Dancing Puts On The Ritz


ABC's Dancing With the Stars produced the best ratings of any entertainment show of the fall season Monday night as the final competition night nabbed a 15.7 rating and a 23 share in the 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. hour, according to Nielsen research. Judges' final scores had the team of Indy car racer Helio Castroneves and Julianne Hough and the team of Melanie Brown (The Spice Girls' Mel B or Scary Spice) and Maksim Chmerkovskiy in a dead heat while the team of Marie Osmond and Jonathan Roberts placed third. Judges on Monday night's show ruthlessly criticized Osmond's "free style number" in which she dressed as a rag doll. "This is the loopiest thing I've ever seen. It defies criticism," remarked judge Bruno Tonioli. Osmond, visibly perturbed by the criticism, shot back, "I don't buy it." As she left the stage, host Tom Bergeron said to her, "Don't have a hissy fit." Final results are due to be announced tonight (Tuesday) following a showdown between the two leaders.
