Dancing With the Stars is the worst show on television– everything that So You Think You Can Dance was, it is not. Let’s take a look, shall we:

Talent– SYTYCD: yes/DWtS: no

Music has anything to do with the style of dance– SYTYCD: usually/DWtS: almost never

Adorable host(s)– SYTYCD: yes/DWtS: no

Interesting choreography– SYTYCD: most of the time/ DWtS: only rarely

Dancers work hard at their craft– SYTYCD: always/DWtS: the pros work so hard it’s pitiful in contrast to the celebs not so much

Can relate to or get behind the contestants– SYTYCD: yep/DWtS: as if.

Here’s the new band of misfits, as leaked a day in advance by celebrity gossip site TMZ (found via Celebritology):

  • Aaron Carter
  • Wayne Newton
  • Mark Cuban
  • Jane Seymour
  • Tori Spelling
  • Jennie Garth
  • Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
  • Lou Ferrigno
  • Nia Peeples
  • Richard Quest
  • Gisele Bundchen
  • Helio Castroneves
  • Sabrina Ryan
  •  

     

    I have never even heard of half these people and will probably only tune in for the last two or three episodes so that I can make sport of criticizing the poor song choices and ridiculous lengths the pros have to go to to make their celebs look good. If you are going to be following the show, ABC has a Fantasy Dancing contest (like fantasy sports with dancers, I suppose) so you can play along.

    [UPDATE 8/30:

    The TMZ list had some inaccuracies (thanks Beto and Tonya). I’m shocked, I though you could believe everything you read on celebrity gossip sites! 😉
