Good points!I have a question. Why would the producers pander to Derek and Mark when clearly the celebrities that are not always the good dancers, but clearly are good people end up pulling out the most support. Clearly Ralph got a lot of votes. He was eight points behind in scores. If the judges have to keep hanging on to their perceived favorites by giving them that one extra point each week to give them the edge of first place, than are they really what the audience wants.
This reminds me of their ridiculous head of Daytime cancelling the soaps. He heard what the fans were saying they liked and hated and kept giving them what they did not want, and than the show was cancelled. Clearly the fans are saying they like the nice people who try, but yet we keep getting people just thrown in for ratings, and if Mark and Derek were so great, than why does Derek always have to have the best ringer of a dancer, and Mark always has to get a point higher in scores?
