An American pastime v. twinkle toes

This final note today, which to be honest, does kind of have me scratching my head and wondering about the American television-watching public. Game 5 of the World Series last night did pretty well in the Nielsens. Beat Monday Night Football pretty handily. But -- and this is the head scratching part -- it lost out to "Dancing with the Stars." Dancing. With the stars.

Now, if it had been "Project Runway," that I could understand.
