'DWTS' Premiere: Jaleel 'Urkel' White Ties for High Score (Video)

"Family Matters" star Jaleel White was more Stefan Urquelle than Steve Urkel on the season 14 premiere of "Dancing With the Stars" Monday, wowing the judges with his foxtrot and tying singer Katherine Jenkins for the night's high score.

White and professional partner Kym Johnson, as well as Jenkins and partner Mark Ballas,  scored 26 points from the judges.

White and Johnson's foxtrot to "The Way You Look Tonight" led judge Len Goodman to say of the episode, "Without a doubt, this is the best first show of any season."
