Your road map to this week's entertainment-themed podcast:
00:37 So You Think You Can Dance: Finally, the live shows begin! In two shocking surprises, someone tap-danced, and Terri preferred a contemporary routine over a ballroom one.
11:40 West Wing: In last week's "Shutdown," the political house returned to order. In "Abu el Banat," it's the Bartlet family getting its groove back. Mentioned: The West Wing Weekly podcast.
20:36 Making It: Once we heard "Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman" we were all in on this crafting competition show. We can find faults with the execution (as the panelists did on this episode of the Extra Hot Great podcast), but we'll stick with it for the host cuteness.
Next week, more of the same: The new episodes of So You Think You Can Dance and Making It, plus "The Stormy Present" from West Wing's season 5.
Join parenting and education writers Terri Mauro, Catherine Holecko, and Nicole Eredics for daily chats on parenting teens and young adults (and a little TV-watching too).
