White powder threat to 'Dancing With the Stars' likely a hoax

September 29, 2011 |  6:50 am

Cbs Officials said the white powder sent to the studios of "Dancing With the Stars" was harmless and likely a hoax.

The powder was discovered in an envelope sent to CBS Television City in the Fairfax district. It was addressed to "Dancing With the Stars," one of the shows taped there.

The powder was reported about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at the CBS studios in the 7800 block of Beverly Boulevard.

It is the second time in as many months that a letter containing an unknown powder was sent to the studios. Earlier, a similar substance was found in a threatening letter sent to late-night host Craig Ferguson.
