It’s Tuesday and we’ll get to “Dancing With The Stars” in a moment, but before we do, a few news bits. First, don’t forget that in addition to “DWTS” we also have the season premiere of “GLEE ” bowing tonight on Fox; you might want to tune in and see what all the fuss is about (if you already know, perhaps you’ll join your fellow Gleeks because tonight probably has “National Holiday” written all over it). Now today we also have our first ever CORRECTION. That’s right. It seems that after everyone stayed up all night doing the bean counting with the movie box office results, Date Night did not technically topple Clash of the Titans, as we’d believed. But it sure came close. Still, we know that close only counts in reality TV and plastic surgery so consider this your official apology: the final weekend tally was: Clash pulled in $26.6 million, and Date Night brought in $25.2 million. So how about Conan O’Brien, the late night funnyman who weathered that awful storm a few months back with Jay Leno (emerging with his dignity intact, which is not something you can say about everyone involved)? Conan’s got a brand new show, and it’s not (as was originally believed) going to be on Fox. Nope. This class act has decided try something completely, unexpectedly, headscratchingly but when you think about it, deliciously different: Conan’s going to TBS. His new show will bow at 11pm. Where, we’re pretty sure, he may give Jon Stewart a real run for his money. Plus, it looks like Conan will be given tons of creative freedom and he can be even edgier – because it’s cable. And now for a bit of surprise casting news…remember Footloose? Remember how it made Kevin Bacon a huge star? Well, you’ll probably also recall that Zac Efron was slated to star in the remake, but then he dropped out because he didn’t want to be pigeonholed as a singing-and-dancing sensation forever (like that’s so bad). So then they got “Gossip Girl” star Chace Crawford to replace Zac, and all was fine. Until we learned that now Chace is bailing too. Now what to do?? Well, word on the street is they will replace Zac/Chace with an unknown …imagine that! (We may poll you about replacements next week because I have some suggestions, but right now let’s get to our regularly scheduled Tuesday “DWTS” poll). So someone else has got to go on tonight’s elimination show. We already said buh-bye to Shannen and Buzz. Now, voice your choice in today’s featured poll and tell us which of these 4 “Dancing With The Stars” stars will get sent packing this evening?
1) Kate G.
2) Niecy N.
3) Aiden T.
4) Jake P.
