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.)
