Ox Notes: April 24, 2008

17.5 million viewers tuned in to see Derek Hough point out his competitors’ flaws on the latest Dancing with the Stars Results Show. Cristian de la Fuente told People that Derek "should probably learn to stay quiet."

Cristian’s partner, Cheryl Burke, confirmed for Extra that she’s been out on a date with actor Gerard Butler.

Local news outlets featured interviews with the lead couple in Tuesday night’s Riverdance performance, and with Brittany, the young dancer who won the Ballroom Kids competition with her partner, Brandon.

Tennis fans can stop entertaining hopes that legends Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova will appear on a future season of Dancing with the Stars. Evert asked The Post and Courier, "Why would I want to do that?" while Navratilova said simply, "Hell, no."

Ozzy Lusth gave a terse interview to TV Guide about getting blindsided on Survivor: Micronesia.

The writers of CSI have a surprise in store for viewers. They wrote the May 5 episode of the sitcom Two and a Half Men, and the sitcom writers penned the May 8 episode of CSI.

I think I’d like to see more of this staff-swapping. An America’s Funniest Home Videos/Lost crossover, perhaps?
