Television Musings - Rants and Raves from a Romance Writer

By Kathy Carpenter

Superstars of Dance

This is the latest dance show. Although this is a competition we don’t vote or have a say. So it’s more for the entertainment of the dance.

Eight countries, US, China, Argentina, Ireland, Russia, South Africa, India and Australia, are competing in group, duo’s, and solo categories. There is one judge from each country and the judge from the country performing doesn’t vote. Each judge gives a score form 1-10. So, far six is the lowest. Mostly sevens, eights, nines, and tens,
There is no rhyme or reason to which dance the country performs in what order. Each country goes through and performs one of the three. Then they repeat in the same order.

It’s wonderful to see dances from around the world. To invest in some culture.

Looks like the show will be about three or four weeks. Do not know if it has what it takes to be a repeating show.

Another new show which will debut this week is Howie Do It. It stars Howie Mandel doing practical jokes. I love Howie on Deal or No Deal. This one I may or may not like. I could probably take it or leave it. But I hate the name.

One more comment this week. Lipstick Jungle I said it was cancelled but there may be new life and I hope so. After watching last Friday I saw previews for this week advertising as the season finale.
