10. Tommy Chong Lights Up Dancing With the Stars

For two months this fall, fans tuned in to ABC every Monday night to root for the King of the Stoners, Tommy Chong, who was selected to appear on the 19th season of Dancing With the Stars. The suave comedian lasted until the semi-finals, hoofing and puffing (well, not that kind of puffing) with partner Peta Murgatroyd. Week after week, they moved on, despite Chong's 76-year-old legs. When it was over, he admitted ABC had censored him. "The network refused to let me throw my pot kisses to the audience," Chong wrote on his CelebStoner blog. "Oh well. Having me on the show was the ultimate pot kiss anyway."
