You know I was thinking about watching this season because I love Brooke Burke and I'm also a fan of Nicole Scherzinger. But, this show eats up so much DVR space during the week with 3 hours of coverage.

My wife is a die-hard fan of this show and records it... so I sneak a peak at the performances that she likes. She has pretty good taste.

For us, the early fav is Evan Lysacek.

... but to be honest, I'd only watch for Edita (but she's saddled with the no-name Soap star).

You need to do yourself a favor and look up some pics of Nicole Scherzinger. She's of Hawaiian, Russian and Filippino heritage. Gorgeous woman and decent singer if your into her genre . I believe she's dating Lewis Hamilton who is a British Race Car driver.

I know who she is ()... but I thought she was soooooo lame as a judge on "The Sing Off."

Nicole Scherzinger : The Sing Off :: Paula Abdul : American Idol

... but you know, in the end, I wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating crackers.

I never said she was the brightest.

She's on DWTS to dance and show off her hot body, that's all that matters.

Karina's not on this season?

If it was her choice, can't say that I blame her given how everyone seems to hate her.

No Karina, no Kym, no Julianne anymore. Edyta is the only female pro left that I like.

Well wasn't Karina engaged to Maks and then they later broke it off? That could be part of the reason why she doesn't want to be on the same stage as him.

Pam Anderson was a bit loopy, crossing "DwtS" off her bucket list just before getting her scores. Funny stuff.

I pray that Buzz doesn't break a hip.

Can't believe that they stuck Ashly with Buzz.

Why does Derek seem to get all the hotties?

Ashly always seems to get stuck with the crappiest person.

Anyone think it was weird to see Jake's mini-harem (Vienna AND Gia) in the audience?

I think I saw the winner tonight - Nicole and Derek. This guy seem to have all the lucks.

The winner was the viewership getting to stare at Brooke Burke's rack with the Power Girl-esque opening in the middle of her top.

Aiden deserved a higher score. He was better than Chad and Kate!

Chad was very disappointing.

Jake was better than I expected.

Nicole actually looked very nervous, which should make her more likable and give her a better shot at winning. Mya was good enough to win, but I think she seemed to have too much confidence which may have made her a bit less likable.

I just feel sorry for Buzz. I consider him a hero and he deserves better than this.

I watched it tonight and realized I am really not entertained by this show anymore. It became a chore to get through the last season. I just deleted my season pass. - it will lighten up my TV watching schedule and I won't have to juggle so many DVR conflicts.

It actually feels good to get rid of the clutter.

I think I'm going to join you, deleting this off my DVR schedule. Because it's just not fun to watch at all anymore. And hasn't been for a while. Just a few last time comments:

Someone needs to tell Pamela Anderson that acting ditzie and looking like a porn star at 42 is NOT cute, or sexy.

Kate Gosselin has absolutely zero personality. And is stiff as a board.

Buzz Aldrin is this year's "Oh Dear God" contestant. You know who the others have been in the past. It was just so sad watching him tonight. He looked like he was having a blast but......wow, what a trainwreck. And did you get a load of his WIFE!?

Last, I think it stinks that a dancer (Nicole) is allowed to be in this contest. I don't care if she's never danced like this before. She will win.

I wonder is it ABC or is it KXTV in Sacramento, CA that has this problem: I watched much of Dancing with the Stars last night (the video on my new HDTV was stunning), but the audio was really cruddy. There was essentially NO treble in the audio on both the SD and HD channels when it was broadcasting ABC shows.

Meanwhile, I'm not sure how far Chad Ochocinco will last--his attitude could get the best of him halfway through the season.

As soon as I saw Edyta's dress, I knew her partner was going to suck!

Re: Dancing with the Stars - Season 10 - "Top 11 (2-hour Season Premiere)" (03/22/10)

I like some of the changes this season. Scaling back to 11 couples was a good idea, Brooke is more fun than Samantha, and I like that they attempted to actually post the judges scores on the numbers recap (although it was buggy and didn't work for half the couples). But even with these changes (all window dressing, really) this show is just getting increasingly stale for me. Rotating the same old styles over and over is getting tired, and even when they do introduce new styles they appear once as some sort of one-time novelty instead of being added into the rotation. I also wish the rules/judges didn't handcuff the pros so much in terms of creativity in their choreography.

I've been having trouble with some ABC sound as well. Watching "FlashForward" last week I had a lot of loud distortion in the back channels, -though only during the story and not the commercials, -and it happened again with "Dancing" Monday.

I voted for Buzz to be off because I just feel bad for him, but this show reaffirmed my hatred for Kate Gosselin, so I'd be glad to see her off first, and then get Buzz out of there before he hurts himself.
