I identified Hasselhoff as the weakest dancer during last night's performances, but he is one of the more widely recognized contestants, and I expected his notoriety to translate to voting fans. My mistake. I was in good company, though. Host Tom Bergeron said that in all the seasons he has hosted, this is the Week 1 elimination that surprised him the most.
I cannot be expected to devote four hours of my week to viewing this program in addition to the amount of time it takes me to blog about it afterwards, so I don't watch the elimination episode. It's two hours of fluff filler. I was watching Glee, Raising Hope, and Running Wilde on Fox; and let me just tell you--I was not disappointed. More on that later.
I am looking forward to next week's episode of DWTS, but I've discovered a few things about myself. I will be very unsatisfied unless at some point in the season I do not see:
- Michael Bolton perform the pasadoble to "Time Love and Tenderness"
- Brandy perform the tango to "The Boy is Mine"
- Bristol Palin perform the rumba to "Papa Don't Preach"
