It didn't matter what season it was, the whole show - dancing, judges and contestants, had grown tiresome. Chloris Leachman frustrated me to such a degree I even stopped watching. But then along came Gilles Marini, Lil Kim, Ty Murray, Melissa Rycroft, The Woz, Julianne's boyfriend, Chuck Wicks, Denise Richards, Shawn Johnson, and a few others that really didn't interest me.

But not all was lost - someone did hold my attention. I couldn't wait to see the outstanding dancing of Frenchman Gilles Marini. 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. Carrie Ann Inaba even mentioned how lucky his wife was.

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 wins an A for effort with he tremendous work he put into his dancing which kept him around until near the end. I didn't really like Lil' Kim until I saw her dance so amazingly well. Derek Huff did wonders with his choreography and inspiration. They obviously had real chemistry, and they demonstrated a high level of talent and skill as well. It was a shock that she was eliminated with four others remaining.

As it stands right now the last couples in competition are Melissa and Tony, Ty and Chelsie, Gilles and Cheryl, Shawn and Mark. Melissa came in shortly before the show when Jewel was injured. 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 performances have been close to perfection, earning her perfect scores in the last show. Perfect scores do not protect you from being voted off, however. 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. Ty's experience riding bulls and guiding horses doesn't translate directly to the dance floor and provided a big cache of voting fans who normally wouldn't watch Dancing with the Stars. Shawn Johnson's Olympic performance was so endearing, and her dancing is the same. And rounding this amazing cast of celebrities is Gilles Marini who didn't make a move I didn't absolutely love.

Just which couple has the chops and the votes to win the judge's hearts? An additional couple returns home this week. After that the three last dance teams have a final dance-off. I can't wait until the final show airs! Luckily I have a DVR for a backup just in case something comes up.

On a side note, one of the best ways to watch Dancing with the Stars is in high definition. After fifteen years with my regular 32-inch screen I decided to take the leap and make the HDTV upgrade with a new widescreen TV. Holy Cow! HD really gives you that 'you're really there' feeling. I had no idea how good it was. All I had to do once I got my new HD TV was contact Comcast Cable, my local provider, and add HD channels to my already low priced service. By taking advantage of a bundle special for my area I was able to add Comcast High Speed Internet and Comcast Digital Voice. My download speeds and television picture are by far the fastest and clearest I have ever experienced with my new broadband service and HD Comcast Cable. 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. I suggest using the web to find the best Comcast Cable promotions and savings out there. You really can save a bunch if you know where to find them. Consider Comcast's bundle called Triple Play. You can get each service in one discounted package for huge savings over purchasing each one individually.
