Head over to TheStar.ca for my take on Tuesday night’s 16th season finale of Dancing with the Stars. It was a close, entertaining contest, and ended up being a pick-em between country singer Kellie Pickler and Disney girl Zendaya. For Pickler’s pro partner, Derek Hough, it was his fourth Mirror Ball trophy, a record.
The news that ABC plans to cut DWTS down to one two-hour show a week should be welcomed by viewers tired of sitting through 59 minutes of filler to get to the next day results. Kudos to CBC’s Battle of the Blades for adopting the same once-a-week format when that reality show returns for a fourth season on Sundays in the fall.
