Cupid premieres while Dancing Stars and Idol compete

The joint was jumping on Dancing with the Stars last night as the couples took on two new dances, the energetic Lindy Hop and the sultry Argentine Tango.

Our full Dancing with the Stars report is here. First — I have a new love. The show is called Any Dream Will Do and it’s on BBCAmerica.

BBC America has itself another hit

Remember a summer or so ago there was that show to pick the new leads for Grease on Broadway? Well, this is like that only they’re casting the lead of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. I love that show, love the music and I love reality talent shows, but wait, there’s more. One of the judges is the fun and flirty John Barrowman from Torchwood. He’s fantabulous! As a matter of fact, my ring tone is John singing Anything Goes. This past weekend was the two-hour audition special, showing you how they got their top twenty. Next week those guys start performing American Idol style in order to win the part. I can’t wait.

Castle is still on the DVR so don’t tell me who dunnit. I’ve also got a Sarah Connor and Dollhouse to clear from Friday along with my other favorite, Running in Heels. Don’t know when I’ll get to it all since tonight is also jam packed, take a look.

Cupid's cast includes SK interview Sarah Paulson

Tonight On TV — Tuesday, March 31

ABC should win the night despite the fact that they’re starting with Better off Ted, then it’s the Dancing with the Stars results show, and finally it’s the premiere of Cupid, a series about a mental patient who believes he is the old love god.

CBS gets tense with a new episode of NCIS, then The Mentalist goes after a criminal who is using hypnosis to kill, and a psychologist disappears on Without a Trace.

The CW does Three Men and a Baby on Reaper and then its tutoring time on 90210.

NBC has the Biggest Loser: Couples, and a victim claims the devil was her attacker on Law & Order: SVU.

Fox? Oh wait, forget what I said about ABC winning the night with Cupid, American Idol is on and it will be followed by the utterly ridiculous Osbournes Reloaded. We all know, American Idol rules!

Over on cable

Tonight is the premiere of a new season of My Boys on TBS and Oxygen gets Pretty Wicked.

Last Restaurant Standing is new on BBCAmerica, the Chopped chefs work with chocolate and mussels (but hopefully not at the same time) on Food Network.

MTV has a big night with the season finale of T.I.’s Road to Redemption and new episodes of G’s to Gents and Dogg After Dark.

VH1 begins a new series special, 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders of the 80’s. Those are always fun.

Friday Night Lights will be back for two more years

News and notable

Rumor has it that Dustin Milligan will be leaving 90210 at the end of this season.

I also heard a rumor around the convention floor that Danneel Harris will be returning to One Tree Hill.

There will be two more seasons of Friday Night Lights. The little show that could has wrapped up another split deal with DirecTV that gives them first air rights with NBC airing the episodes a few months later.

ABC is in development on Shark Den a US version of the UK series Dragon’s Den where inventors pitch their products to a panel of millionaires in hopes of getting funded.

Lucy Lawless and Andy Whitfield will star in the Starz production Spartacus: Blood and Sand.

Michael J. Fox is taking on a recurring role on Rescue Me and that makes me smile very wide. Always happy to see him on my TV screen.
