Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Is Bristol the new Palin powerhouse?

Move over Sarah Palin, there’s a new Palin powerhouse!

Everyone in the "Showbiz Tonight" morning meeting could not stop buzzing about Bristol Palin today. There were not many Bristol fans in our newsroom before her debut last night on “Dancing With the Stars,” but there was a unanimous sense this morning of, "Yeah, we kinda like her now!"

So today we're debating Bristol's transformation: Has she gone from the teen mom daughter of Sarah Palin to a star in her own right? Do we need any more stars from Wasilla?

Here’s the scoop on what else we've got on the show: There are two star couples who took shocking celebrity divorce detours, saying “I don’t” to splitting up, and there are startling new clues today that Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan may never mend their ways. Plus, we weigh in on whether or not Lady Gaga can sway the Senate.

It’s all making big news today on "Showbiz Tonight."

Watch Showbiz Tonight Weekdays Exclusively at 11PM ET on HLN.

    The only objection I have is that it's called Dancing with the Stars. Bristol Palin is not, has never been, and will never be a 'star'. She is a sweet small town girl who I fear is being used by her mother. She should be at home looking after her son, not embarrassing herself on national television. By the way, I notice that Bristol never mentions her father when she is on the show. Perhaps he does not support this use of his daughter.

    A lot of hostile jerks here, got nothing better to do than hate a 19 year old. You all should be ashamed of yourselves. And Joe, quit bragging, the last thing this country needs is another lawer.

      It's spelled lawyer idiot.

      And she plans to go into criminal prosecution.

      You won't think it is so funny when you are facing her on the witness stand.

    It's too bad my daughter is 3.7 GPA senior pre law student who has actually managed to not get knocked up while espousing abstinence. Otherwise she'd probably be famous just like that silly trollup Palin. Too bad, she could really use the money to go on to law school.

    "Do we need any more stars from Wasilla?" No, no, a thousand times NO!
