The new season of "Dancing with the Stars" kicked off this week, and I'm beginning to wonder if they should rename this show. If the only "stars" you can immediately recognize are Wayne Newton and a retired Spice Girl, they are just misleading people.

Anyway, Mark Cuban debuted last night, and for those who didn't know who Mark Cuban was, Kim over at televisionwithoutpity.com summed it up better than I ever could:

"He explains that he started a site called broadcast.com, which sold for billions of dollars, and now he owns the Dallas Mavericks. He also clearly thinks a lot of himself, and I kind of hate him."


Cuban, catatonic grin and all, upheld the tradition of proud dancing NBA personalities and pulled off a surprisingly not-horrible performance. And all of this on a surgically repaired hip! But, if you're familiar with the rules of pickup basketball, you can't just mention an injury...you have to sell it.

Cuban is an odd fellow. He has a lot of great ideas, and if you read his blog he comes off as thoughtful and very bright. But on camera he has a nails on the chalkboard quality and makes the Mavs impossible to root for. He should work on his on screen persona as hard as he did those dance moves, then maybe they'd let him buy the cubs.

I'm not sure who I hate more. Mark Cuban or Donald Trump.

Never mind, definately Mark. What a jackass.

By the way, his partner is a POA. I'de like to snuggle up in between Kym's giant basketballs.

God I hate him.
