Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy
Our top moments of the week:
12. First Time for Everything Award: It's good to know there are still firsts 14 seasons in. Dancing with the Stars' Len Goodman — the stingiest judge of all and recipient of about, oh, 99 percent of the crowd's boos — issues his first mea culpa to Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd for giving them a 7 last week. "I under-marked you," he says. "I watched it back. You did a great job." See? Len does have a...
Tony Dovolani and Martin Navratilova
Dancing with the Stars had what head judge Len Goodman called its best premiere ever, but its premiere ratings are its worst ever.
Monday's Season 14 premiere averaged 18.5 million viewers and an all-time low 3.5 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, down 13 percent from the fall premiere and a whopping ...
Kym Johnson and David Arquette
Kym Johnson has two Mirrorball trophies, but this is the first time the Dancing with the Stars pro is trying to defend her title. She sat out the 10th season after winning with Donny Osmond, but Johnson, who won last season with Hines Ward, is still very much in the running on Season 13 with David Arquette. "I would love to defend. That would be incredible to win back to back," she tells TVGuide.com. "But honestly I don't really think about that. We've got a long road to go before I can even consider it." After landing in the actual bottom two on the second week, the pair has been steadily improving and Johnson believes they can win it all. But what do they need to go all the way? Plus: Get Johnson's take on the Maks-Len fracas...
Chaz Bono, Lacey Schwimmer
You can only imagine the enormity of the pressure on Chaz Bono during his six-week run on Dancing With the Stars: He was the child of Cher, one of the world's biggest celebrities, he had bad knees and was terribly out of shape, and there were rumors of death threats because his presence on the show made him the poster boy for the transgender community. In fact, the show's impressive security presence — big, beefy guys who are scattered throughout the ballroom — was always heightened when Chaz was on stage.
But he remained a humble, dignified, good-humored guy, holding his own in the face of ...

Dancing With The Stars
Dancing with the Stars stomped Game 5 of the World Series, averaging 17.17 million fans vs. 14.32 million.

Maks Chmerkovskiy, Len Goodman
"Maksgate." That's what ousted celebrity dancer Carson Kressley is calling the dust-up Monday night between pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy and two of the three Dancing With the Stars judges...
Danciing With The Stars, Mark Ballas, Chelsea Kane
Chelsea Kane is just three dances (and a couple million votes) away from a spot in Dancing with the Stars' final three, and she can't believe it herself. "I knew when I went on [the show] that a lot of the viewing audience had absolutely no clue who I was, so I was really afraid that I would be going home [early]," she tells TVGuide.com. "The fact the fact that people who haven't seen me before have invited me into their home and have voted for Mark [Ballas] and me into the semifinals is just amazing. I'm so flattered and I'm really having the time of my life." The Disney star has her work cut out for her this week: Besides two individual routines, she will face off with the other three couples in a winner-takes-all cha-cha with 15 points on the line. But after her and Ballas' heart-to-heart about his 'tude towards Len Goodman, Kane says the duo is "clicking better ever."
