One of the worst shows on Television
8 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

I really don't get why the heck (G-rated explicative) this thing is on, and why the heck anyone would watch it.

When I had this show on all I heard were women screaming in approval of some alleged "dance steps", which to me seem more like a series of suggestive mating calls than actual dance.

In short, this is pure and utter junk, yet people, read that as women, want to see it. To me this just indicates that the feminization of mainstream television has gone way too far when something as vapid and tortuous as so-called "famous people" getting up in front of a camera and, again, allegedly "dancing" garnishes praise, adornment and attention, again, by the women of North America.

Okay, it's a female show, aimed at females, so why am I even bothering with this review? I mean, I have a remote, and if I didn't, then presumably I can get my backside up off my chair or couch and change the channel on my television... or surf the net... right? Yeah, I can, and do. But, for whatever reason, and I can't fathom why, this TV experience, a TV experience which I gave a chance, really hit a raw nerve with me.

No, TV doesn't need to air the classics, be Shakespeare, nor do the networks need to revamp their programming to air high-concept, high-IQ media fare to improve the cultural standards of the TV viewing audience. But, my god, semi-famous names dancing? And not even dancing, but moving their bodies in embarrassing ways to canned Latin dance music? This is entertainment? Even for a so-called "reality" show it's dumb beyond belief.

No, I don't watch Survivor, Big Brother, that "let's build a house" program, nor any of the other cheap bastardization of America's air waves that passes for entertainment. I simply don't and won't. And the networks wonder why their audience is shrinking.

Maybe if they put something on that didn't placate to the lowest, basest, dumbest of audiences, then more mainstream middle class, people with money, would tune in, and their sponsors would change from McDonalds to BMW.

Just a thought.
