Last night was the best Dancing with the Stars episode I’ve seen this season. Everyone really put their best dancing foot forward and it was a delight!
On the opposite side of the road, Sarah Connormade a bold move killing off a main character last night — actually, not as bold as they led us to believe with their teasers. The big “death” was that of Terminator Cromartie who has been tracking them since day one, and that’s exactly why he had to go. This guy was supposed to be the ultimate Terminator and yet he couldn’t find and kill even one of the Connor clan? That was a plot point that was getting on my nerves, so bravo!
Tonight there are two new shows premiering that you might enjoy. Lifetime comes out with new reality competition show called Blush: The Search for the Next Great Make-Up Artist. Put that winner with the Glam God and the Shear Geniusand you’re ready for a night on the town.
SCI FI Channel cuts loose with Cha$e at 10 pm, another reality competition show but more along the lines of the movie Running Man. Contestants have to navigate through a real-life game board, completing tasks and making it to the finish line while avoiding the hunters who are on their tail. It’s a giant game of tag with a big money prize for one weekly winner.
