‘Terrible’ Mike Catherwood out on ‘Dancing With the Stars’

Updated: September 24, 2012 6:25AM

Mike Catherwood has joined an “august group” on “Dancing With the Stars,” host Tom Bergeron told him last night. He was the first voted off this season. That means that the “Loveline” radio host joins the ranks of Jeffrey Ross, Kenny Mayne, David Hasselhoff and Tucker Carlson.

“To be mentioned alongside the names like Hasslehoff and Mayne, that pretty much puts me on the Mount Rushmore of terrible dancers,” Catherwood said. “And it feels good, Bergeron. It feels good.”

The results weren’t a surprise. Though Wendy Williams and Sugar Ray Leonard joined him in the bottom three, Catherwood was in a league of his own. Even with choreography focused predominantly on Lacey Schwimmer’s butt, viewers could see Catherwood had zero potential. All credit to him for at least not succumbing to white man’s overbite.
