'The Host's Leaderboard': Tom Bergeron on Classical Night, bickering judges, and a ballroom sleepover

Here they are: Tom Bergeron‘s scores for Classical Week on Dancing With the Stars. In our Week 4 chat, Tom and I discuss the risk and eventual payoff of transforming the ballroom into a symphony hall, the way the judges’ bickering has “devolved into preschool,” and the chances of an eventual DWTS pajama party (DWTSPJP).

Even though he rates the DWTSPJP’s likelihood “a snowball’s chance in hell,” Tom is clearly into the idea and particularly wants Zoolander-esque slo-mo scenes involving spray tan. Don’t we all? And if the DWTSPJP ultimately turns into an all-night telethon? “We can all just call it a career after that,” he says.

Press play on the little triangle above.
Be sure to stick around ’til the bitter end when I release a lovely and ladylike snort!

And don’t miss Tom, Kirstie, and Maks on Oprah Thursday….not liiiiiive! (Note: Check your listings — in some regions, it says this show is Friday!)

    “Let’s keep it below the belt” in re: Maks. Priceless…

    Theme week: I’d love to see them take on classical musicals. Still waiting for someone to do the dance that Danny Kaye and Vera-Ellen do at the beginning of “White Christmas”… but only if they could pull it off.

    “Sometimes you just have to take a stand, even if it’s in a stocking foot.” Oh, Tom, you are wonderful.

    Tom is the best! I used to watch his talk show 20 years ago when he was in Boston. I never missed it. He was so classy to all his guests. Great guy.
