I'd rather see "Argentine" and "Smirnoff" on the screen spelled right than hear them through the speakers pronounced wrong.

Getting opinions and scores from four judges must also strain the time...

Short memories!  Bianca Ryan, then age 11, won Season 1 in 2006 (as Aliens managed to say first while I was interrupted during the original draft of this post).

No kidding.  I've disliked her from the beginning, but she didn't deserve that.  Meanwhile, Brown and Mandel are still mispronouncing her name.

That's not unusual; Tom Cotter and Taylor Williamson as comedian finalists have been the exception rather than the norm.

I'd say it's a pretty safe bet that for Mat Franco's trick last week, seat 642 was preselected, and he gave Stern a bunch of sixes to choose among, he offered Klum all fours (and himself on all...

Is Keo Motsepe the first non-Caucasian competing pro dancer on DWTS?  It's nice to see some -- won't use the d-word -- variety in that department.

For me last night's results were highly disappointing.

"Beard" guy (AJ, played by Brett Gelman) doesn't hook up with Jess (Jenny Slate) because Jess is married.  Paul Reiser has made one or two appearances as Shep, Jess's husband.

I don't mind at all that the Swedish dialogue is kept in Swedish and subtitled, except that the subtitles are often illegible because they have no background of their own.  The white text is often...

I'm receiving Escape on 60.3 -- WXFT-SD continues to be transmitted as 60.2 -- but the aspect ratios are terrible.  Maybe it's just this one movie.
