actual ballroom moves. What really impressed us, though, was how the energy never flagged. You could tell that Kyle left it all out there because afterward, he was sucking some major wind backstage. But that's awesome, we love to see someone give it his all.

The judges were big fans as well. Carrie Ann says, "This old Fly Girl dug it. I dub you the Fresh Prince of 'Dwts'" and Len Brits, "I'm not a great lover of the boogaloo dancing, but this was great fun, great entertainment and I thoroughly enjoyed it. »

'Dancing With the Stars' host Tom Bergeron: Controversy comes with the territory

22 November 2010 11:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Dancing With the Stars" host Tom Bergeron, who was admittedly surprised about Brandy's Week 9 kick-off, is not worried about this season's shockers affecting the fate of the series. He's seen it before.

"I'm trying to remember which season had people saying, 'This isn't fair, I'm never going to watch again,'" Bergeron tells Zap2it. "Oh, every season. You can do a historical analysis of the message boards and the blogosphere, and every season you get 'this is a conspiracy.'"

"Next season will be a new conspiracy," he says. "And the people who'll never watch again will watch again to tell us they'll never watch again."

Unless they shoot their televisions.

The conspiracy theorists, buoyed by Brandy's semifinals exit, are threatening to abandon the series because of Bristol Palin -- who has a spot in the finals, despite being the lowest scorer for seven weeks running. Bergeron doesn't see the big deal. »

Tom Bergeron Plays My Favorite Scene with Movieline

22 November 2010 10:00 AM, PST | Movieline - TVline | See recent Movieline - TVline news »

Last week we talked to Dancing with the Stars's dignified emcee, the dependable Tom Bergeron, and quizzed him on Bristol Palin's doubters, arguing with judges, and the fun of live TV. But before we tied up our interview, we asked him to play Moveline's game for cinephiles, My Favorite Scene, and he happily identified his favorite film scene of all-time. As expected, Bergeron's choice was as whimsical and droll as he is. Watch the clip after the jump. »

Bergeron: 'Bristol represents best of Dwts'

22 November 2010 7:47 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Dancing With The Stars host Tom Bergeron has insisted that Bristol Palin represents what's best about the ABC reality competition. Bergeron told TV Guide that he is unsure if Palin's continued survival is politically motivated, but suggested that she deserves credit for giving her best effort each week. "She's not the strongest dancer, obviously," he said. "But she... represents what I think is the best of our show - somebody who comes Day One and is completely out of their element and has shown a clear growth as a dancer. And she clearly has a massive (more) »

How Will Dancing End? Tom Bergeron Relishes the Unpredictable Season

21 November 2010 7:00 PM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Tom Bergeron's wish came true.

After Dancing with the Stars' predictable Season 10 — in which practically everyone foresaw Nicole Scherzinger winning — the host was hoping for more surprises from this season's hodgepodge of evenly matched contenders.

"We got it! Really, it all started with David Hasselhoff [who was eliminated first]. That was the most shocking moment for me," Bergeron tells TVGuide.com. "I have no idea what happened there. I was like, 'What the hell?' I figured we had at least four good weeks of comedy coming and boom! He's gone!"

Are you watching Dancing with the Stars? Tell us

That set the tone for the season: Following Hasselhoff — whose only performance left much to be desired — out the door went respectable contenders Audrina Patridge, Rick Fox and Kurt Warner. And then there was last week's shocker: Brandy got the boot, while Bristol Palin advanced to the ...

'Dancing With the Stars' host Tom Bergeron: 'Brandy wanted it more than anything'

17 November 2010 2:46 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The initial shock of Brandy's "Dancing With the Stars" dismissal has yet to wear off, but as her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy acknowledged during the show, there's no arguing with how America votes.

Zap2it spoke with Tom Bergeron the morning after Brandy's Week 9 elimination, and though he has seen his share of surprising exits in his 11 seasons, Brandy's still caught the host off guard.

"You get down to this point, and it's always going to be hard, but I was surprised," Bergeron tells Zap2it. "I would have thought she was going to the finals."

Bergeron generally knows about the eliminations beforehand -- other than during the finale, when he wants to be surprised -- and this was no exception. But that didn't prepare him for how the news was received in the studio.

"I don't think I've ever done this at the end of the show, »
