Greetings to the New Season: ABC – UPDATED

Another day, another network upfront. Now it’s time to say hello to ABC’s Fall 2010 line-up. No accompanying videos at the moment, but you can get an idea of what to expect from the descriptions they’ve provided…and be sure to let us know what you think of the potential of the new series!

UPDATE: Hey, look: ABC came through with videos!

MONDAY

8 – 10 PM: Dancing with the Stars

10 – 11 PM: Castle

TUESDAY

8 – 9 PM: No Ordinary Family: The Powells are about to go from ordinary to extraordinary. After 16 years of marriage, Jim and Stephanie’s relationship lacks the spark it once had, and their family life now consists of balancing work and their two children, leaving little time for family bonding. During a family vacation set up by Jim in an attempt to reconnect, their plane crashes into the Amazon River. But this is where the fun starts for the Powells, as they soon discover that something’s not quite right. Each of them now possesses unique and distinct superpowers. But saving and savoring their family life will be equally important, as they try to find purpose for their new powers and embark on a journey to find out what defines and unifies them.

The Powells are a totally relatable family who happen to be a little bit amazing. Michael Chiklis (“The Shield”) stars as Jim Powell, Julie Benz (“Dexter”) as Stephanie Powell, Romany Malco (“The 40-Year-Old Virgin”) as George St. Cloud, Tate Donovan (“Damages”) as Mitch McCutcheon, Autumn Reeser as Katie Andrews, Christina Chang as Yvonne Cho, Kay Panabaker as Daphne Powell and Jimmy Bennett as JJ Powell. The pilot was written and executive-produced by Jon Feldman. The series is executive-produced by Feldman, Greg Berlanti, Morgan Wandell and David Semel, who also directed the pilot. Joe Hartwick, Jr. serves as producer.

9 – 10 PM: Dancing with the Stars (Results Show)

10 – 11 PM: Detroit 1-8-7”: What does it take to be a detective on America’s most dangerous streets? Get ready to be part of the action when a documentary crew rolls with some of Detroit’s finest, offering an insider’s glimpse behind the curtain of a Homicide Unit. The cameras unearth the crisis and revelation, heartbreak and heroism of these inner city cops — moments of raw exposure when they address us directly, as well as private moments when they forget they’re being filmed.

There’s the damaged but driven Detective Louis Fitch, a wily homicide vet who is the most respected — and most misunderstood — man in the division; Detective Damon Washington, Fitch’s new partner, who finds the first day on the job is a trial by fire, complicated by the imminent birth of his first child; Detective Ariana Sanchez, sexy, edgy and beautiful, who has emerged from a rough background to become a rising star in the department; Narcotics undercover cop John Stone, a streetwise smooth talker, clever and quick with a smile made for the movies, who is teamed with Sanchez — a combustible pairing rife with conflict and sexual tension; Sergeant Jesse Longford, a 30-year veteran struggling with his impending retirement from the force and the city he loves, who, together with his partner, Detective Aman Mahajan — a fully Americanized son of Indian immigrants — form an amusing mismatch of experience and enthusiasm, intellect and instinct, old school and new world, but whose combined skills have never encountered a case that couldn’t be cleared; and all are headed by Lieutenant Maureen Mason, a strong-willed single mom struggling to balance home and work. “Detroit 1-8-7” stars Michael Imperioli (“The Sopranos”) as Detective Louis Fitch, Jon Michael Hill as Detective Damon Washington, James McDaniel (“NYPD Blue”) as Sergeant Jesse Longford, Aisha Hinds (“True Blood”) as Lieutenant Maureen Mason, Natalie Martinez as Detective Ariana Sanchez, D.J. Cotrona as Detective John Stone and Shaun Majumder as Detective Aman Mahajan. The pilot was written by Jason Richman. Executive producers are Richman, David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and David Zabel. Jeff Nachmanoff directed the pilot.

Dancing with the Stars 9.17 — Round Eight Results Show

117798_3975_pre

Joanna and Derek surprised everyone last night. Their “paso doble from the future” was creepy, inventive, and hypnotic. I usually don’t like sitting through same performance again, but I can stomach this one.

I guess the fans appreciated the refreshing routine as well because Joanna and Derek are safe.

Michael Buble reminds me of Harry Connick, Jr. and Josh Groban. I don’t really understand what they do. Are just they singers? Are they songwriters? Do they play instruments? I’ve heard Michael Buble’s name mentioned over the past few years, but this is first time I’ve heard his music. I can honestly say that I’ve never met anybody who owns one of his albums. Is this what adult contemporary sounds like?

