The 'Dancing With The Stars' Situation: Goodnight, Sweet Abs

As predicted, Tuesday night's (October 12) results episode of "Dancing With the Stars" did not go well at all for MTV Newsroom Blog favorite Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. He was sent packing last night after a middling performance on Monday followed by extremely low scores and a bit of an on-air temper tantrum. The "Jersey Shore" star exits the show after four weeks of competition, where he showed enthusiasm and charisma but just not very much actual skill or comfort with ballroom dancing. It was a reasonably entertaining showing, but ultimately not enough to carry him.

(As an aside, this is definitely not the place to watch if you're looking to place wagers on "Dancing With the Stars," as our favorites from the past two seasons — the Situation and Buzz Aldrin — have lasted a cumulative total of six weeks. Not the best batting average, really.)


Bristol Palin and Kurt Warner were both considered the other contestants "in jeopardy" last night, though it never seemed like anybody but the Situation would be walking through the exit door. The episode also featured some dancing from some professional alums as well as a visit from Florence and the Machine, who put on one of their typically bizarre and brilliant performances. Goo Goo Dolls also showed up for a performance, reminding the world that they have a new album (and while they were solid, they were not as good as Florence and the Machine).

With the Situation no longer lingering at near the basement door of "Dancing With the Stars," the bottom will now be the domain of Bristol Palin. Meanwhile, the other MTV alum on the show — former "The Hills" star Audrina Patridge — finds herself in the hunt for the top spot.
