Looks like I'm gonna have to watch Dancing with the Stars this season. I was already obligated to give half a damn, supporting the tribe and all. (And honestly, I've said this before, but I'm onboard with Lance Bass. Sure, he doesn't really DO anything all that interesting, but he seems like a totally nice guy, and he was great on Kathy Griffin's show this season. I'm down.)
But now that I hear that Lance's Dancing partner will be none other than Lacey Schwimmer, my total favorite from Season 3 of So You Think You Can Dance? I'm totally committed. God damn it. Looking at the competition, Lance and Lacey seem to have a decent shot at this, too. I'd place them as the pre-season favorites, along with Susan Lucci (those crazy-obsessed soap fans brought Kelly Monaco the Season 1 title), the kid from Hannah Montana (those Disney Channel kids have scar-obsessed fans of their own), and Misty May-Treanor, who might be able to ride some of that residual Olympic goodwill.
So, you know. Yet another television season dominated by The Dance.
