    Wow, bravo to Dancing With the Stars for their casting, for the first time since…maybe season 1? I will watch if they really do have Lolo, Kacy, Randy, Sadie and hopefully a few more I care about (as a straight 25 year old male). Housewives and F/D list actors/actresses and old actors/actresses and soap stars and reality TV stars (like a Kardashian or Bachelor/Bachelorettes) and people like Nancy Grace….do not interest me in the SLIGHTEST, in fact they are huge deterrents and make watching the show impossible.

    I realize im not the target demo so i cant bash them THAT much for their casting, im sure it excites old women when General Hospital stars are on and an Osmond is on and tween/teen girls when Pretty Little Liar actresses are on and what not…but thats not for me at all.

    Other deterrents? Not a fan of how sleezy it is, Makism dating/aka banging everyone (including JLo wtf?), how so many end up dating or marriages fall apart afterwards…then theres the outfits, i really respect how classy and artistic the outfits are on “So You Think You Can Dance” , but why are they floss that has been bedazzled on DWTS?

    But anyways, if its true, good casting, i will watch for Lolo, Kacy, Randy and Sadie.

    Omg that AHS poster looks great. As a gay man I can honestly say I’ve never been so interested in a woman’s chest.

    You did not mention that Netflix is paying NBC $2 million per episode. It sounds incredible to me.

    This is why I’m done with TVLine. Save the spoilers for the main article. I spent 4 hours yesterday trying to catch up to that god awful but addicting PLL. 2 more episodes to go today, but doesn’t matter anymore….While we’re at it, when you have a headline that reads “(spoiler) talks about that shocking death scene” accompanied by a picture of that person, THAT is spoiling it.

    I’m seriously deleting your page as a bookmark.

      It also annoys me when the spoiler is in the URL. But hey, I shouldn’t go to TV gossip sites not expecting to be spoiled after an episode has aired ;)
