MONDAY (6/22)
  • Jon & Kate Plus Eight (TLC, 9pm):  Jon & Kate make some life-changing decisions. Well, Kate technically made the decision; Jon just didn’t want to argue.
  • Charm School (VH1, 9pm):  Season premiere. “Former contestants from VH1 reality shows work for charity (and a chance to win $100,000).” No good deed comes without incentives.
  • Make It or Break It (ABC Family, 9pm):  Series premiere. “In this drama focusing on the lives of teen gymnasts who strive to make it to the Olympics, new girl Emily Kmetko begins training alongside veterans who are both impressed with and threatened by her.” This could bring a whole new definition to the term “punch front.”
  • Run’s House (MTV, 10pm):  “The family rallies around JoJo after he’s charged with marijuana possession.” This whole time they had a connection within the home.

Dancing with the Stars 7: Week 6 Loser

Dancing with the Stars' Cloris Leachman and Corky Ballas

Last night on , the remaining seven competitors each performed two dances. After completing their individual numbers, the couples then all gathered for a group hip hip number.

By night’s end:

  • Two competitors (Cody and Maurice) suffered noteworthy drops from their recent season highs.
  • Warren got his third 25 of the competition after the Rumba. That’s a mark he has not yet been able to beat.
  • Lance, who was scolded last week for his West Coast Swing, received a 27 for his Jive. Not only was that his personal best - it was Monday’s best. (Brooke only had a 26 for the Rumba.)
  • Cloris plunged way back into the teens. Although she had been hovering in the 20’s the past two weeks, she only got a 15 yesterday for her Cha Cha Cha.

Dancing with the Stars 7: Week 5 Loser

Dancing with the Stars' Toni Braxton and Alex Mazo

Last night’s episode of turned out to be quite an interesting event. Although we are used to seeing frustration on the celebrities’ faces, we are not accustomed to seeing clueless looks on the professionals as well.

Ironically, the teachers most familiar with the new styles they were given (Tony with the Hustle and Lacey with the West Coast Swing) received some of the lowest numbers of the night. Meanwhile, those coming into their dances cold (Derek, Cheryl and Kym) scored well.

For the first time, the parquet floor saw the pairs take on either the Hustle, Jitterbug, West Coast Swing or Salsa. Interestingly enough, the styles were so new—even some of the professionals struggled. ( even had to research online!)

Which competitors rose to the challenge…and which ones needed more schooling? Read on!

Last Tuesday, chef Rocco DiSpirito and Karina Smirnoff came very close to being eliminated from Dancing with the Stars. But thanks to Misty May-Treanor’s nasty accident, the couple was given another chance to stay in the game.

Unfortunately, the remaining 9 pairs were not able to write off Week 3 completely. The scores from this Monday’s dances are going to be combined with last week’s numbers to determine Week 4’s elimination.
