Mo's Manic Monday - Formula

Posted: Monday, September 22, 2008 by Travis Cody in

Welcome to another Manic Monday with Morgan. Don't forget to cruise by MM HQ at It's A Blog Eat Blog World. Today's theme is Formula.

Here is my formula for an excellent evening of entertainment...

Take one of the best hosts on television...

Add Ms No Lifts, Mr Cranky Pants, and Mr Over-the-Top...

Combine with a cast of celebrities and professional ballroom dancers...

And cue that theme music!

Tune in tonight for the season premier of Dancing with the Stars, 8pm on ABC!


  1. Did I spot the UK's very own Len and Bruno there?
    It's rumoured that Len thinks Bruno an idiot. That's why they always put them together - to annoy Len.
    Great post!

  1. Sanni says:

    Perfect. I'll bring the snacks. :-)
    And I promise not to get my hands on the remote control. All yours! *g*

  1. Janna says:

    See, that's the difference between you and me.
    My ideal evening involves pizza, blogging, farting, and sleeping.

    And yet, somehow, I'm still single...

  1. Marsha says:

    Plus we even have 3 nights of it this week....finally, SOMETHING to watch.

  1. I think I haven't watched tv in a week. Is that Tom Bergeron (sp)? Never realised that he looks like Anthony Bourdain!

  1. Matt-Man says:

    Will Kim Kardashian be naked? Cheers!!

  1. oh trav, great post!

    smiles, bee

  1. lisa ryan says:

    and a new season begins. You must be happy today :-)

  1. Jamie says:

    Definitely a case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

  1. Anndi says:

    *does a little desk dance and a swivel chair spin* If Heather Mills can dance with an artificial leg, maybe Chicklet will mambo on crutches!

  1. I will be home in front of the tv!

  1. Ivanhoe says:

    I think you found the perfect formula. I will of course miss it due to my school, but you know where I'll be reading all about it tomorrow, dont'ya? :o)

  1. Bond says:

    Yup...all set for this...should be a wonderful evening...only having someone there to watch with would be better,...

  1. Akelamalu says:

    That's a winning formula if ever there was one!

  1. I can't tune in tonight Travis. We don't have television. You enjoy though. Have a great MM. Big hug. :)

  1. Mags says:

    Somehow I KNEW it would have to do with dancing! :)

    Happy first day of autumn Trav!

  1. Steven says:

    I'm right there with you!! It starts in only two hours here!!! Why don't you come on over so you can see it earlier?

  1. Kimmie says:

    Squeeee!!! Its finally here! I am so excited for tonights premier. :-) Then I will stop back to see what you and Pam thought of all the dancers. I just love your recaps Trav!

    @Vinnybond...I watch all alone don't feel like you are the only one.

  1. Travis says:

    Anthony: You did indeed. I've heard that there is some friction there, but that they both overplay it as part of the act.

    Sanni: Ooooh...we could use some cupCAKES!

    Janna: All you're missing is some nice music and candlelight.

    Marsha: I know!

    Terra: It is Tom Bergeron. There is a passing resemblance, now that you point it out.

    Matt: Perhaps. But she won't be dancing with Cheryl.

    Bee: Thank you my dear!

    Lisa: I am ecstatic today!

    Jamie: Indeed.

  1. Travis says:

    Ann: I think she's ok with the Latin dances, except for maybe Jive.

    Starr: Just a few more hours to wait. It's a good thing I have football to pass the time.

    Ivanhoe: TIVO?

    V: It's a shame you and Nancy can't get together to watch.

    Akelamalu: Yup!

    Sandee: Oh that's right. I'll enjoy it a little extra for you.

    Mags: I'm too predictable!

    Steven: That's a perfectly good reason to move to the east coast.

    Kimmie: I'm looking forward to the feedback to see who everyone's favorites are.

  1. jennifer says:

    How did you get so smart?

    HA! I answered you back and of course I am going to have to edit that post... next week :)

    Thank you for the giggle. I am proof that you can function on half of a brain!

  1. Roger says:

    You must be in heaven lol.

  1. WoooHOOOO, another season of Dancing. I'm not able to watch it most weeks as this is my Toastmasters night, but it's always nice to know I can come here and get a run down of what's happening there.

    Thanks for visiting me this evening, Trav.

  1. LOL! Thanks for stopping by my MM! You were my sole commentor, so thank you. I always hate to see a big 0 in my comments... you saved the day! :D I have never watched Dancing with the Stars... but you are making me wish I had TV so I could! Maybe I'll watch bits on YouTube! :)

    Thanks again!

  1. Oh and BTW... that host, I don't know his name, is AWESOME! I totally agree that he is the best host on TV... I know I said I don't have TV, but occasionally I catch America's Funniest Videos at my mom's house and he's the host. He's hilarious. Even when his lines are lamish, he delivers and pulls it off! Love him. He kicks Bob Saggett's butt all over the place! ;)
