Dancing's Maks: It Was Cool to See Kirstie Embracing the Jive

Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Hey everyone!

Hope you had a great week! Thanks for voting for us!

First, I want to apologize for the delay. It's been a very busy week and unfortunately I didn't have time. I hope you all enjoyed the show last night. I think we set some sort of record for the most vast array of scores! All joking aside, I'm not trying to find the good in every bad. I'm kind of a perfectionist, but I can't not be happy for Kirstie. I can't be mad that it was the best dance. Yes, the steps were messed up. Yes, we were out of sync. But honestly, it was cool to dance next to her and to feel that positive energy. She was having ...

Dancing's Maks: "Sex on a Stick" Monologue Was Brilliant

Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Hi everyone!

Hope you had a great week! Thanks for voting for us!

OK, so the "sex on a stick" speech. I was auditioning for a Woody Allen movie or something! I don't know what was going on there. I think it had a little Vince Vaughn delivery. After I said all of that, Kirstie was like, "OK, don't ever do that again." It all just sort of came out. The thing is, where I'm from in the Ukraine, we are known for a certain sense of humor and satire. When ...

Dancing's Maks: I Want This Week to Be Trouble-Free

Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Hi everyone!

Hope you had a great week! Thanks for voting for us!

First of all, sorry for the delay. It's been a very busy week and I've been feeling a little under the weather. It's getting to the point in the competition where the scheduling is catching up to all of us now. It always happens around this time of the season. It's one of those, "Oh, here we go again." I'm overdosing on Vitamin C and a bunch of remedies. There's no point of dwelling on it. You just have to get over the hump.

Well, I'll just start by getting this out of the way. Kirstie's shoe came off because she has lost a lot of weight since she started the show. She's lost a couple of sizes and basically her feet lost weight as well, as funny as that sounds. This isn't something you'd notice normally, but we looked down and the shoe looked like it ...

Top Moments: Good Wife's Bad News and Office's New Boss

Julianna Margulies, Tim Guinee

Our top moments of the week:

13. Slowest Learning Curve: Before hearing the results of the Australia Gold sunscreen challenge, Celebrity Apprentice's Team Backbone project manager Mark McGrath says he will take all responsibility if his team loses. It did and he does — until he decides to backpedal and switch the focus to Gary Busey and his crazy antics. But it's too little too late. Silly Mark, don't you know... read more

Matt's TV Week in Review

American Idol

It had been a pretty even-keel season of the reborn American Idol — perhaps too much so — until the Pia bubble burst Thursday night. Maybe a shocking elimination like Pia Toscano's way-too-early ouster is just the sort of wake-up call Idol needs to shock some showmanship into the part of the show that needs it the most: the judging. I've enjoyed the raucous goofiness of Steven Tyler and the glowy glamorous warmth that is Jennifer Lopez, but cheerleading has its limits, and when the closest thing to actual criticism from the panel is Randy (of all people) damning with faint praise by merely saying "Good job," it's clear the judges aren't doing a good job. Or much of a job at all.

Dancing's Maks: My Leg Is Fine

Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Hi everyone!

Hope you had a great week! Thanks for voting for us!

Well, let's just get it out of the way. The fall was a fluke. My leg is fine now. It was a little bit of a pull. I was fine before the show and it was just something that happened at a bad time. I'm taking care of it and it's not going to be a problem. It was completely my fault. Kirstie did nothing wrong and I am so proud of ...

Top Moments: Idol's Shocking Results and Dancing's Falling Star

Pia Toscano, Ryan Seacrest

Our top moments of the week:

14. Best Discovery: When Mrs. McCluskey finds an unconscious Andrew on her couch on Desperate Housewives, instead of acting concerned, she acts like, well, Mrs. McCluskey. She calls Bree and gives her a hint of the problem — "It reeks of Mai Tais, and you gave birth to it." "If I wanted a drunk homo on my couch," she continues, "I would have married my college boyfriend." Apparently, warmth and sensitivity are so 2009 on Wisteria Lane.

Kirstie Alley’s Dancing Fall Was No Big Deal

Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Kirstie Alley

The biggest TV story of the day? The brief tumble Kirstie Alley and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy took on last night's Dancing with the Stars. Maks appeared on Good Morning America Tuesday, as a loop of the stumble played on screen, to explain himself (it boiled down to a charley horse and, "Oops!").

Everyone loves a good fall, but this one wasn't spectacular...

Dancing With the Stars Backstage Report: Kirstie and Maks Take a Fall

Dancing with the Stars

It's one thing to see a celebrity stumble on Dancing With the Stars. It's quite another to see one of the show's most experienced pros — Maksim Chmerkovskiy — do the rumba and fall to the ground after suffering a muscle spasm in his left thigh. And to make matters worse, he was balancing his star, actress Kirstie Alley, at the time so she tumbled to the floor with him.

Dancing's Anna Trebunskaya: Len Was "a Little Harsh" on Sugar Ray

Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya

After being told by Len Goodman that their jive may put them in jeopardy for elimination last week on Dancing with the Stars, Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya sweated it out under the Red Light of Doom before being the last couple called safe. "Ray was nervous, but he was containing it," Trebunskaya tells TVGuide.com. "He's a world class athlete, so he knows how to handle the pressure, but I know he was nervous. We tried to... read more
