Dancing With The Stars Ratings

Last night’s Dancing With The Stars elimination was less about who went home, and more about who didn’t go home.

80 year-old Buzz Aldrin’s elimination didn’t exactly come as a big surprise, as he had the lowest scores this season. What was surprising was that for the second week in a row, Kate Gosselin avoided elimination. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom wasn’t even in the bottom two.

“I did this show for the fighter pilots, the military, the older geezers like me,” said Buzz, who received a standing ovation from the audience. “I thank everyone who voted for me.”

Rounding up the bottom two with Buzz was surprisingly Jake Pavelka, former star of The Bachelor. A lot of people are questioning why people continue to vote for Kate? Well some reports believe people are voting for her because they feel sorry for her, or because they find her somewhat relatable.

Kate however continues to take a beating in the press. We reported yesterday that her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, plans on taking her to court in an attempt to get custody of their eight children and stop paying her $22,000 a month in child support. And now the latest today is Kate gracing the cover of UsWeekly magazine under the headline – “Inside Kate’s Train Wreck.”  The magazine cover accuses her of torturing her partner Tony, and blowing off practice to shop.

In other DWTS news, the show is having it’s best season ever, as the ratings continue to soar. For the first time ever, an episode of DWTS beat American Idol in the ratings. Last week’s episode of DWTS averaged 23 million viewers compared to the 21.9 million viewers Idol received. Some are calling it the Kate Gosselin effect, it seems those who love her, or simply love to hate her, are tuning in to watch her.

TELL US – DID THE VIEWERS GET IT RIGHT BY ELIMINATING BUZZ?

Good news for ABC! Their decision to thrown in one or two random controversial reality stars in the mix of their new season of Dancing With The Stars is drastically paying off.

Monday night’s premiere episode was the highest rated episode ever for the DWTS series. The two hour debut averaged over 23.9 million total viewers. This is a drastic increase compared to the 17.5 million viewers that watched last season’s debut.

And for those who missed the premiere episode, ABC has decided to rebroadcast it this Saturday at 8:00/7:00c.

In other DWTS news, Kate Gosselin continues to be the center of negative media attention. First, UsWeekly posted a story stating that the Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom was a total nervous wreck backstage. Kate, who scored the night’s third lowest score looked “so nervous the entire time,” reveals an onlooker.

A dancing expert also reveals to UsWeekly that Kate will likely be the first one voted off. The NYPost is also reporting that Kate continues to be a diva on the set of the show, and that she is always late for hair and makeup.

“The staff has warned her and lectured her about being late, but Kate just gets angry and blows them off,” says the source. “No one wants to deal with her.”

UsWeekly also reports that though The Bachelor’s Vienna Girardi sat in the audience with fiance Jake Pavelka‘s parents, she paid zero attention to them. “They did not speak at all or interact — it was very noticeable to me,” says a witness.

Also sitting with Vienna was former Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand, whom Vienna chatted with all night.
