Dancing With the Stars Pulls in Record Viewers

Dancing with the Stars was a must-see last night. The cast has never been better, and everyone couldn’t wait to see Kate Gosselin, Pamela Anderson, and Shannen Doherty take the dance floor.

Last night’s two-hour season premiere drew in a record 23.9 million viewers! Top scores of the night went to Nicole Scherzinger and Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek. And though Kate Gosselin and her partner only score 16 points, most people tuned in to see how the mother of eight faired in the competition.

But in a new interview with Radar Online, Kate promises to up her game. “I’m letting myself go and I’m diving in headfirst. Forget my insecurities – I’m just gonna have fun with it,” Gosselin said in an interview with her partner Tony Dovolani.

Well, something worked last night, since the premiere gave ABC its best numbers in the two-hour block in 10 years. And we’ll definitely be tuning in next week!
