Flatley gets his own ‘Dancing’ show

SHARE Flatley gets his own ‘Dancing’ show

Seems like the good fortune just keeps coming for folks who participate in “Dancing with the Stars.” The show absolutely revived the careers of John O’Hurley and Mario Lopez. And now comes word that Michael Flatley, who subbed for lead judge Len Goodman a few weeks back, is getting his own reality dance show.

EW.Com’s Annie Barrett is reporting:

“Michael Flatley, whom I have somewhat affectionately labeled “DANCLRD” for that one week he filled in for DANCMSTR Len Goodman on this season’s Dancing With the Stars, will host his own dance series on NBC. Hmmm…how can we title this sucker so that it’s basically a synonym for ‘DWTS’ but also kind of one-ups it a bit…Macy’s Stars of Dance: The Series? People Who Really Are Stars DANCE? Dance Superstars? Nope. Flatley’s show will be called “Superstar Dancers of the World.” The WORLD! Oh, they went there. “American Idol” evil genius Simon Fuller and “So You Think You Can Dance?” judge/troll Nigel Lythgoe are to blame for this mess.”

And of course, like Annie, we’ll also be tuning in for this uhm, mess.

“In total, we had eight walks,” said manager Pedro Grifol. “It’s hard to win baseball games like that.”
Not to tell new Sox general manager Chris Getz how to do his job, but he probably should go out and find at least one superstar talent who actually can stay on the field. You know, just a thought.
Two men, 22 and 28, were sitting in a vehicle in the 800 block of West 58th Street about 7:16 p.m. Sunday when they were hit by gunfire, police said. One was struck in the wrist, the other in the chest.
The Hawks averaged 18,836 fans per game in 2023-24, marking an increase of about 1,700 over last season. Plus, notes on Petr Mrazek, the World Championships and Kevin Korchinski.
The Hawks’ newly signed top prospect buried a first-period goal, but the Hawks let a third-period lead slip away in a 4-2 defeat Sunday that concluded their home schedule.
