The PBS crowd probably didn't get excited by the Tv host and author's so-so dancing.

The fact he had a book out last week and was so busy didn't help matters in terms of his rehearsal time. Then again, he clearly was never a contender.

"I have no regrets," he said. "The art of dance I love. But it takes time to perfect it."

Michael Waltrup, the race car driver, was arguably weaker than Smiley and had lower overall scores but his fans kept him alive a extra week. Nonetheless, he probably won't be around long. (He was in the supposed bottom three.)

The couples who are "in danger" is often a fallacy since they are not always reflective of lowest voters' scores. Sadie Robertson was theoretically in "jeopardy" but I can't imagine she really was. This was similar to last week when Lea Thompson was placed in the same situation.
