Was Tom DeLay a downer for ‘Dancing with the Stars‘?
Ratings point to yes as viewers are finally returning to the ABC dance competition following DeLay’s forced departure, reports the Washington Post.
Much like a Jay Leno bit, a recent poll found that 24 percent of respondents had no clue who DeLay was.
This obviously goes against a ‘DWTS’ executive’s opinion that the politician would polarize audiences.
Michael Jackson, however, is a more reliable ratings grab.
Keeping that in mind ‘DWTS’ will put on a ballroom dance tribute to Jackson next Tuesday, according to Access Hollywood.
“I’m so excited. I can’t wait to see that,” La Toya Jackson said. “That’s gonna be fabulous.”
