Dancing with the Stars 4 debuts tonight

ABC kicks off a fourth season of its dancing quasi-celebrities show Dancing with the Stars tonight at 8 p.m. ET, with its ridiculously padded results shows airing Tuesdays at 9.

USA TODAY says the “competition’s biggest attraction ever” might be Heather Mills, Paul McCartney’s one-legged ex. She’s already making fun of herself in ads for the show, when she says, “”My main concerns are keeping my leg on.”

The paper argues that “[m]any viewers probably will tune in to see Heather Mills — vilified in the worldwide press over her nasty divorce from beloved ex-Beatle Paul McCartney — try to burnish a gold-digging image. Others will be driven by morbid curiosity.”

But others may tune in to watch the epic showdown between Cliff Claven face off against ‘NSyncer Joey Fatone.
