Abc Ready To Dance With Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul received an indirect invitation to appear either as a judge or a performer on ABC's Dancing With the Stars. The invitation was extended over the weekend by ABC Entertainment President Steve McPherson as he met with television critics at their annual summer tour in Pasadena. McPherson said that he was "stunned" by Fox's inability to sign Abdul to a new deal. "I think she's a huge talent," he said, "and we'd love to get a piece of that. It would be great." (The Los Angeles Times said that McPherson and Abdul "once dated.") The ABC exec's remarks came even as a report was released noting that users of the TiVo digital recorders fast forward through Abdul's comments more than those of any other judge. Somewhat surprisingly, the study by Media IQ, shows that Randy Jackson is the most popular judge, but the number of TiVo viewers slips when Kara DioGuardi appears, slumps further when Abdul does, then spikes again for Simon Cowell's remarks.
