The new season of this contest (think Dancing With the Stars meets The Biggest Loser) has 12 saving graces: its endearing contenders. Even if the likes of flashy Adamme and poised LaToya aren't exactly Nicole Scherzinger on the dance floor, it's a kick to watch their enthusiastic and hilariously animated moves to hits such as "Tik Tok." Before those moments arrive, however, viewers must slog through a tired conga line of padded auditions and confessions about lousy eating habits. (Oxygen, 11 P.M.)
