I was completely with the reality TV boom for a while. I really liked a lot of the reality TV, and the one that lost me was the ballroom dancing one they do, ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ That was the one where I watched it and I was perplexed. I thought it was really boring.

You’ll never see me at the launch of the new PlayStation or some club. For me, the fun stuff is being able to get my mom tickets to ‘Dancing With the Stars’ – she loves Mario Lopez.
It’s so unfair on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ because when the men celebrities are competing, all you look at is the females! So nobody really watches them. Then when you see the women stars competing, you’re expecting them to look like the females and they just can’t! It’s an unfair advantage.
Senator [George] Mitchell is a man of many talents and he’s swift on his feet, but one would not think of him as ‘dancing with the stars.’ And we had this great rock ‘n’ roll fund raiser.
Buzz was, of course, the second man to walk on the moon. Buzz made a rap video, ‘Rocket Experience,’ with Snoop Dogg. He did the cha-cha and the fox-trot and was eliminated in the second round of season ten of ‘Dancing with the Stars’.

‘Dancing with the Stars’ is a great format for us. It’s a format we license from the BBC, so that can’t travel for us, but we consider it a great success. ‘Desperate Housewives,’ on the other hand, a huge success for us internationally. ‘Missing’ has actually sold to 80 territories before it’s even gone on the air.
I will do ‘Dancing with the Stars’ when my career dips.
