CBS’s new dance show courting Paula Abdul, ‘Idol’ ratings do beat DWTS

Paula Abdul eyes

Another day, another show courting Paula Abdul. CBS is ordering up a new dance show for next season called “Got To Dance,” a British reality show which is open to all ages, all genres.

This Hollywood Reporter story says CBS is interested in Abdul. Does that mean she’ll take it? At this point, who knows? She’s turned down “So You Think You Can Dance,” “Dancing With the Stars” and a reboot of “Star Search.”

- The top 11 results show drew 21 million viewers, down 10 percent from a year ago but almost 20 percent in the younger 18-49 demographic.

And “Idol” still beat “Dancing With the Stars” this week with its painfully bad Billboard No. 1’s top 11 show Tuesday. Preliminary numbers had DWTS edging out “Idol” 23.9 million (its final figure) to 23.8 million (”Idol” early figure). Revised, “Idol” actually ended up with 24.2 million on Tuesday night. The show also finished well ahead of DWTS with 8.4/23 ratings/share for 18-49 year olds.

- I’m skipping the Paige Miles exit interview with various reporters because I really don’t care much about her. With other outlets, she has already said she was surprised she was going home. She apparently was the only person on Earth who was surprised. She also has had to fight laryngitis for three weeks.

-Sanjaya was caught speeding. He was rockin’ at 110 miles per hour.

- Beefcake warning: Tim Urban topless photos are floating around, courtesy of a modeling web site, “Actors, Models & Talent for Christ.”

Tim just got more votes. Not from me people! Sheesh. By the way, I think someone took a picture of my body, and photoshopped Tim’s head onto it. Yeah, that’s me right there.

I normally look forward to the exit interviews, but let’s start with the top 10. At least they will make the tour so we will hear about them after next Wednesday night. I’m curious if Paige was asked what she thought of having the worst performance ever on Idol.

Here is how to determine if Paula will take a job. If it makes sense – No.

Teddy died just over 2 months ago. Maybe they didnt want to hear him roll over in his grave if Andrew, Tim, Aaron or Casey attempted one of his songs. Ugh, so glad that won’t happen. Eitehr of these guys singing, not Teddy rolling.

Paula is waiting on X-Factor to begin. I’m sure Simon is paying her mega bucks.

Hopefully, she is healthy and getting great, sound advice. It appears the world is hers right now, and Simon’s of course. Do you think Randy is testing the waters as well?

I think Paula’s making a mistake as she’ll be off tv for over 2 years when XF starts in Fall 2011. She should do something now to keep her face out there, make money, and show that she can do something w/o simon.

Oh my! Tim the beefcake! Who’d have known! This photo alone will open doors for him regardless of WHAT happens with Idol. And I especially like he’s with the Models for Christ – a christian organization. And before I get slammed, he’s simply shirtless – he’s not posing for a centerfold. There is a difference. But wow! What a cutie!

Good Morning Everybody.

Today’s Quote: “Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.”

I do hope that we will be seeing Paula again on TV sooner rather than later. I for one am looking forward to that time.

I guess the tweens will have a ball with Tim’s picture!!!

Morning. Tim looks harmless enough to me. Kinda cute in a tween sort of world. If I were 13 years old, I would be all about Tim Urban, whether he could sing or not.

Can’t wait until we get another picture of Carrie Underwood and the women start to call for it to be removed:) It could be far worse, it could be David Archuleta without his shirt on, another picture of hippie Ace, or a picture of Adam with his cod piece on.

I’d love to see “The guy who came in second to Kris Allen (you know, the guy who actually won) wear a “sea urchin” codpiece (to go with the outfit he wore in Japan.) You think he can hit the high notes now?? :-)

Good Morning!

“Hot Tub Time Machine” is this year’s “The Hangover”/”Pineapple Express”/”Tropic Thunder”.

Yes, it’s rude, crude, misogynistically (sp? is it a word, even?) guy-centric, but, dear bloggers, I haven’t laughed this hard since the first time I saw “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”!

Terrific actors (John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Clark Duke, Craig Robinson), crazy dialogue, sight gags stolen from Laurel/Hardy (Crispin Glover will make you howl), and a time travel back to the horrible 80’s – this is worth paying money for… if you can handle the movie’s sense of humor.

Yeh Mercedes, “they” are saying it’s a great movie. Thanks for the tip.

“Chloe” will probably get nasty reviews from male critics, but I quite enjoyed this revenge drama gone wrong! Directed by quirky Canadian Atom Egoyan, the movie stars Julianne Moore as an attractive, “mature” woman, Catherine, who tires of hubby Liam Neeson’s constant flirting with students and waitresses. She hires a prostitute (scheming Amanda Seyfried as Chloe) to seduce the husband and gets hot and bothered by the working girl’s sexy reports.

Neat little puzzler! Remake of French movie “Nathalie”. Nudity might be shocking to some, but it’s done tastefully.

If it didn’t see the “Actors, Models & Talent for Christ” designation I would think that it was something really kinky. Bring out the bears. ;)

I question the timing of releasing this pics after he was in the bottom 2. Tim just bought himself another week, imo. PS. He looks much better topless than Casey, just sayin’.

Sorry, but from the neck down, yum. From the neck up, eh. Little too young, little too soft for my taste.

A local news site headline brought me chills: “Ninjas invade West Linn home, rob Clackamas jewelry store”

They’re out there folks! Beware of Ninjas.

K&Cfan, hopefully Tim and Big Mike are giving Casey a few pointers.

JT, I think we need a new movie: Ninja Zombies.

WARNING: Wednesday’s results show will be graced with “The Beaver.” Karen Walker said it best, “Grab a bottle, hunker down, and pray for daylight!”

And speaking of cougars… (which I was earlier) – if Kara sees that pic, she’ll be beating herself up saying #$%% – “I asked the wrong guy to take off his shirt!!”

That pictures been available for weeks. Seems everyone here would be purusing vote for the worst, seeing as how they actually write more original content regarding idol than anywhere else. For instance they were highlighting each of the semi-finalists for weeks before TV revealed them, showing us their you tube videos and such, exposing the Toddrick Hall fraud, getting the scoop on Big Mike’s dad and whether it would get him kicked out.

This is the second ad I’ve seen posted as a comment. They certainly should sell all their merchandise at rock bottom prices considering what they’re NOT paying in advertising! This crap has to go!!!
