Anyone else watch Dancing with the Stars? Season 6 starts in about a half-hour (on the East Coast, USA, time-delayed on the West Coast). The new "stars" are listed here:

I barely watched the first couple seasons; the wife was into it before me. But across time it's become a guilty pleasure for me as well. My wife and I do Ballroom and Latin dancing, so we can discuss the steps, the judging, how the professionals are coaching or choreographing, etc.
Also, sometimes the "stars" are leftover minor celebrities from days gone by--a good opportunity for my wife and me to catch up on some old names (that we probably barely even noticed the first time around). This season: Kristi Yamaguchui, Priscilla Presley, Steve Gutenberg, Penn Jillette, Monica Seles, and maybe Shannon Elizabeth from "American Pie" fame. Silly stuff, but sometimes it's fun to check out a celeb from our younger days like Elvis Presley's wife and see what she's up to today.
Speaking of which, Heather Mills, a DWTS alumna, got a $50 million settlement on her divorce from Paul McCartney today... Oh well.
I'm not expecting much response to this thread. But I thought I would put it out there in case anyone else wants to go on record as a viewer of this show. No one can be cool 100 percent of the time.
