LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Shannen Doherty is leaving the ballroom.

The actress was the first celebrity eliminated from the new season of "Dancing With the Stars." She and professional partner Mark Ballas were axed during Tuesday's episode.

The judges seemed to appreciate the couple's two dances, but fans failed to keep them afloat. Judges' scores are combined with viewer votes to determine which celebrity is ousted each week.

Doherty said she did the show for her dad, a big "Dancing" fan.

The remaining competitors include Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek, actors Niecy Nash, Pamela Anderson and Aiden Turner, reality stars Jake Pavelka and Kate Gosselin, singer Nicole Scherzinger, sportscaster Erin Andrews and football star Chad Ochocinco.
