It was the last tango for David Arquette after the 40-year-old actor was dismissed from Dancing With the Stars.
"This whole thing has been incredible. I've loved it," he said after learning he would be leaving. "I came here to get to know more about myself, face my fears, entertain people, (give) America a chance to get to know me better and learn how to dance."
Host Tom Bergeron said: "You've achieved all those goals."
David earned 47 points out of 60 for his two dances: a cha-cha that impressed the judges and a team tango that did not.
Judge Carrie Ann Inaba said David's cha-cha showed growth. "Your improvement is phenomenal," she said.
But the team dance failed to come together. Judge Len Goodman said the bulk of the routine "was a disaster".
David finished three points ahead of last-place dancer Nancy Grace, who relied on her fans to keep her in the contest.
She will return to dance again, along with Ricki Lake, JR Martinez, Rob Kardashian and Hope Solo.
Justin Bieber also appeared on the episode, where he performed his song Never Say Never and unveiled a track from his new Christmas album, Under The Mistletoe. The teen star sang Fa La La with Boyz II Men.
