Since the writers are on strike, I thought I would have a go at it:
I was thinking this would be more interesting if the partners were monkeys. Or maybe the partners were still humans, but there were live monkeys on the stage that resulted in a fun and hilarious malay of monkeys, high heels, tassels and fur.
Or may be we do away with the monkeys (stage crew may strike if they have to clean up Monkey poopies) and instead we strategically place Ninjas on the stage and brainwash the Ninjas to believe the dancing stars are a threat. "Slice, Dice, and Cha Cha and Shimmies in to fun!"
Ok Ok, so Ninjas may not be the best route, but I am sure there is some way we can make this show worthwhile to watch...
