Last night on the second week of competition for season 17 of  ABC”s Dancing with the Stars, it was One Life to Live and High School Musical  Star, Corbin Bleu and his dance partner Karina Smirnoff,  who wowed the judges most scoring a 26 out of 30 for their Jive which Bleu performed as an homage to his High School Musical days.

With leaps, athleticism, and dance movements, they were the couple to beat. The only awkward moment came when Bleu, before the judges gave their scores, said to DWTS host Tom Bergeron,  “I have to do something for myself for a moment.”   He then shouted to the audience,”What team? What team? Wildcats!”  Obviously, another nod to High School Musical.  However, if you never saw the movie, you would have no idea what came over him!

Now on to Pretty Little Liars and Days of our Lives guest star, Brant Daugherty and his dance partner Peta Murgatroyd, The sexy couple danced the Rumba!  While their chemistry is palpable, the judges seemed to criticize some of the movement, and may have felt it was more smoke in mirrors, without really saying it.  To us, it looked pretty damn good!  Brant and Peta scored a 23.

As we reported last week, our pick to be booted off this week in the first elimination was ESPN commentator Keyshawn Johnson, and the dancing Gods were with us, because at the end of the night …he was the first to be given the boot!  Leaving Bill Nye and Bill Engvall, the next gents that should go, although with Bill Nye receiving so much fan support, he could get through for weeks on end!

In the “hankie” moment of the evening, that was provided by Valerie Harper’s dance partner, Tristan MacManus, who while in rehearsal was overcome to tears watching Valerie give it her all and try to learn the steps in their Paso Doble!  Harper had injured her knee last week and is battling terminal cancer.

Other’s who impressed:  Jack Osbourne, who was so hard on himself and self-depreciating in rehearsals, did a more than admirable job with the the Rumba with partner Cheryl Burke.  While Leah Ramini, who performed a Samba with Tony Dovolani,  finally publicly said something about her struggle with leaving the Church of Scientology citing it as both a motivation and a distraction for signing on to Dancing With the Stars during her rehearsal segment.  Jack and Cheryl and Leah and Tony both scored a 24 from the judges.

Bill Nye will go on for a bit longer– he’s so darn lovable it would be like voting off your grandpa. He dances badly but when you watch him you know it his heart he is dancing like Fred Astaire — so I hope he stays for a bit longer just to watch his joy.

Both Corbin and Brant are doing well, dancing with former mirror ball winners, so they have a good shot at the title.

Valerie is an inspiration— and that moment with Tristan was so sweet– just proves true beauty lies in our souls not in our looks.

Not sure who will go home next, but enjoying this new season, the dancing and the faster format of everything happening in one night. Looking forward to julianne hough being a guest judge in a couple of weeks– that should be interesting to see.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
