Just three weeks to go until Dancing with the Stars premieres and there’s already been one star out. Vincent Pastore from The Sopranos bowed out of the competition as he realized just how demanding the show is. John Ratzenberger from Cheers has stepped in and is partnered with Edyta Sliwinksa.

That doesn’t change my early prediction that DWTS will be won by Apolo! The only serious competition this early out would seem to be Ian since he’s paired with Cheryl Burke, who has won the past two seasons. Apolo is paired with a newcomer professional partner, Julianne Hough. It’s hard to say how having a newbie partner will affect his performance, but I’m still going with him anyway.
