Dancing with the Stars' Ratings Record: 23.9 Million Viewers!

Dancing with the Stars' Ratings Record: 23.9 Million Viewers!

Thanks to its all-star cast, Dancing With the Stars pulled in a record 23.9 million viewers last night during the two-hour season premiere.

Kate Gosselin has said she’s not the greatest of dancers and judge Bruno Toniolo agreed when she did the Viennese waltz to Billy Joel‘s “She’s Only A Woman”.

“The technique was terrible,” he said. “It looked like [your partner Tony Dovolani] was pushing a shopping cart around the floor. You have to exude something.”

Top scores of the night went to Pussycat Doll frontwoman Nicole Scherzinger and Olympic figure skating champ Evan Lysacek. And of course Pamela Anderson ripped her partner Damian Whitewood‘s shirt open!

WHO ARE YOU rooting for this season of DWTS???

Well she doesn’t exude talent – but she more than makes up for it in the cheap looks department….poor guy looked more like he was trying to put moves on a blow up doll rather than dancing!

I was rooting for Mel B to be the co-host instead of Brooke Burke.. but that’s another matter..

This is the first time that I don’t really care about who wins DWTS, and I watched this show from the beginning years ago.

My prediction for the top three are Shannon, Nicole, and Evan (Olympic skater).

# 3

Kate has a beer gut.

# 4

Pam looked sooo sexy!
She doesn’t give a **** and that’s why I like her. I’m just waiting for her to do something outrageous. LOL

# 5

Go Buzz Aldrin!!

# 6

GO NICOLE AND DEREK!

# 7

JAKE AND CHELSIE!!!!!!

# 8

Chelsie Hightower is hot.

# 9

Pam Anderson acts and looks like a cheap *********.

no class at all. ugh

I’m rooting for Evan Lysacek!

Why is Kate Gosselin on this show? She is not a star. I had to laugh when they read the accomplishments of the other participants. Kate has done nothing to deserve a spot in the lineup, other than growing six babies at once in her clown uterus.
The scenes of her and Tony practicing showed the real Kate Gosselin – annoyed, bitchy, sighing. And she glared those Manson lamps at the judge when he said it looked like Tony was lugging around a shopping cart. That’s the real Kate Gosselin. Not the fake hair-weaved, boob jobbed- tummy tucked, overly made up fraud you saw on the show.
Please pray for her children..

That’s because the beautiful Brooke Burke was the new hostess.

She has the best body in Hollywood.

I think she was very nervous, but did pretty good. Pam was very loose and limber to say the least, practice makes perfect and she’s had years.

Pam Anderson can dance.

@butterflier: If Dude from The Bachelor is a star then Kate is a star.

# 3- Chug…

what do you expect? A woman that has carried and gave birth to twins and sextuplets- a total of 8 children!!

Every time you say idiot things like this….I your nose will grow an inch each and everytime you idiot.

Don’t like Kate…but, your comment is stupid.

Tomorrow morning…check the mirror!

I’m rooting for Shannon as she is overcoming her fear of live performances, she breaks out in hives. She is also doing it for her father who always wanted her do DWTS, he loves the show and suffered a stroke, she dances and overcomes her fears and he works on his speech and recovery…a very special package deal between father and daughter.

I can’t believe people watch that crappy show.

I cannot believe all the PR that certain dancers have gotten compared to others, I read “People” magazine has jumped the shark in their over-kill of promotion. I quit buying that rag years ago as their quality of journalism went south, it used to be something.

Pam Anderson just looks ….. messy. Kate Gosselin just needs to stop trying to be something she isn’t and go back to Pennsylvania to take care of what is left of her family. Hopefully it isn’t to late.

DWTS is obviously fun to watch but is it possible for people to DVR the show and watch Chuck live instead? It’s what my family does and Chuck needs the ratings a lot more.

Nothing like a Fame Ho in a bubble gum barbie dress stumbling her way thru yet another attempt at superstardom……..back at the farm her kids are still reeling from the break up of their parents….

this broad will rank as one of the biggest manipulators and liars of all time…..true narcissist; like I have always said, she and Brad’s ex should be besties…….no two women could be more alike….

I will only watch for Brooke Burke.

What a cutie!!!

readerLady @ 03/23/2010 at 3:31 pm

well, i was home with my cats and I tried and tried not to put the show on but my one cat kept telling me to watch. So I turned on the TV and low and behold there was Kate calling to me. It was magic. I did not want to watch but I blame it on my having a cold. That is why I watched – the cold in my head told me to do it. Either that or one of my cats turned the tv on. I don’t know what it is about Kate. I hate her so much but I cannot break her grip on me and my viewing habits.

I thought it was hysterical when Carrie Ann said to Kate “You are very different than past contestants. You are not a performer. You are not an athlete.” In other words, WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON THIS SHOW????? It’s Dancing with the STARS, not Dancing with Wannabees!!!!!!
