American Idol has gone dull. And we simply can’t stop turning in to see Kate Gosselin’s awful dance skills. I’ve compared Kate’s dancing skills to 1. a person with two broken legs and a back brace, 2. the robot in Lost in Space, only more rigid, and 3. Frankenstein, only slower and less graceful. Buzz Aldrin and Kate are battling it out for worst dancers in history. Good thing this isn’t a talent competition or they’d be in serious trouble.
“Dancing With the Stars.” Kate Gosselin’s second dance about her difficult life — a jive performed to Elton John’s “I’m Still Standing” — became the most watched TV show in the country last week, attracting 23 million people. It beat both broadcasts of “American Idol” — a feat that has not been accomplished in nearly five years by any show without the help of a Super Bowl lead-in. (This week, Gosselin pasodobled to “Paparazzi” and 21 million tuned in.)
