OCTOBER 16, 2007

Dancing With the Stars welcomed co-host Samantha Harris back last night when Cheetah Girl Sabrina Bryan and partner Mark Ballas performed a flawless paso doble to Dead or Alive's "Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" to score this season's first 30. The others didn't fare so well as dancer after dancer violated the "no lift" rule while performing the Viennese waltz or the paso doble. Indy driver Helio Castroneves and All My Children's Cameron Mathison both managed to step up from last week's back-of-the-pack places into a three-way tie for second with 90210's Jennie Garth, whose fan following included fellow 90210-er and ballroom dancer Ian Ziering. This week could be light's out for Dallas Maverick's owner Mark Cuban, who finds himself at the bottom of the pile for the second week in a row.

Tonight's Results show features a former competitor and champ as a surprise guest, as well as a return appearance from Jimmy Kimmel.
