FishbowlDC has the scoop: MSNBC's Tucker Carlson will take his happy feet over to ABC for "Dancing WIth The Stars" where no doubt his predilection for bow ties will fit right in to the ballroom dancing portion of the competition. (For the uninitiated, "Dancing With The Stars" pairs a "celeb" of some sort with a professional dancer to compete in a series of numbers based on various styles of dance. Did somebody say "Rhumba?"). Some of you may remember Tucker's smooth dance-floor moves with his producer Willie Geist back during his "Situation" days; from that, we can assume that he will probably need a little help.on the floor (Tucker, you should probably let her lead). "Dancing WIth The Stars" has been a great PR move for people like Seinfeld's John O'Hurley, boxer Evander Holyfield (who rocked some elegant tux action - the boy cleans up good!), soap star Kelly Monaco, model/Stacy's Mom Rachel Hunter (whose real emotion during the show was actually quite touching), former Jessica Simpson brother-in-law Drew Lachey, and WWE diva Stacy Keibler; it should definitely give Tucker (and MSNBC) a boost once it airs. We were going to end on a lame "hot to foxtrot" joke but that would be beneath us. Cha-cha-cha!

Update: Here's vid of Tucker gettin' jiggy. We're glad he's seeking the help he so desperately needs.
