Midseason T.V. Premieres – Jan 10, 2012

It’s all about competition tonight on television!

The crazy women of ‘Dance Moms’ return at 8 PM on Lifetime tonight. If there was ever an argument for keeping little girls out of competitive dance classes, this show is it. It still amazes us that there are women out there who will spend every penny they make on sequinned costumes and cross-country trips just so their kid can win a competition.

A&E is premiering their newest competition show tonight at 9 PM. ‘Shipping Wars’ is the third “wars” show the channel has produced and looks to follow the formula pretty close. The truckers on ‘Shipping Wars’ bid for the chance to haul unusual cargo across America, taking anything from million dollar luxury cars to camels.

Not to be outdone, Bravo is premiering ‘Tabitha Takes Over’ tonight at 10 PM. Tabitha and her always perfect hair are branching out from just salons and helping all kinds of small business owners. She’ll even be taking on a doggie hotel this season. She’s like the prettier, nicer, female version of Gordon Ramsey.

However, what we’ll be tuning into tonight is ‘The L.A. Complex’ tonight at 9 PM on Muchmusic or CTV here in Canada. It’s our beloved Jewel Staite’s new show about actors trying to make it in L.A. Sorry to our American friends, you’ll have to wait until the spring to see it when The CW picks it up.

  1. I like how they flew in one of the monsters from Where the Wild Things are to teach young girls how to dance.

  2. I used to work at a theatre that held dance competitions. I have to be careful not to make this into a huge, out-of-control rant. Here I go: these competitions sexualize young girls and make bitches out of their moms! I have seen it first-hand! These girls ran around the theatre wrecking stuff and there was glitter, glitter everywhere…on every surface OH MY GOD and even though we had tons of extra staff, it was only a CONTROLLED chaos. The actual performances were more often than not terrible and the songs featured lyrics and choreography WAAAYY too mature for these 8 and 9 year olds!!! Cause that is how old the majority of them are!!! And the costumes??? Riduculously low-cut and in terrible taste…or jsut plain ugly. And the parents…wow…I ended up having a screaming match with one of the moms!!! Oh no!! This has turned into an out-of-control rant. Ahem…that is all.

  3. And look at the costumes that are in that photo that you posted!! Should pre-pubescent girls be wearing bikini tops??? NO!!!

  4. Abbey Lee Miller from Dance Moms should probably never have been let around children. Just sayin’.
