Live TV Is Awkward.

Pictured here is the moment during last night’s “Dancing with the Stars” when Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s leg buckled under the weight of Kirstie Alley, causing both of them to fall to the floor (see video below). When Maks stood back up, he grimaced in pain and needed a couple more seconds to recover before gritting his teeth through the rest of the dance. Make no mistake: this was an absolute disaster. Anyone in any other dance competition in the world would automatically lose for a screw-up like this, but instead people are air-brushing this because… I don’t know. Because Kirstie Alley is fat? That’s my best guess.

It may not have looked like a massive tumble [Ed. Note: It looked like a massive tumble] , but Maksim Chmerkovskiy clearly injured something rather painfully toward the beginning of his Rumba with Kirstie Alley on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ this week. According to Chmerkovskiy, his “thigh just gave out.” […]

The judges were very supportive of what happened, and more significantly, their recovery. “Despite the fact you had a little mess up at the beginning, something magical happened after that,” Carrie Ann Inaba said of their performance. [TV Squad]

Each of the three judges gave Maks and Alley 7 out of ten, which really only proves that three out of three “DWTS” judges are yellow-bellied, lily-livered cowards of the most craven order.

And before you go feeling sorry for Maks, he spent all of last season nailing his partner Erin Andrews at the absolute peak of her hotness. If the “DWTS” producers want to restore balance to the cosmos, they’ll partner him with nothing but 60-year-old, 220-pound Scientologists for the rest of his career.
