(Undated) — Jaleel White is drawing the most support following the 14th season premiere of “Dancing With the Stars.” The former “Family Matters” star leads the way in an poll, with 50-percent saying he and partner Kym Johnson turned in the best performance Monday night. However, Cuban actor William Levy also made a big impression. Forty-percent liked the telenovela actor and partner Cheryl Burke the best. Just ten-percent are giving the nod to classical singer Katherine Jenkins, who is teamed up with Mark Ballas. The survey only covered the top three couples. Jaleel and Katherine ended the night tied with 26 points from the judges, which is the highest premiere night score ever on the show. William is in second place on the leaderboard with 24 points.

Twelve stars are competing on the new season of “Dancing With the Stars,” which debuted on ABC Monday night. All 12 will return to dance again on next Monday’s episode. The first elimination will be part of the first results show of the season airing next Tuesday.
