Dancing For The Weasels
Those weasels at ABC! Making us wait 56 minutes into the "Dancing With The Stars" results show to update the condition of actor Cristian De La Fuenta, who ended up in the hospital with an arm injury while dancing a samba on Monday's live show.
They kept teasing us all night, before they finally interviewed Cristian in the closing segment during the elmination round. He said his arm injury will require surgery, but doctors say he could continue in the competition if he wanted. So he and partner Cheryl Burke (a two-time champ; she won with Drew Lachey) said they'd stay in the competition. Minutes later, as time ran out, it was announced that actress Shannon Elizabeth and Derek Hough were going home.
I hate these drawn-out results shows. I usually watch on fast-forward, starting with the last five minutes. That's what I'll do from now on, after getting suckered by ABC into watching the whole hour. What a waste of time.
