D.L. Hughley was the celebrity contestant sent home during last night's Dancing With the Stars. Throughout the competition, Hughley often found himself at risk of elimination, but until now had managed to stay alive. This week, however, it was Hughley's turn to leave the show.

On Monday's Dancing with the Stars, Hughley had performed a Tango with his pro partner Cheryl Burke. When the judges cast their scores, Hughley was awarded a meager 18 points, tying him with fellow comedian Andy Dick for last place.

After learning that it was his time to exit the competition, Hughley humbly stated, “I’ve been playing with house money. Thank you for keeping us in the competition this long.”

During his stint on the dancing reality show, Hughley was the recipient of perhaps the harshest criticism from the judges. Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli found it difficult to find areas to praise during his dance routines, and often criticized his hip movement (or lack thereof.) However, they all also agreed that Hughley had bravely continued to make an effort and had taken their jabs with grace.
General Hospital's Ingo Rademacher and boxer Victor Ortiz had also been in jeopardy of getting voted off the show last night. Dancing With the Stars will return next Monday on ABC at 8/7c with the stars performing dances set to songs by Stevie Wonder.
