Let's Dance!


Because you can never get enough of celebrities dancing, ABC has picked up Let's Dance, which they're calling a comedic reality show. It's based on a format that found success as part of the UK's Comic Relief programming. Rather than having celebrities commit to a full season to learn a variety of ballroom styles, a la Dancing with the Stars, this new show only requires a one-week commitment with the possibility of a "finale" return. And all they have to master is an already well-known dance.I guess this is where the "comedy" comes in?

The celebs will be asked to re-enact famous dance routines such as in Dirty Dancing, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, or even music video classics like Michael Jackson's "Thriller." Which is... funny, I guess? I love the picture that went with the story. No explanation but big red noses. So funny Maybe they dance with those? At any rate, funny or not the idea is to slot a short run, as in five episodes of Let's Dance between seasons of Dancing with the Stars. So what do you think? Is it too much dance, or are you on board?
