Yet more evidence that the suits who run Tv networks are total boneheads: Producers of Seven’s Dancing with the Stars reportedly approached Nine’s TV chef Gordon Ramsay about appearing on the next season of the tediously creaky dance-off.
Firstly, this reeks of a last-ditch attempt by the Seven Network to exploit Nine’s unexpected ratings success with Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares. Secondly… as if Gordon Ramsay, who rakes in squillions every time he stars in one of his own shoes, is going to appear on the pokey Aussie version of Dancing with the Stars!
Seven is clearly a little desperate to rescuscitate Dancing: in addiction to sucking up to Ramsay, they’re reportedly “making moves” to include the So You Think You Can Dance finalists in the next season. Ugh – the whole thing is reminiscent of a high-school loser trying to convince the cool kids to come to her birthday party.
