Anderson Cooper Needles Nancy Grace On 'Dancing With The Stars' (VIDEO)

Anderson Cooper weighed in on the recent "Dancing With The Stars" drama on his Wednesday show — and threw in a little jab at CNN colleague Nancy Grace in the process. (Grace is, of course, a contestant on the current season of the show.)

For those busy doing more productive things, a little backstory: one of the dancers on "DWTS" got into an argument with one of the judges, and it was big dancing news in the televised dancing world. Of course, Cooper keeps his ear to the ground for these things, and he addressed the fracas during his "Ridiculist" segment.

"Frankly, when I heard someone went off on the judges, I was sure it had to be Nancy Grace, but I stand corrected," he said. Boom! (Cooper had previously stuck up for Grace during that whole wardrobe malfunction thing.)

Cooper also threw in a closeup of his best Zoolander/serious anchor face, and said the line, "this is 'Dancing with the Stars,' damn it, a little decorum please!"

Take a look below.
