Well, we've arrived at the end of another long, hard season of Dancing with the Stars. I don't know about you guys, but I totally empathize with the physical pain the contestants are in at this point. I've gotten multiple leg cramps from sitting on my couch watching these performances week after week.
Per usual, the two-hour final episode — preceded by an hourlong look back at the season — is an exercise in fluff and short-term nostalgia.
Alfonso Ribeiro has occasionally mentioned his groin injury on Dancing with the Stars, often in a joking context with co-host Erin Andrews, but one doesn't get the sense of just how serious the condition is until speaking with Ribeiro one-on-one.
"It's been really grueling for me, because it's constantly doing treatment on my body," Ribeiro tells TVGuide.com.

I had someone at my house last night show up at 9 p.m., working on me 'til10:30 p.m., working on my body, trying to help make it last. It's really been very frustrating."

We're back with another Dancing with the Stars results show, before theTuesday edition retreats back into its glittery cave next week. A quick early observation: Can someone please inform Sadie Robertson that the camera can and will pan to her at any given opportunity? She's got a baaaad case of resting bitchface. End rant.
Tom and Erin waste no time in getting to the first set of results.

The 19th season of Dancing with the Who Are These People Stars kicked off in spectacular fashion Monday night, with a cast that proves the show is stretching further and further in its interpretation of the term "celebrity." It's clear from the get-go that new judge Julianne Hough is thrilled to be back in the ballroom -- and her boobs seem pretty excited too. (Is this TV-14?) With 13 routines to cram into two hours, Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews waste no time in getting the performances underway — and we won't either:
