Dancing with the Stars killed it in the ratings last night! We know you tuned in last night to see what Kate would do — and she definitely gave you more than you bargained for!

Talk about knocking it straight out of the park! The second episode of Dancing with the Stars that aired March 30 brought in an unprecedented amount of viewers — 21.12 million for the first hour, and 24 million for the second! And WE know why the ratings were sky high! Everyone tuned into DWTS to see what reality TV mom Kate Gosselin would do! Kate broke DWTS history — not for her score but for her ridiculously dramatic fight with her partner Tony Dovolani! She had an emotional meltdown on last night’s episode, causing Tony to storm off and say “I quit!” We know this mom of eight can be controlling but we believe she totally hyped it up for dramatic effect!

Kate’s probably trying to take the focus off of her lack of dancing skills and figures this is how she’ll be voted back each week. She got an overall score of 15/30 last night, and a 16/30 the week before … not good at all! Kate, we think you’re hoping people will vote for you to stay just so they can be entertained by you, rather than watch you dance — pretty smart if you ask us!

Do you think Kate’s fight will cause the ratings to increase for tonight’s elimination round?

Tell us what you think! Is Kate pretend-fighting for the cameras?
