Dancing Fools!

"Dancing Fools" review by Sundi
Airs Wednesdays 9pm on ABC Family

*SIGH!* Another video clip show. ABC Family has bought into the laughing-at-you-not-with-you phenomenon with its thirty-minute, live audience show, Dancing Fools, hosted by Melissa Peterson. This show is formatted similarly to Americaís Funniest Videos in that the favorite video of the week wins $10,000, but it lacks the charm and wittiness the original has. It is also somewhat derivative of shows such as Comedy Centralís Tosh.0 or MTVís Ridiculousness, but far more G-rated. The viral videos are limited to dancing clips (and I hate to say this), but nobody gets hurt or injured or surprised. All the things that make those other shows funny, and fun to watch, are absent here -- including a charming host whom the audience connects with and doesnít want to strangle.

As insufferable as the the show and host and VJ are, it doesnít come close to the remorse I feel watching contestants reenact their dances live for the audience. I wish I could have that thirty minutes back. Don't bother with this one...
