Kirstie Alley & Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 'Dancing With the Stars'Kendra Wilkinson may have had the oddsmakers in her corner before this new season of 'Dancing with the Stars' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC), but it was Kirstie Alley that had us all eating out of her hands with an irreverent Cha-cha-cha.

Along with her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Alley brought a lot of fun and silliness to the dance floor. Even more impressively, she brought foot placement that Bruno Tonioli declared "the best of the night."

Also the best was their score of 23 in the Cha-cha-cha category (Wilkinson scored only 18). In fact, only Ralph Macchio's Foxtrot was stronger, and that by only one point.

It was an impressive debut for Alley. Her moves were so smooth and strong, she had Carrie Ann Inaba asking if she was really over 40. "Way!" said the 60-year old Alley.

"That was unbelievable," Inaba said.

Do you agree? Were you surprised by Alley's grace and poise on the dancefloor?
