'Dancing with the Stars' eliminated contestant: 'People got to know me'

Maksim Chmerkovskiy, you got served!

No, the hot-headed Ukrainian American wasn’t booted off Dancing with the Stars after generating headlines for his row with Judge Len Goodman and his behavior toward his partner. But he was royally teased on national TV Tuesday by the latest contestant to leave the show – and boy did the moment generate a lot of laughs.

'Terra Nova' ratings drop on Halloween night

Fox’s Terra Nova ratings got spooked on Halloween night, falling more than any other broadcast show after spending a week off the air due to baseball coverage.

Terra Nova returned to 6.4 million viewers and a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating, down 25 percent compared to its last original airing. (Bummer — some say it was the show’s best episode, recap here.) Given that Terra Nova airs at 8 p.m. and is targeted toward families, it was probably the most likely series to take a punch.

And Terra Nova wasn’t the only show to take a holiday night hit in the ratings — pretty much every series was down, except… READ FULL STORY

'Dancing with the Stars': Did the show get back at angry Maks?

One week after Maksim Chmerkovskiy challenged Judge Len Goodman on Dancing with the Stars, the ABC show seemed to have the last word on the popular (though often controversial) pro. Two of the rehearsal packages during Monday’s show were edited to make Chmerkovskiy look like an unyielding and very impatient instructor who’s reduced to striking partner Hope Solo in an effort to make a point.

To wit: While Chmerkovskiy and Solo were practicing with Team Paso Doble, the Ukrainian-American pro slapped the soccer player on the shoulders before frantically whipping her around. An exasperated Solo responded by saying, “would you stop being you?”

Chmerkovskiy then left the rehearsal hall, leaving teammate Derek Hough to instruct Solo, instead. READ FULL STORY

'Dancing with the Stars' eliminated contestant: 'I am not leaving this show bitter or angry'

For many celebrities who participate on Dancing with the Stars, making it beyond the halfway point is an accomplishment in itself. But when an exit is predicated by some particularly harsh words from the judges, leaving the ABC show can feel pretty bittersweet. READ FULL STORY

Len Goodman on 'Dancing With the Stars' feud with Maks: 'You can't be a judge at your own trial' -- VIDEO

Dancing With the Stars head judge Len Goodman has taken to Access Hollywood to address longtime professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s claim on Monday night that the celebrities on DWTS are judged on their “so-called potential” instead of the performance of the night.

“How often, in the heat of the moment, we say things where we think why did I say that? I think Maks is going through one of those period right now,” Goodman said.

“What they have to understand is: They’re on trial. We’re the judges,” Goodman clarified. “You can’t be the judge at your own trial.”

On Monday night, after Len called Hope Solo’s rumba her worst dance of the season, he said Maks was to blame for half of that and reminded the pro that he’s been in this business for 50 years. “Maybe it’s time to get out,” Maks shot back.

'Dancing with the Stars': Maks Chmerkovskiy blows up at judges, claims 'this is my show'

Does Dancing with the Stars belong to Maksim Chmerkovskiy?

That seemed to be the pro’s perspective on Monday after he and Judge Len Goodman butted heads over the quality of his rumba with Hope Solo. (It earned a mere 20 out of 30). After Goodman called it their “worst dance of the season,” Chmerkovskiy lost his cool: First he suggested that “maybe it’s time” for Goodman to leave the business after the elder judge talked about being in it for 50 years, and then the hot pro got downright indignant when Carrie Ann Inaba chided him for being disrespectful.

'Dancing with the Stars' eliminated contestant: 'When they played the montage, it was like I died!'

Carson Kressley may not have always earned the highest scores, but he certainly delivered the biggest laughs on Dancing with the Stars this fall. Too bad the guy who kept the judges and his fellow celebrities in stitches didn’t last to see another day under the mirror ball: Kressley, whose jive with Anna Trebunskaya: was called “a crowning achievement in madness” on Monday, became the latest contestant to live Dancing with the Stars.

'Dancing with the Stars': J.R. Martinez, who 'doesn't know how to be sexy,' earns his first 10

Karina Smirnoff had to crack the whip on J.R. Martinez to get him into sexy mode for Dancing with the Stars Monday, but her actions paid off big time: The always consistent pair pulled their highest score of the season with a 28 (two 9s and their first 10) for a samba to Gloria Estefan’s “Conga.”

Carrie Ann Inaba called it “friggin’ amazing.”

“It’s funny, she kept telling me, ‘Be sexy here! Be masculine!’ and I would do something and she’s like, ‘That’s not sexy! That’s
not masculine!'” Martinez — whose first initials stand for Jose Rene — told reporters afterwards. “And I was like, ‘I don’t know how to be sexy!’  I really don’t. It’s not my thing.  I don’t think I’m a sexy and masculine type of guy, but tonight, it was fun. “It’s great to be on top, but the fact that we got our first 10 of the season was really cool.” READ FULL STORY

'Two and a Half Men' comes down to earth, 'Dancing with the Stars' trips

The hype over Ashton Kutcher and Two and A Half Men has finally settled down and the ratings are starting to show it: The sitcom posted a 5.8 rating/13 share and 15.8 million viewers on Monday — down 7% to its lowest rated episode this season, according to early results. But hey, the competition should be so lucky to report such “dips” in the ratings: CBS still won the night in the key 18-49 demo (3.9/9), even though all of its comedies — and one drama — posted season lows. How I Met Your Mother earned a 3.9/11 and 8.9 million, followed by 2 Broke Girls (4.2/10, 10.5 million), Mike & Molly (4.0/9, 11.7 million) and Hawaii Five-0 (2.6/6, 9.7 million). READ FULL STORY

'Dancing with the Stars': Ricki Lake earns some 10s ... and feels like an idiot at the same time

Ricki Lake scored this season’s first set of 10s on Dancing with the Stars Monday, but the talk show host was kicking herself for muttering something during rehearsal that ended up into Monday’s video package.

While practicing the paso doble to the Psycho theme, Lake got so frustrated with herself that she whined, “I want to quit, like I totally want to quit.” After her performance with partner Derek Hough earned a 29 from the judges, Lake expressed regret afterwards for breaking down at practice.

'Dancing with the Stars': Cher was there! (Not that Chaz Bono noticed)

All eyes may have been focused on Cher — who lived up to the hype by finally attending a taping of Dancing with the Stars Monday — but Chaz Bono wasn’t among those ogling the diva who was positioned next to David Arquette’s daughter.

In fact, Bono kept his attention off his family, including stepmother Mary Bono, who was also in the house. “When we’re dancing I try to just focus on [Lacey] and what we’re doing,” said Bono, who performed a Rocky-themed paso doble with partner Lacey Schwimmer that earned a standing ovation from a teary-eyed Cher. “It was great to have everyone here. It pumped me up. I know my mom was really proud of me and that was awesome. I’m glad that whatever we’re doing is touching people. READ FULL STORY

'Dancing with the Stars' eliminated contestant: 'Maybe my story didn't help!'

Good news for those amateur hoofers who end up at bottom of the leaderboard each week: You’re not always the most obvious target for elimination. No where was that more apparent than during Tuesday’s results episode of Dancing with the Stars, when one of the B (C? D?) Listers who earned a middle-of-the-pack score on Monday ended up having to pack a bag on Tuesday. (Way to dodge a bullet, Chaz!)
