DWTS Finale Gets Record Ratings

Bristol Palin lost Dancing With the Stars Tuesday night, but she sure helped out ABC: The show got its highest ratings since 2007 during the finale, and an even bigger number during last half hour of the show, when the awards are presented. Some 24.1 million viewers saw the whole show, and 26.4 million tuned in to see Dirty Dancing actress Jennifer Grey win and Disney Channel actor Kyle Massey take second place. Palin stirred things up when she said prayer had gotten her to the show, but that winning "would be a great middle finger to all the people who hate my mom and me."
