Two step, Tango, Waltz. It’s Tuesday night and Dancing With
the Stars is on. Seven’s the winner, despite a dip of 80,000 viewers on the week
before. Nine’s Tuesday night was fruitless, especially as in some TV guides it
had advertised a new episode of CSI, but screened a repeat. The new episode of
CSI New York did just okay at 9.30pm with 1.16 million and was easily beaten by
All Saints on Seven with 1.348 million. Ten did well with the new series,
Brainiac, a sort of ‘Experiments Busters’ program, which attracted 1.091 million.
Thanks to that, the new Simpsons and solid outings by Neighbours, Rove and a
Simpsons repeat saw Ten win the 16 to 39 age group, which is what it’s after.
Seven’s Home and Away continues to outperform Temptation, which was watched by

Seven News and Today Tonight won easily nationally and in

Melbourne. Nine News and ACA won Brisbane. Seven’s programs were the winners in
Adelaide and Perth: a comprehensive win to both.
Seven with 33.7%, from Nine on 27.8%, Ten with 20.8%,
the ABC was down on 12.7% and SBS had 4.9%. Seven won Sydney, Melbourne,
Adelaide and Perth, Nine won Brisbane.
That’s Tuesday night and so long as Dancing With The Stars
remains popular and on TV, it will be Seven’s night. Tonight Ten will do better
thanks to House. The big interest will be on McLeod’s Daughters when and how
the gradual emergence of much stronger male characters occurs, a big switch for
Nine which is trying to pump some UST into McLeod’s. The ABC’s Spicks and Specks
should also do well, while Seven’s Blue Heelers isn’t on death row as
discussions continue with Southern Star about its 2006 future. But tonight it
will struggle, especially as Nine has, according to some guides, new episodes of
CSI Miami and Without a Trace. We should
know Friday just what Blue Heelers’s future will be in
