DANCING WITH THE STARS: Season 23 – The Results rehashed and rehashed over and over again the performances, stretching into a two-hour show that could have easily and amply filled just one hour. Still, the lack of material was surprising for a show which seems to have oodles of footage with no time to show it. And what about the confessionals? Can we please bring back the confessionals? It is a great segment to show the couples relaxed and more themselves, hanging out with their partners shooting the breeze. Instead, tonight we got the same footage shown to death and very little innovative segments. In the end, also to no excitement, Rick Perry & Emma Slater were released from the competition. They had the lowest scores two weeks in a row so that was no surprise.
What continues to be surprising is Amber Rose & Maks Chmerkovskiy ending up in jeopardy two weeks in a row. Either this is a producer tactic to scare them and the audience or Chmerkovskiy has lost his fan base and Rose doesn’t have enough support to keep her solid in the competition. Still, the most unusual thing about DWTS: 23 is the lack of high scores given unto the couples. So, either this season lacks the talent from previous seasons or the judges are becoming sticklers for technique, or maybe they are just grumpier. This season couples leap for joy when they get an eight, never mind a nine or the coveted ten. I know it’s early but by now someone, anyone, should have received a nine, not four, not even three or two but at least one. At this rate, the winners could dance off with the trophy never having received a perfect score. Lets hope not, stay tuned.
