    Thanks for this info! I am only interested in these two partnerships. I will definitely not be watching this season live. DVR all the way! I'm super excited that Derek is back!

    I am typically stoked about seeing Mark dance, but he seriously got on my nerves last season (and this season when he choreographed a routine on So You Think You Can Dance). I hope he takes a step back and down from the Mark Ballas show and starts choreographing to his partner's strengths (although his partner last season didn't really seem to have many weaknesses) and not making it all about HIS amazing, edgy, never-before-seen choreography skills. Sorry . . . didn't mean to make this a vent haha.

    Makes me very glad I dont have a TV.

    Last season any glitch in the broadcast of DWTS would lead to a flood of calls to the DTV Help Desk.
    I have a HUGE SIG!!!!

    There's been a lot of negative talk about Chaz Bono being in this year's line-up. Does anybody think that it will affect the show itself, and people just won't tune in like they used to because of him? - or that they will watch it only because he is on?? - the freak show mentality of some folks?? I've heard some of the stupidest and most bigoted comments that's it's ridiculous. I may not personally agree with the way he has chosen to live his life, but to hear people say they don't want their kids watching the show because he is on it, is just plain stupid. It took a lot of guts for Chaz to go on the show, and also to do the documentary that he did when he went public with his transformation. Do you think that maybe the producers of the show did it for the shock value, thinking that it would up the ratings, since the show really is running out of interesting personalities to compete?? - IMO of course.

    Yes they probably did it for the ratings but I don't get the parents arguments, the kids won't even know he is transgender most likely and its not like they will get through life not seeing anything different than what their parents believe, sounds like the parents are only teaching hate.

    I heard clips on the news from parents saying they would now have to explain to their children the whole concept of "transgender" because Chaz Bono is on Dancing With The Stars. But I don't see why. Chaz is a couple of years younger than me, so today's children may not even make a connection that Lacey Schwimmer's partner and the little girl who used to appear with her parents on the Sonny and Cher show in the '70s are the same person. I hope people will watch it because of Chaz. Good on ya Chaz and Lacey.

    I heard that on the radio too that people were upset he was going to be on but I didn't understand why. I don't really agree with his lifestyle either but that is what he chose for himself. As far as parents having to tell their kids what he has done to himself, I don't understand why they would have to tell him anything. I think people just like to complain sometimes.

    I don't personally find Chaz Bono appealing, but not for any other reason than he just doesn't interest me. I don't care about his transformation from a woman to a man at all. His personality just doesn't do it for me.

    I would be willing to be that the same parents griping about him being on the show let their kids play video games that are inappropriate or wear inappropriate clothes or watch too much tv in the first place. If you don't want to answer questions about his sexuality, don't let them watch the show. It's really as simple as that.

    Just finished watching Chaz and Lacey ... not bad! The thing I can't get over is if I'm listening but not looking at the TV, Chaz sounds sooooo much like Sonny!

    I haven't seen everyone, but so far I am really loving Chynna Phillips & Tony Dovalani. I hope she sticks around!

    I have always liked her, and love her mother - Michelle Phillips of "The Mamas & Papas" who was also in "Knots Landing" for a long time.

    I haven't ever really liked David Arquette before, but I thought he was so cute tonight. I liked him, too!

    We liked Chynna - and J.R. Martinez - the injured veteran who has been on All My Children the past few years.

    There weren't any that I hated, but I do hope the NBA star goes home tomorrow. He was my least favorite immediately. Not sure why, he just really rubbed me the wrong way. I have never liked Nancy Grace or Chaz Bono, but they both seemed like they were really enjoying themselves, and I found that I enjoyed them. I have to say that Carson was my favorite to watch. I'm a big David Arquette fan, he's a complete goofball, but I really think he's got a debonair, romantic air about him . . . sorta old school Hollywood. I seriously am so annoyed with Mark Ballas, he has been bugging me for a few seasons now. It's like it's the Mark show every time he's on stage. Derek Hough is the best choreographer on the show, in my opinion. He is so good with his students. His choreography is always good, edgy but not insulting, always playing to the star's strength. And, every person he's danced with seems genuinely comfortable with him from the first dance. And he rarely, if ever, loses his cool or when being judged or says anything ridiculous. I LOVE him. Overall, the show was better than I expected.

    David, Chyna, and Carson were my favorites. Carson and David both looked like they were having a ball!!! Chyna was the all around best dancer. I liked Chaz and hope he does well. I didn't expect him to be that good. Forget the little kids, my grown son asked me if I had ever considered a sex change!
