Ox Notes: March 18, 2009

Backstage after last night’s Dancing with the Stars 8 Results Show, ousted couple Belinda Carlisle & Jonathan Roberts and the rest of the cast recorded video interviews with ET and The Insider and spoke to E! and OK!.

New this season, DwtS judge Carrie Ann Inaba is blogging after every Results Show for EW.com. She clarified the rules for the dance-off and offered her thoughts on the performances thus far.

People wants to know what you thought of the dance-off.

I was excited to discover that the Yahoo! Buzz Session featuring Diane Mizota and Joey Lawrence is back after taking Season 7 off. Check out what the snarky duo thought of Monday night’s performances.

Nancy O’Dell offered her thoughts on Monday’s dances to TV Guide, and People posted a backstage report on What You Didn’t See.

Looking ahead to next week on Dancing with the Stars, Gilles Marini told E! he’s anxious to start rehearsing his Samba. And Holly Madison enthused to Us, "I’m obsessed with these freakin’ costumes! I don’t care about the Mirror Ball. I don’t give an eff about winning. I just want to wear as many costumes as I can!"

President Obama’s televised speech next Tuesday night won’t interrupt the Dancing with the Stars Results Show.

DwtS pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff chatted with ET about their sexy TV Guide photo shoot.

In TV news that’s not about Dancing with the Stars (there is such a thing?), FOX cancelled Hole in the Wall for good, with four hours of the lame game show left unaired.

One of my favorite Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes, Zombie Nightmare starring Adam West, is coming to DVD on July 7. I’ve always loved this line about the lumbering title zombie: "John Goodman on Hume Cronyn’s back could outrun this guy." (If you’re too young to get the references, go here for an explanation).

To bring things full circle, here’s a clip of Belinda Carlisle’s exit interview last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Is it just me, or does Belinda sound a little dismissive when she says her picks to win DwtS 8 are Gilles or "the girl from The Bachelor"?
