Last night was the big final performance night on Dancing with the Stars and it didn’t disappoint. Each of the three couples performed in a Samba Smackdown and they went free-style with some incredible lifts and leaps! Tune in tonight to see who will take home that mirror-ball trophy!
After Dancing, I did a little DVR cleaning and watched Fringe from last week. It was marvelous with performances by both John Noble and the actor who played his friend in the mental institution. Scary stuff and I don’t mean the Fringe science. If you ask me, man’s inhumanity to man is worse than anything science can dream up.
On that less than happy note, let’s look at tonight on TV.
