Sit down and don't touch the remote! It's TV Theme Week on Dancing with the Stars. Whose routine was must-see TV? Find out below!

Oh, show, you never fail to impress and annoy me with your numerous ways to fill up time. Did anyone else want to kill themselves during the first 30 minutes? Since there was no dancing. At all. Do we really need the judges to recap every couple's progress when we've watched it all? Irony of ironies that this is happening on TV Theme Week. ABC, cue up a sitcom for 9:30, STAT!


Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovksiy: quickstepThey have the Friends theme, "I'll Be There for You," by The Rembrandts. I heart Friends. I wrote about the show for my college essay. Fact. So this best be a good one. Maks says the routine will embrace friendship, and they get a much more, uh, friendly, non-tense package. About time! The routine starts off a little gimmicky, but it's kind of adorable at the same time. This is easily Brandy's best performance so far. It's fun, lively and full of spark. They make great use of the stage, and the whole routine is going at breakneck speed, as a quickstep should. Brandy's upper-body posture is great and doesn't get tripped up with the fast and furious steps. Len is "so impressed" and calls it her best dance. Bruno broke his pen from counting the beats. Carrie Ann sees an amazing new bond between them.
Score: 27
