    Wayne Newton got sympathy votes! I thought he was by far the worst, but they scored higher than Floyd Patterson, who while not good, was better than Wayne. None of the judges wanted to say anything bad about Wayne. In fact, if you just listen to their comments, you'd think he scored higher than he did.

    I was just amazed that MArk Cuban was dancing 7 weeks after hip replacement surgery....Is that true? That is what he said on the show.

    This is going to be a good season. Everyone came on stage with a bang..it will be tough in the judging. So everyone will need to work on their techniques etc.

    I wonder how Cheryl feels about getting Wayne? Given his years of entertaining and music, I really didnt know what to expect but I did expect more.

    I love Julianne. She always looks like she's having so much fun! After last year with Apollo I didn't think I'd want to see her with another partner, but she and race car guy looked great together. I'd love to see Julianne and Derek (her bro) and their partners go far.

    What did you think about Drew as a co-host? I wasn't impressed.

    Obviously not a boxing fan ;)

    Floyd Mayweather Jr. absolutely the best pound for pound boxer in the world. Cocky as all get out, but he truly is a cut above the rest of the boxers in the world.

    Floyd, while stiff and mechanical...was a bit underscored....

    Wayne was overscored...

    D'oh - Yeah Floyd Patterson wouldn't do very well in a dance contest right now... Hey, at least I knew another boxer named 'Floyd'. :eek:

    Wayne was FUBAR!!! Seriously I can understand that he is a bit old and out of shape, but he has been in Vegas performing for 40+ years. Perhaps all the plastic surgery has made him stiff, but really!! He has to be contracted to stay at least until the first half of the season or he would have been shot day 1

    Cuban - also gotta go - no one cares about the billionaire and his ego

    Gotta say though - Seymore and Garth look great!!

    Terrible. He looks like a Ryan Seacrest wanna-be but acts like a Dunkleman (shifting around not knowing what to do while the real host talks). :rolleyes:

    Just read this in an E!Online article. I didn't realize they were married:

    Partner Alec Mazo, who won the inaugural Dancing crown with Kelly Monaco two summers ago, told the fans at home to reroute their votes to his wife of four weeks, Edyta Sliwinska, who's dancing this season with All My Children star Cameron Mathison.

    One thing that bothered me about Mark Cuban was him lip synching the words to the song while dancing... I don't know...I just found it distracting...

    I agree! I actually enjoyed his dancing and his enthusiasm, but the constant singing was annoying and distracting.

    This competition is dancing. If he wants to be a singer, he needs to go to . . . well, somewhere else!

    Cuban's suit was horrible. Was he supposed to look like a bum or something? I just didn't get it. And I couldn't tell if he was singing with the music or if his mouth was just opening like that.

    Yeah, it ties in with the theme of the song. "Old worn out clothes and shoes"
