In a strange turn of events last night, a CBS personality was in charge of an ABC series.

On Dancing with the Stars, host Tom Bergeron turned the gig over to Jeff Probst briefly. As the Survivor leader tol TV Guide, though, he was happy to help.

"My very first job was working with Tom on the FX Network," said Probst. "He was hosting a morning show and he was like the guy. He was the guy everyone else looked to to see how it's done. He's so good. And you can really see it here when he's flying off the cuff."

However, Probst wasn't in the audience for Bergeron: He came as a guest of an old friend, Marlee Matlin. Can he dance?

"No," Probst said "But I try. I take salsa lessons on Wednesday nights with some friends, and I'm so bad. When I watch these guys out here I think it's amazing. How can they remember all the steps, let alone worrying about not making a silly face?"
