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.
It's #MyJamMonday on Week 2 of Dancing with the Stars (of course Bruno's is "Born This Way") and, if nothing else, the song choices serve to highlight the age distribution between, say, Bethany Mota and Tavis Smiley on the show's 19th season. For the second week in a row, it's Night 1 of 2. Who will be given the boot on Tuesday's results show? Here's a recap of tonight's performances:
It's Dancing with the Stars déjà vu Tuesday night, with the results show rising like a phoenix from the ashes. (Not to fear, though: While there will also be aTuesday results show next week, the show will then return to its single Mondaynight format.) Julianne Hough is wearing a mostly sheer top, which somehow manages to still be more modest than her Monday night ensemble. To the 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."

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:
He's got shows on radio and TV. He's unafraid of controversy and would love to be the new King of All Media. Just call Tavis Smiley the thinking man's Howard Stern. This year, the author of six books and host of a National Public Radio show has added PBS news talk-show host to his resume. TV Guide Online: You've talked about having "conversations of substance." How are your interviews different from other talk shows?Tavis Smiley: I could ask all the regular pop-culture questions. But I try to stay away from that. For example, I interviewed Anthony Minghella, the director of Cold Mountain, and I asked him how he could do a movie set in the Civil War and walk all around the issue of slavery. He was ecstatic. He said, 'You are the first person to ask why I did not do any scenes about that.' So that's what I mean. It's in [my approach]. But more important, [my shows] are the first on NPR and on PBS to come from the West Coast. TVGO: W
