Has anyone noticed the cute, shameless plugging the contestants of DANCING WITH THE STARS partake in on Twitter? These guys are synergistic, cross-promoting, social media moguls!

Example 1: Kirstie Alley asked Kristin Chenoweth for a sympathy vote this weekend. Cheno was naturally happy to oblige. She's Broadway/the planet's resident "nice girl," after all.
Example 2: Joey Fatone, no longer of NSYNC fame, (because no one remembers he was ever really in NYSYNC) puts out his voting number multiple times a day.

I’m all for this. I mean, hey, when you’re given a choice between two things you probably can’t do (the jive or quickstep) and are forced to give it the ‘ol heave-ho on national television, there’s nothing wrong with trying to land as many votes as possible. Who cares what methods you use. Let us not forget, Mitt Romney purchased followers on Twitter! I mean, it doesn’t get much worse than that.

We’ll see if Alley’s Twitter pleas can keep her on stage for another week, but as Bruno so wonderfully said: “The girl works hard for her money...you placed it beautifully you raunchy momma.” Yeah, “raunchy momma.” Yikes. Feel those goose bumps?

For now, here’s a little by-the-numbers breakdown of tonight’s episode:

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani: Jive, 23.5/30
Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas: Quickstep, 18/30
Helio Castroneves and Chelsie Hightower: Jive, 23/30

Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke: Quickstep, 22.5/30

Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson: Quickstep, 22.5/30
Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough: Jive, 25/30
