Ox Notes: April 10, 2008

Wrapping up Dancing with the Stars news for the week, here are links to People’s backstage reports from this week’s Performance Show and Results Show. The Results Show won its timeslot in terms of overall viewers (16.5 million), but finished behind Hell’s Kitchen and The Biggest Loser in the 18-49 demographic.

If you thought you spotted Bachelor Andy Baldwin sitting with Donald Trump’s ex, Marla Maples, in the audience of Monday night’s episode of DwtS, your eyes weren’t playing tricks on you. The two are a couple.

And if you’re still reeling about some of this week’s outfits, check out this blogger’s pet peeves about the costumes on Dancing with the Stars. Amazingly, Marissa Jaret Winokur’s awful Paso Doble dress wasn’t mentioned.

Ahead of tonight’s new episode of Survivor, TV Guide has an interview with Ami, who said she didn’t start playing the game until three hours before her ouster. Oops.

Survivor producer Mark Burnett signed a deal with AEG Live, the production team behind the Dancing with the Stars Tours. Why am I getting horrifying visions of a "Survivor on Ice" arena tour?

Speaking of ice, the Discovery Channel and BBC will co-produce a high definition documentary series akin to Planet Earth called Frozen Planet, set to premiere in 2012.

The website BuzzSugar has a slideshow titled The Best Game Shows of My Childhood, a list that’s probably most relevant to those in the 25-35 age range. In my youth, I watched almost all of the shows on the list, with Fun House being my favorite of the bunch.