Mya is safe. Duh. If she doesn’t make it to the finals, I will personally have “Dancing with the Stars” cancelled by the sheer virility of this blog. I’m sure all of my five readers would follow me to the gates.

This “Dance Center” segment with ESPN’s Kenny Mayne, Jerry Rice, and Len Goodman is hilarious. Have they done this before? If you haven’t seen Kenny’s online web series, “Mayne Street,” click here.

I don’t know what’s going on with this dance featuring Mark Ballas and some girl named Sabrina Bryant. I guess viewers voted to see this happen — some goofy kid even designed their costumes.

Is Michael Buble this century’s Frank Sinatra? I don’t even want to think about that.

Wow, Donny and Kym are safe. The judges were really hard on Donny last night, so I thought he was definitely cooked.

Hey it’s Susan Boyle! Here’s some food for thought: Is Susan Boyle this century’s Frank Sinatra?

The string section needs to shut the hell up — I can barely hear her. Susan Boyle’s rise to fame is fascinating, though. She was plucked from her humble, yet lonely lifestyle and placed under the global spotlight. Months later, she nearly went bonkers. Norm MacDonald told a story about seeing a hypnotist named Raveen the Impossibilist. During the show, Raveen made a guy believe he was a chicken. When the hypnotist snapped his fingers, the man came back to reality. Norm didn’t really understand that logic. How could one’s state of mind switch between two completely different states so quickly? Your brain would be shattered. Obviously, Norm is just being funny, but the situation is similar to Susan Boyle’s drastic transition.

As much as I don’t care for Aaron Carter, he is a much better dancer than Kelly. His dances last night proved that. Still, I’m not surprised he’s going home given how much America loves Ozzy’s daughter.

Lastly, Len and Aaron need to stop pushing this father/son son thing. It’s too weird.

Dancing with the Stars 9.13 — Round Six Results Show

117795_0406_pre

The 2009-10 NBA season kicked off tonight, so I was at odds with how to schedule my television viewing. Do I watch my beloved Lakers and record the latest installment of “Dancing with the Stars?” Of course, that would mean posting my popular recap hours after the show’s completion. I hate depriving my rabid fan base of high school girls, everyday wives, complacent husbands, and troubled bachelors of my ill-informed thoughts. Or do I switch back and forth between basketball and dance, punching away without direction or composure, so all can devour the review before bedtime? Or do I even revert to Option C and actually record the basketball game, in order to devote my full attention to ABC’s hit show while the night is young? I could always watch the game in the wee hours. Better yet, I could simply check The Scores Report — a website with fantastic writers — to get my fill of NBA news and analysis.

Well, it’s midnight and I’m just now getting to this post. Looking at the title, I obviously won’t be discussing the Lakers. Something happens to the male brain after 12 AM. Whiskey, guitars, friends, women, and Pringles are the only things I want in my vicinity. If these delicacies are unattainable, I just want my bed. And guess what I’m next to right now? My bed, and she looks lovely. Writing, or writing about “Dancing with the Stars” rather, is not my current idea of fun. I really should be outside typing on a rock, just so I don’t fall asleep.

Nothing says procrastination like spending two paragraphs off-topic. For the love of God, it’s “Dancing with the Stars!”

Supposedly, two celebrities will be knocked out tonight. I really hope it’s Michael Irvin and Melissa Joan Hart. I never look forward to their routines. I can handle the others.

Hey, hey, hey. Taylor Swift is the musical guest tonight and she’s looking very pretty with her shame-inducing youthfulness. Taylor Swift is the kind of female celebrity that normal guys think, I bet she’ll grow up to be a class act. I think she would like me if I got the chance to meet her. She’d go out with me. Yeah, she seems nice. Wrong. Taylor Swift will be married to one of those vampires from “Twilight” in less than two years. Don’t be the guy who sits at home in his boxers listening to her latest album (which was downloaded illegally), wondering what could have been.

When you’re craving a date with your pillow, listening to Cuban music is not enjoyable in the slightest. I didn’t catch the name of the band, but really, am I going to buy the record? I’m not going to tell my friend Dave, “Hey Dave, guess what I saw last night — this amazing Cuban band. No, not in person. I actually caught them on ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ No, it’s not weird that I watch it.” As a musician, I love the syncopated rhythms of Latin music. I just can’t handle them right now.

Taylor Swift is on stage performing “Love Story,” a song so ubiquitous a schlub such as myself knows most of the words.

