But we know that America doesn't always agree with the judges, and popularity is as much a factor as anything else. David Arquette and J.R. Martinez also scored below a 50, but really it could've been virtually anyone going as the scores tend to tighten up as we near the end of competition.
Apparently, the offense was that Arquette used Simon Cowell's bathroom, which didn't go over well at all. In his words, "I took a dump in Simon Cowell's bathroom and then everybody got all up in arms."
Cher looked like a proud mama watching her son dance to the theme from 'Rocky.' it was Chaz's best performance ... EVER (but I'm not changing my mind about this). It even brought Carrie Ann -- and Cher! -- to tears. However, did the crowd really give Cher a standing ovation when Chaz mentioned her? Chaz, you may have had your best dance of the competition, but you still got served by your mother. Granted, your mother is Cher.
Speaking of Cher, one of my favorite parts of the night was watching Cher's reactions to the judges critiquing Chaz. She was cheering, clapping, jumping and even praying -- yes, praying. It was pretty adorable.
Luckily, Arquette appeared to develop the giggles through the course of the interview, so there was no chance he was made uncomfortable by the question. We did love his response to David Letterman's initial question asking how Courteney Cox was.
"Courteney's fantastic," he said, and then after a pause. "We're still separated."
Carson Kressley, said Gifford, would provide the laughs for the show. Of former George Clooney girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis, Gifford said, "She's gotta do something now, she's not going out with George Clooney anymore." She also said she had known about Nancy Grace's casting in advance, but had to keep it secret.
It remains to be seen who'll emerge as the front-runner on the 13th season of 'Dancing With the Stars,' which debuts Monday, Sept. 19 at 8PM ET on ABC. But, by early indications, contestant Nancy Grace is the one to beat on the press line.
The outspoken Grace didn't mince words as to why she came to L.A. to do the show. She's here anyway to cover the Michael Jackson murder case.
"I understand the defense attorney wants the jury sequestered from Nancy Grace," says the former prosecutor. "I can only say that his client is charged with standing by, talking on the phone to his girlfriend while the King of Pop, a music icon, lay on that bed and died ... I don't think it was altogether a bad thing that they asked the jury to be sequestered from me."
Grace is hoping that this trial sends a message that even rich celebrities accused of crimes deserve justice.
"Many people are still angry at Michael Jackson over the molestation charges. What many of them don't see is that Lady Justice is blind to the defendant and the victim. It doesn't matter what Jackson did or didn't do. It's a slippery slope to start judging victims."
So WWE pro wrestler Chris (and lead singer of heavy metal band Fozzy) and David (dressed as a pro wrestler) competed with 'Total Eclipse of the Heart.' Neither did an amazing job, but at least they appear to have bonded during the chorus.
Who do you think gave the better performance? Watch the video, then decide for yourself.

"There's a lot to relationships in general. You just have to really work at them. They're not easy, and you have to ... be kind to each other and ... figure out what each other's ... buttons are and figure out how not to push them," Arquette said. "You can't leave your heart open. You have to be committed."

The good news: 'Cougar Town' already completed three new episodes prior to the shut down. One of the episodes includes Cox's highly-anticipated reunion with her former 'Friends' co-star, Lisa Kudrow. Kudrow will play a dermatologist whose treatments Jules (Cox) quickly becomes addicted to.
No official announcement has been made regarding the issue, although there is one possible explanation for all of this: a baby. During the publicity rounds for 'Cougar Town,' Cox admitted that she and hubby David Arquette were open to the idea of expanding their family. "We're not trying yet," she told OK!, via ABC News. "We're revving up the engines. I'm only ready 'cause time's a-ticking."
As if that isn't enough, Leslie and Dave the Cop don't stand the test of time. "We were so lucky to get Louis C.K.," says Poehler of her character's love interest, "but he's starting his own show."
Luckily, it has just been confirmed by Entertainment Weekly that 'Parks' fans will see that role filled by none other than Poehler's real-life love, Will Arnett. Of course, Poehler and Arnett have worked together many times, including on 'Arrested Development' and in films such as 'Blades of Glory' and 'Monsters vs. Aliens.' So it's only natural that Arnett would stop by 'Parks.'
Arnett's arrival on the show will coincide with that of Justin Theroux who will, incidentally, also vie for Leslie's heart.
With thoughts of Arnett and Poehler teaming up again, we brainstormed some other real-life couples whose pairings would translate well to the small screen.
(S02E04) "Where are you living anyway?" - Ned to Emerson
Did you realize that this week's Pushing Daisies episode is actually only the 13th installment of the refreshing series? I forgot about it for a second or two when I told myself "About time!" after realizing that "Frescorts" was going to offer us some Emerson backstory. I guess the almost-nine-months hiatus, thanks to the writers' strike, made us long for more details about the show's characters. In any case, let me say this: Yay for some Emerson backstory!
The CW may have kicked off its fall season on Labor Day, but for most of the other networks, things are just getting started. So what does that mean for you? Heavy promotion for not only the new shows premiering this fall, but for returning favorites as well. To that end, My Name Is Earl creator Greg Garcia and star Jason Lee spoke with reporters recently about Earl's upcoming 4th season.
My Name Is Earl returns for its 4th season on NBC with two back-to-back episodes, September 25 at 8pm. Not only did Garcia and Lee give us a taste of what to expect when we catch up with our favorite Camdenites, but they also dished the dirt on dream guest stars, what previous guest star peed over by craft services, if an Earl movie is in the works, and perhaps a word or two about a famously abrasive 30 Rock star. All of the details are after the jump.
I'll save the character-specific information for after the jump. Arquette will guest star in the fourth episode of Pushing Daisies' second season. While he's definitely an acquired taste, David Arquette seems just odd enough to fit in with the show's unique cast of characters.
(S04E04) " " - The cast of Medium
There are probably a lot of things about being deaf that are not pleasant but not being able to listen to a Godzilla movie is one that never occurred to me.
I understand that actors will often be typecast into a certain role and may play similar characters on television, but I would think the casting director for Medium would have a little more sense than to cast Dr. Martin Candle from Lost as the hearing specialist.
Truth be told, I think the interaction of Allison and her brother would have been enough to sell me on this episode. They were very good together. Two of their scenes stood out to me. The first one was the meeting with Tanya King (Cindy Pickett). Allison's reaction to Michael's "psychic" work was very amusing. Every time she gave a drawn out sigh I laughed.
