cheerleaders are dancers gone retarded

This one’s for our pal Fork who is now walking the barren deserts of Nevada in hopes that the CW will soon give him another show with nubile young stars to moon over. Alyson Michalka stars as a gymnast who is forced into trying out for the cheerleading team (hmm…sound familiar?). The show is based on the book Cheer: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders by Kate Torgovnick and also stars Ashley Tisdale, Heather Hemmens, Matt Barr, Robbie Jones, Gail O’Grady, and Elena Esovolova. The cheering begins Wednesday nights starting September 8, 2010 at 9/8c on the CW.
