We'll watch pretty much anything with Cat Deeley, but this show tests even our undying affection for the hostess with the mostess. While she's her charmingly adorable self, getting in little jabs at the contestants and the celebrity daters, this show is so dreadful that we can barely tolerate it for an hour. So while she's the sole bright spot, here are the five worst things about this show:
Ahhh, April -- it comes in like a prank-loving lion and goes out... I don't know, a little warmer maybe, and without the pranks. And it rains a lot. Anyway, celebrate the first full month of spring by going outside to roll around in a field full of crocuses and dandelions! And if you have debilitating allergies or, like us at TWoP, work nowhere near such a field, celebrate by reading these TV newsbites! And give your brain a break from thinking about the ER finale tonight.
In the world of dancing competitions shows So You Think You Can Dance is my first love, but America's Best Dance Crew is moving up and finishing a close second lately. The thing that I enjoy about both of them? Aside from the fact that they both involve Shane Sparks... is that they expect their people to be talented and rise to challenges, unlike say Dancing With the Stars where the celebrities need to be coddled until they are passable, or Master of Dance where the talentless are celebrated for merely being able to shake their ass to the tune of the music. On my favorite shows nobody contenders become household names by seriously tearing up the dance floor.
