So the new season of Dancing with the Stars has been announced:
I don't watch this show on a regular basis but do try to catch it every once in a while. I actually TiVo it and then fast forward thru most of it. They look pretty funny when they dance in warp speed. Actually, I don't even bother watching the "results" night when someone goes home. The casting is becoming predictable and a bit boring:

Kurt Warner -- obligatory "athlete" (last year was the Bengal's OchoCinco, previous seasons have included Evander Holyfield, Olympian Apolo Anton Ohno and football great Jerry Rice)
Florence Henderson -- obligatory "older woman" (i.e., Jane Seymour, Priscilla Presley, Chloris Leachman)
Bristol Palin -- I'm just going to put her in the WTH? category. I mean Seriously? What the Hell? The only thing this kid is "famous" for is having a DB for a baby daddy and being the offspring of a politician.
Audrina Patridge and The Situation -- the "reality TV star" (a la Trista {the very first Bachelor/Bachelorette contestant}, Kate Gosselin, Melissa Rycroft {former Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader/Bachelor contestant}, Kim Kardashian). Audrina could also fall into "the hot girl" category (see below).
Jennifer Gray -- the "has been" w/ a little bit of dancing capabilities (think Donny Osmond, Joey McIntrye from NKOTB, Joey Fatone, Aaron Carter or Nick Lachey's brother whose name I can never remember). Joing Jennifer this year is "has been" Hasselhoff. Although I can't wait to hear that crazy Bruno shout out something like "don't hassle the hoff!" during an episode!
Other than Audrina Patridge, I don't see anyone emerging as the "the hot girl" -- WWE's Stacy Keibler, Nicole from the Pussycat Dolls, Erin Andrews, Hef's old girlfriend Holly Madison, and who can forget Pamela Anderson???
If he's not careful, Michael Bolton could easily fall into "the stiff" category (Tucker Carlson, George Hamilton, Harry Hamlin, Jerry Springer and Buzz Aldrin) but I'd hope he's some got some soul after all the beautiful music he's produced over the years.
"The youngster" this year is the kid from "That's So Raven" (one year it was a kid from Hannah Montana).
And finally, no one, not even the Situation, can fill the shoes of "the hot guy" Mario Lopez. Enough said.
