Prime Time?

Did anyone here about a new TV show about ballroom dancing that will air during prime time beginning in June?

My mom told me she saw a commercial for it...

I am curious

"Dancing with the Stars" will start airing on ABC-TV on Wednesday, June 1, at 9pm. In it, six "celebrities" are paired with six pro ballroom dancers. They will compete together and then one couple will be eliminated based on a combination of the judges' scores and audience call-in votes.

The pairings are:

Jonathan Roberts & Rachael Hunter
Charlotte Jorgenson & that guy who played Elaine's boss on "Seinfeld"
Editya Sylwinska (sorry for killing the spelling) & Evander Holyfeld
Ashley Delgrosso & an ex-New Kid on the Block
Louis van Amstel & Trista from "The Batchelor" (or was it "Batchelorette")
Alec Mazo & someone who I can't remember

They're taping it in LA, but I don't know where; the shows will be broadcast live to the East Coast and on tape delay in the Pacific time zone. Not sure about Mountain.

ok this show sounds really stupid. Instead of "celebrities" (and i use that tearm loosely) they should have had normal reality show ontestionats and like gotten a big name host. either way it sadly wont last long, nobody has to eat anything gross, (if they do i dont want to know how it fits into ballroom) i supose it gets ballroom out to the masses though, which is always a good thing. i plan to watch, i hope its actually entertaining.

Supposedly there's another show in the works called "Ballroom Boot Camp" which will take normal people (not "celebrities") and teach them to dance and prepare them for a competition. I don't have any details on this one, though.

Pertinent to the 9PM given time, I assume that is 9PM Easter Daylight Time and 8PM Central Daylight time, (etc.)
