'Dancing With The Stars' Results:  Tavis Smiley No More As He Ex
Despite a dance that was full of life, it was goodbye for activist and PBS journalist Tavis Smiley and Sharna Burgess. Although Smiley tried to stay on track, his promotional schedule for his latest book, "Death of a King" detailing Martin Luther King's last year was just too much for him to handle alongside his dance duties for the show.

Monday evening's show gave those that fell flat last round a chance to redeem themselves with a theme night, "My Jam Monday." Topping the leaderboard were Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintsev and following a close second were Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovs...

It was a tense first outing for many of the new couples on the first episode of "Dancing with the Stars." The judges were expecting big show-stopping numbers, but instead were disappointed with many of the celebs' routines.
