Kurt Warner, Rick Fox likely to survive on 'DWTS'

Tue, Oct 19

It was TV theme show week on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" Monday, and athletes Rick Fox and Kurt Warner likely will survive another week.

Warner, a future Hall of Fame quarterback, danced the quickstep with partner Anna Trebunskaya to the theme of the 1970's show "Bewitched." The three judges gave the duo a 24 out of 30 as eight couples battle for the crown.

"You always want to be good on Monday night," Warner said. "You put in so much time for that one hour. You do so much dancing just to get it right. I just have to remember to have fun out there."

Fox and partner Cheryl Burke also got a 24 for their rendition of a rumba to the theme song to the 1980's show "Hill Street Blues."

"I've lost some weight out there and I look great!" said Fox, who retired in 2004 after 13 years in the NBA. "But I'm exhausted and I have some strange aches and pains that I know I didn't get from basketball."

The duo with the highest score Monday was Brandy and Maks Chmerkovskiy (27), followed by Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough (25) and then the athletes.

Likely to go home Tuesday are either Florence Henderson/Corky Ballas (21), Kyle Massey/Lacy Schwimmer (20) or Bristol Palin/Mark Ballas (18).
