Ox Notes: November 25, 2009

Dancing with the Stars 9 is over. Congratulations to Donny Osmond & Kym Johnson, whose victory seemed almost inevitable. Was any winner ever more predictable before the start of the season? Kristi Yamaguchi in Season 6, perhaps?

Access Hollywood, The Insider and ET had cameras backstage after last night’s Finale. Kelly Osbourne told Us that she never expected to win.

E! has clips of the contestants partying after the show. Many of the participants are still Twittering about the show today.

The DwtS 9 Finale won last night’s ratings war with an audience of 19.2 million people. Donny Osmond’s victory, however, was seen by several million people fewer than watched Marie Osmond finish in third place in Season 5.

In other DwtS news, the 1500 complaints ABC received about Adam Lambert’s performance at the American Music Awards on Sunday night is less than the number of complaints the network receives about a typical DwtS episode.

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba told People that she has back surgery in her future.

My Ox Is Broken will return on Tuesday, December 8 with a new edition of Ox Notes. Happy Thanksgiving!
