The entire Dance Your Ass Off audition process was efficiently handled in a mere one hour premiere last night, as we saw people come from around the country in droves, asses firmly intact, to dance for us in quick cuts of what probably amounted to about 90 seconds per contestant until they were either dismissed or cast. It wasn't that compelling (are audition episodes -- of any show -- ever engrossing?), at this stage in the game, but it was admirably quick, I will give them that.
Sick of hearing about the Leno/Conan feud? Well, the Internet sure isn't! On the bright side, there's so much TV news today that you can get yourself excited about something you actually watch.
Dance Your Ass Off. You won't admit that you watch it, but you do. I can admit it. I have that luxury because I've been published saying I watch The Bachelor and Police Women of Memphis so clearly I have no shame. So yay! Dance Your Ass Off Season 2! Because I'm obviously excited about the show's premiere tonight, I got on a conference call with its new and better host Mel B to get her answers to some riveting questions like "Are they going to dance to Spice Girls songs?" Just some really hard-hitting journalism. Get ready to have your mind blown and click through for highlights.
I can guarantee that you're a fan of at least one of the actors or TV shows mentioned in today's news. I mean it! If I'm wrong, I will eat this blog.
Everyone's trying to get a little piece of that American Idol pie. Even TLC's hopping onto the bandwagon with their horrible sounding new show, which pits office workers against each other in a singing competition. Whatever happened to company baseball teams? At least then there was no assault on my tender eardrums. Joey "I used to be in N'Sync and had another singing show where tone deaf people mangled lyrics" Fatone is co-hosting with Spice Girls Mel B. How'd she get involved in this auditory nightmare? Anyway, the Dancing With the Stars alums will try to snag a few more minutes of fame by surprising offices and doing on-site auditions (good god, please don't come here!), then the chosen few will get to perform a singing/dancing number in a competition against another group from another business. While I'm sure that every office has one secret karaoke addict, that doesn't mean that viewers should have to hear their warbling, unless there is a bunch of alcohol involved. I've heard some of my former co-workers trying out tunes in the hallways. Not pretty. Not to mention that I'm sure bosses around the country will be thrilled about the workplace productivity when The Singing Office comes town in this time of economic troubles. For now, I'll stick to trying to beat Rock Band... at home, where no one has to hear me.