Melissa Joan Hart is going home. She seems like a nice lady, but I’ll never forget when she was all the rage on Nickelodeon. Now, Louie/Chelsea and Michael/Anna will compete in some sort of “dance off” to determine who stays.

Dance Off

Michael Irvin with Anna Demadova (samba)

Michael Irvin always brings the excitement. The problem is, he seems like any other clueless male out there. This dance was no different. He just doesn’t have any technique. He always settles for a simplified routine and I hope the judges don’t let him off the hook.

Louie Vito with Chelsea Hightower (jive)

Louie Vito, on the other hand, packs plenty of content into each of his dances. He focuses on the steps and works well with his partner. I doubt Louie will make it past Round Seven, but judging by his performance tonight, he deserves another chance.

I don’t understand why the judges went with Michael Irvin. Even Len Goodman, who is a stickler for technique, didn’t pick Louie.

Don’t worry about it, Louie. America didn’t even know who you were two months ago.

Dancing with the Stars 9.11 — Round Five Results Show

117793_8005_pre

Each team exceeded my expectations last night. The judges were the most generous they had been in weeks. For the first time all season, nobody received a score under 20.

Tonight’s results show will feature a tribute to Michael Jackson, which will be a bonus if you’ve never seen the professional dancers strut their stuff.

With last night’s powerful dance, Donny Osmond rose to the top of the leader board after receiving a 29 for his Argentine tango. Len Goodman has asked that Donny and Kym tango once more. Osmond’s progressing at the same pace as Mark Dacascos and I expect both of them to be in the final four.

I feel like I haven’t seen Norah Jones in at least 15 years. But here she is, playing a moody organ over a downtempo jazz beat. I’d like to date a cute female musician who sings beautifully and wears nice dresses.

I don’t know what dolts are calling in and voting. How could Micahel Irvin get more votes than Natalie Coughlin? I mean, does anybody notice how hot she is? No, really, she’s a way better dancer.

Norah Jones plays guitar, too. She’s actually pulling off some pretty sweet licks. “Come Away with Me” is one of her hits, but this is the first time I’ve heard it. It’s not half bad.

This “tribute in dance” to Michael Jackson is fun. It seems impossible to put something like this together in a week. On top of this big choreographed performance, the professionals also had to practice not one, but two routines for the previous night’s show. Whatever. I’m sure they get paid more than enough.

America, you are one giant idiot. How the hell did Aaron Carter and Natalie Coughlin wind up on that podium? The judges are shocked as well. Natalie quickly became one of my favorites, and not just because she’s extremely pretty. She’s easily the second-best dancer in this competition. Also, she’s gracious, kind, and really wants to be there. So, Michael Irvin, Melissa Joan Hart, and Kelly Osbourne are better dancers than Aaron Carter and Natalie Coughlin? Really? Fools. I’m going to be extremely disappointed if Natalie is sent home.

Natalie just got screwed. So stupid.

This show is a joke.

Dancing with the Stars 9.9 — Round Four: Results Show

117790_6195_pre

All the women are safe tonight. That goes without saying. Before last night’s episode, the only female contestant really in jeopardy was Melissa Joan Hart. But look at her now. Len Goodman has asked her and partner Mark Ballas to once again perform the Charleston. Melissa surprised everyone last night, finally improving after weeks of sub-par dancing.

I’m predicting either Chuck Lidell or Michael Irvin will get the boot tonight. I mean, who else would it be?

I didn’t even know Shakira was still around. She looks great, glaring and smirking at the audience. I would never listen to this song on my own time, but I would watch the music video on mute.

So, the pros are obviously pros for a reason. That group dance was really cool. It makes a 24 year-old dude like myself consider taking a class to impress a lady. Actually, forget that — the fact that I’m fine with watching this show is enough.

I can’t believe America spared Michael Irvin. Louie Vito and Aaron Carter were obviously…wait, Shakira’s on the screen.

I wonder how well Shakira can dance. I think she should be on the next season of “Dancing with the Stars,” along with Megan Fox, Marisa Miller, and the San Diego Chargers Cheerleaders.

Chuck Lidell and Aaron Carter are the contestants on tonight’s chopping block. Lidell has definitely been entertaining, but he hasn’t contributed one dance with anything close to a textbook accuracy. Aaron Carter actually has a knack for this stuff. And the loser is…

Chuck. He shouldn’t really care, anyway. He still has the MMA and his credibility. Aaron Carter has much more riding on this competition.
