An Honest Inquiry
Is there anything Tom DeLay doesn't make worse?
ABC's decision to invite disgraced former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to participate in "Dancing with the Stars" may have backfired.
Monday's much ballyhooed ninth-edition debut of the ballroom dance competition attracted an average audience of 17.5 million viewers, according to early Nielsen stats.
That's the show's smallest opening audience since its very first year on the air, when viewers were still getting to know the imported BBC-produced reality series.
