The judging for this season has been horrible.
Poor Ralph, I think he deserved to go to the end.
I really do not get the love for Hines OR Kirstie. Ok Hines is good but he doesn't seem sharp enough for me and gets high scores out of nowhere (what kind of curse have you put on the judges?) and Kirstie, she's my Bristol Palin. I really don't see what anybody sees in her. Her dances and routines, I find them consistently boring and not that musical.
Why does everybody wish ill will on Chelsea JUST because of Mark? That isn't right! She doesn't deserve that. She tries pretty hard, is confidant when dancing, and seems to be a pretty bubbly person. I hope Chelsea wins the whole thing.
However you also need to factor in that Disney owns ABC. What better way to make your roster of stars better/visible/high profile than to stick them in a dancing competition that they have control over?
I agree about the FCC thing. When a show is paying out big amounts of money, it should be subject to the same rules as game shows... otherwise the true winner is not given a chance to win.
