Who is out first on ‘Dancing With the Stars: All Stars’?

Pamela Anderson tried to bust a move but ended up being a bust – again.

She was the first celebrity cut from the “Dancing With the Stars” all star edition on ABC tonight, which surprised nobody, not even Anderson herself.

“I was ready for it,” Anderson said. “We got the lowest score. We’ll keep dancing.”

Indeed, her cha cha didn’t impress the judges, who gave her a  17 points out of 30, by the lowest score among the 12 celebrities. (The only others with fewer than 20 were Kirstie Alley and Bristol Palin.)

Ratings for the first episode Monday night were way down from a year ago, when they were 18.9 million viewers and a 3.9 18-49 rating. This year’s debut was a mere 14.1 million and a 2.5 18-49 rating.

The big difference: NBC’s “The Voice,” which pulled in a 12.2 million viewers but 60 percent more 18-49 viewers with a 3.9 rating.  (”Monday Night Football” on ESPN outdrew everything on broadcast TV with 16 million viewers and a whopping 6.4 18-49 rating.)

Two “busts” in one sentence about Pamela Anderson? Only RoHo could pull that off innocently!

@Dum-Bass That was very much pulled off not so innocently at all! :)

You mean it was intentional! Wow, had me fooled and totally in awe! (in other words, it was awe-ful) Anybody ever tell you “you have a word with ways?”

No big surprise on the elimination. Pam Anderson had no business being in the all-star line up in the first place. The bigger shocker was Drew/Anna in the bottom two. Wrong on so many levels. I’m not surprised rating were down either. FB boards are reeling with the assortment of stars. Lots of criticism about the all-star format; why bring back champions? why half-points in the scoring, etc etc. I’ve watched since season one. It’s always fun, mindless viewing.

I agree with Dick Whiskey, she looks horrible with or without makeup. What is the big deal about her?

Typical network …PR works overtime building up the show to get ratings….ALL-STARS…are you kidding me…didn’t even watch the 2nd night…tuned in about 9:55PM just to see if our prediction of Pam being the first to got and it was. What in the world was she even doing on the show…but I guess it pays the bills…and the judges….and the pro dancers…like so many shows….”way” too long.

The ONLY thing that disappoints me about Pam being off the show is that it also means Tristan is off, too. I LOVE his accent!

It’s time for Bristol to put on her big girl panties and stop hiding behind mom’s skirt. “…I’m best know for being Sarah Palin’s daughter…” Pllleeeaaassseeee. Mom’s 15 minutes were over 4 years ago.
