So, I watched it last night. I like to watch at least the first episode of each season so I can discuss it with people when they ask. I can't believe how many people watch the show. Although I thought Jennifer Grey was very good, I think the whole using the Patrick Swayze thing was a bit overdone and this is coming from a guy who has always loved Jennifer Grey. I thought the best dancer of the night was Kyle Massey. Amazing. I think the only reason Kyle did not beat Jennifer was the judges were not expecting Kyle to do so well and also they wanted to give everyone their Patrick Swayze moment.
The worst of the night was The Situation. Yes, he only had a week to practice, BUT, and this is a big but, I heard he was being a tool to the rest of the cast and crew and over the weekend he had a lot of opportunity to practice and chose not to as much as he could have. I don't think he will be any better than last week. As much as I love her, I think Margaret Cho will probably be the first to say goodbye because she is not as well known as The Hoff who I thought would be much, much better.
