Ox Notes: October 27, 2008

Lance Bass wrote at his MySpace page that he and Lacey Schwimmer will dance a Jive on tonight’s Dancing with the Stars 7 Performance Show. Oddsmakers put Lance & Lacey’s odds to win this season’s mirrorball trophy at 5/1.

In other DwtS news, Maurice Greene & Cheryl Burke interviewed each other for Entertainment Tonight. In an article about Cloris Leachman, Corky Ballas told USA Today: "There are days we haven’t danced because of her blood pressure."

Next season’s Dancing with the Stars cast could include Rev. Al Sharpton, reports TV Guide.

Auditions for So You Think You Can Dance 5 start next month.

Reality Blurred has an interview with booted Survivor: Gabon contestant Kelly Czarnecki.

The same website also has the scoop on Fashion House, the new show that Bravo hopes will fill the void left when Project Runway moved to Lifetime.

The Chicago Tribune’s Maureen Ryan posted a wonderful analysis of last night’s Mad Men season finale, which I thought was terrific. The episode was so dense that it made Ryan (and me) wonder why the creators saved so much for the last episode of the season, especially given how little happened in the two preceding episodes.
