I've been asking myself the same thing.

Oh, and I jacked up the question this week. I'll fix it next time.

I can't believe she's dancing to that song.

I'm seeing the Tuesday night show listed in two different ways, -TV Guide has it as a two-hour show, while my DVR has it listed as two separate one-hour shows (suggesting that the first hour is a condensed version of the premiere).

I love that once again, the producers have cast a professional dancer (Brandy) and they'll spend the whole season trying to downplay the fact that she dances as part of her job. Jennifer Grey is a much better "dancer" if that's what they wanted to throw into the mix. Someone that's known for it but doesn't necessarily do it every day.

Does Brandy have that much of an "act" anymore, and did she do all that much dancing? I've heard more about her foibles and mis-steps (no pun intended) since her career went topsy (of course, she's no David Hasselhoff in that regard). Grey probably hasn't danced much since she made the movie 25 years ago, and apparently she has some steel rods in her neck.

I tend to think its a pretty even playing field, though with some probable deadwood. Then again, there might be a surprise in the bunch.

They should've saved that song for when Levi Johnston joins the cast.

I just caught Bristol's dance, the girl has no charisma and zero personality when being interviewed.

Did you see her stomach when she pulled up her shirt!?



And Jennifer Grey getting so upset thinking about Swayze was a bit much. Wonder when the last time they talked or saw each other before he died?

Funny... in her intro, she mentioned she was a singer and actress, but left out mom killer. Wonder why.

Does David Hasselhoff really think that most people aren't laughing at him!? My God he is the ultimate tool. And one of the most painful people to watch. He was hands down the worst dancer tonight. Mainly because he was "performing", not dancing. And singing along with the song. Which I thought the judges slammed the dancers before in the past and yet not one said a thing to him about it. And he did it almost the entire time.

Ha, flipping past this, seeing him in the background, just acting weird, seemed like a SNL sketch or something.

Only watched the first hour because due to conflicts, it's all that I can record. My only take-away is that Audrina is a very attractive woman.

Ok, so I'm not sure I understand what this episode as tonight. Are they trying to show us that they can easily do in an hour what they stretched out to 2 hours the night before? Hell I could actually watch the show in this format.

It was on at 8pm. I think it was every dance from last night which I missed because my schedule is packed on Monday's. None of the filler like the rehearsal time and talking after the dance.

I think that's only a one time shot then. Next week is just an hour on Tuesday.

Kind of surprised about that elimination. Unless something is going on behind the scenes?

Spoiler:
Being that Hoff hits the bottle pretty hard, I can imagine the producers not wanting to deal with him or put Kym in a position of having to handle a partner that's liable to pass out on her at any moment.
