ABC just announced its lineup for Season 10 of “Dancing With The Stars” and as always, it has that mind-bending bend of has-beens, jocks and somewhat-notables from other walks of life. Highlighting the sports-centric portion of the card are ESPN sideline princess/hotel room stalkee Erin Andrews and Bengals wide receiver Chad Ocho Cinco. Other notables include Buzz Aldrin, Kate Gosselin, and that chick from “Reno 911.”
The announcement shouldn’t really surprise anyone. Andrews, who was on her school’s dance team during her undergraduate days at the University of Florida, has been openly lobbying for a spot on the hit show for some time. And Chad Ocho Cinco will do or say pretty much anything to get on TV, so people will get a break from logging into UStream and Twitter. That’s nice.
The show is scheduled to return to ABC later this month. That’s really just a guess, because I don’t really care. Watching people dance is just slightly less inspiring than watching people eat. And about as entertaining.
