Ox Notes: September 29, 2008

Dancing with the Stars 7 contestants were hard at work over the weekend, and Entertainment Tonight has video to prove it. The show filmed Cody Linley & Julianne Hough and Susan Lucci & Tony Dovolani rehearsing their Week 2 routines, and cameras caught up with Rocco DiSpirito & Karina Smirnoff in the gym.

Updated DwtS 7 betting odds have Brooke Burke as the favorite to win, with Toni Braxton, Maurice Greene, Cody Linley, Susan Lucci, and Misty May-Treanor tied for second.

In case you missed Tina Fey’s dead-on impersonation of Gov. Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live this weekend, The Chicago Tribune’s TV blog, The Watcher, has video from the show.

Yahoo! caught up with contestants from past season’s of The Biggest Loser to see if they’ve been able to keep the weight off.

A court has temporarily blocked Lifetime from airing or promoting Project Runway 6, which recently started filming.

Project Runway mentor Tim Gunn shared some style secrets with OK! Magazine.

This probably won’t surprise you, but most of the science in Fringe isn’t very realistic.

My brother will appreciate Time’s interview with Seth MacFarlane, because the Family Guy creator makes a reference to Joe Versus the Volcano.

CBS’s usually diligent censors failed to blur "Little Marcus" when he made an appearance during the Survivor: Gabon premiere.

There are tons of videos from the current season available at Survivor‘s website.

I enjoyed the premiere of The Amazing Race 13 last night, even though it was obvious which couple would be the first eliminated. EW’s Josh Wolk wrote a funny recap of the episode, making frequent references to the Brazilian candy, Blong, that featured in one of the challenges.

Information about Blong is hard to find online. Perhaps one of MOIB’s Brazilian readers (paging Marina and Leo!) could clue the rest of us in to what exactly Blong is.
