Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Len Goodman
Monday's Dancing with the Stars smackdown between Maks Chmerkovskiy and judge Len Goodman got you guys talking — and as a result, the show skyrocketed to No. 1 on our Social Power Rankings list. Based on your feedback, one thing is clear: The majority of TVGuide.com users are Team Maks. On Facebook, Debbie Pokriots Franko posted, "The judges are persecuting Hope. Maks had every right to defend her." TVGuide.com user Sauly001 agrees: "Now it has turned vicious and nasty and it gets worse every season. The judges should judge and not take turns being rude, crude and socially unacceptable."
Not everyone is thrilled about Maks' behavior though. "Len is the same every season. He is a tough judge and always has been," user Terri LaValle posted on TVGuide.com. "Fair or not, it is what it is. That doesn't give Maks the right to be disrespectful."
