"Dancing with the Stars" Demo Consists Mostly of Women, Old People


Yeah, what a shocker.

Some suspect this demographic skew may be partly because attending a live taping means getting dressed up - not, like, $200 jeans and flip-flops dressed up but, like, sequins and silk shirts dressed up. But hey, any show that can get 200 grandmothers and Ron Jeremy in the same room has got to be doing something right. - Contributed by Angela Natividad

I consider that the Judges of "Dancing with the Stars" may just as well not exist. If their marking is always the same, or varies by one or two points, it is always the audience's vote that counts.

If the first couple is marked 10, it means that no one can be better. Does appearance and gait not count?

The judges of "So You Think You Can Dance" do far better judging.
