Whatever this season may bring, I was tired of the dancing, judges, and contestants. Chloris Leachman frustrated me to such a degree I even stopped watching. Nevertheless then along came Gilles Poet, Lil Kim, Ty Philologue, Melissa Rycroft, The Woz, Julianne's sweetheart, Diet Wicks, Denise Richards, Shawn Johnson, and some others that certainly didn't excite me.

But not all was lost - someone did hold my attention. I could not wait to watch Gilles Marini expertly dance during each episode. After watching the Sex and the City movie, he really spiked my interest. He did not disappoint in Dancing with the Stars! Most of his dances ramp up the heat in the ballroom. One of Dancing's judges, Carrie Ann Inaba, let slip what a lot of us were thinking - Carole, Gilles Marini's wife, one was lucky lady.

Just like her short lived show on E! Network, Denise Richards proved to be equally dull and talentless on Dancing with the Stars The Woz had the personality, but no talent. Chuck Wicks gave it his all, and lasted longer than most. I have to admit I never would have dreamed Lil' Kim, who I knew very little about before the show, would turn out to be an incredible dancer and one of my favorite celebs. With his inspiration and choreography, Derek Huff brought Dancing with the Stars to a professional level little seen in past seasons. They were a team that showed talent as well as chemistry. That's why I was very surprised when Lil' Kim was knocked out of competition with four other couples still alive.

The final four, as I write, are Melissa and Tony, Ty and Chelsie, Gilles and Cheryl, Shawn and Mark. When Jewel fractured the tibia in both her legs five days before the season premiere, that is when Melissa stepped up and took her place. You could tell right off the bat that she has been trained in ballet dancing so it wasn't too hard for her to get up to speed quickly. Her dancing has been almost flawless, earning her a set of perfect scores on the last show. But perfect scores don't always mean you won't be voted off. Just like Sabrina Bryan. She received a perfect score in another season and was eliminated early. Ty Murry is the dancer who has so improved, and is also so love-able. His background as a rodeo star did little to prepare him, but more than likely gives him a wide and different fan base for voters. Shawn Johnson, gold medal winning gymnast, showed us that she can perform on the hard dance floor just as well as she can on a soft mat. And rounding this amazing cast of celebrities is Gilles Marini who didn't make a move I didn't absolutely love.

Who will bring home the trophy? Another celebrity contestant and their partner gets sent off on the next show. Then the final three will have a showdown the next. You can guarantee where I'll be that night!

On a side note, one of the best ways to watch Dancing with the Stars is in high definition. Recently my son convinced me to ditch my regular TV and make the jump to an HDTV. I didn't know what I was missing! You may be thinking what I used to think - how can it make that much of a difference in picture and sound quality? Well, I'm here to tell you it really does. Of course I also had to get HD cable service from my local cable provider, Comcast Cable, but the service is outstanding and the rates for adding high definition service are very low. While I was at it I added Comcast High Speed Internet and Comcast Digital Voice for a super low triple play bundle rate. Not only is my television picture and sound the clearest I've ever experienced, my download speeds are amazing with my new broadband Internet service. As a bonus, they offer digital phone service at flat rate pricing. The phone is very clear and I can call friends and family around the US and never have to pay long distance charges. You do not have to think twice before order Comcast's great package deals. Saving money while enjoying the best cable tv, broadband internet, and digital phone service can offer is a no-brainer. And if you search on the web you can probably some sites that offer the latest Comcast Cable promotions and savings. Consider Comcast's bundle called Triple Play. You can get each service in one discounted package for huge savings over purchasing each one individually.
