Sean Spicer’s “Dancing With The Stars” Debut: Judges Say Salsa Didn’t Quite Sizzle
Sean Spicer flashed across the screen in a neon green puffy shirt for his debut on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars — at least he chose a blinding lime over Trump orange.

He danced a salsa with professional Lindsay Arnold to the Spice Girls “Spice Up Your Life,” and while he earned some respect for the judges for being game to doing the show, they scored near the bottom of all of the contestants, scoring 12 out of 30.

“I started off at minus ten,” Spicer said afterward, standing next to Arnold. “She has been a phenomenal coach.”

His segment started with him playing the bongos before he went in to the dance moves with Arnold, but it failed to impress the judges. They did give him credit for trying.

“I have to say it was strangely entertaining,” said judge Bruno Tonioli, who otherwise said that “there were some elements of salsa there.

ABC’s Karey Burke On ‘The Kids Are Alright’ Cancellation: “Fanbase Was Not Strong Enough” – TCA

  • Deadline
The ABC comedy The Kids Are Alright was canceled in May after one season and fans — including TCA members — still want answers. ABC Boss Karey Burke addressed the cancellation of the series created by Tim Doyle and starring Michael Cudlitz and Mary McCormack.

Burke said that they looked at the show’s ratings from every angle but “did not see enough upside.” They also examined its multi-platform and social media performances and it just didn’t look good for the series.

“There did not seem to be a strong enough fanbase at the time,” Burke, who is a fan of the show, added. “This was a tough business decision.”

She later said that there wasn’t a science to making the decision to cancel. “We look at what has the brightest creative future,” she remarked. “When we did the analysis, things weren’t quite equal.”

The Kids Are Alright: Here's Why ABC Should Reverse Its Cancellation Pronto

Now that ABC has “fully and finally cancelled” Whiskey Cavalier — and before the window of opportunity closes for the network to rethink another of its more dubious decisions — may I suggest that it make haste and un-axe The Kids Are Alright?

“It was very cathartic,” reveals Ken Jeong about performing his Netflix stand-up special “You Complete Me, Ho.” Watch our exclusive video interview above where he adds, “my favorite segment was the last 10 minutes, talking about my wife (Tran Ho) and her fight against breast cancer. She’s now cancer free. Telling that story, weaving it in with ‘The Hangover’ and how that impacted my life is probably my favorite thing I’ve ever done.”
