TV Ratings: "Dancing With The Stars" Still Light On Its Feet

Now that Mediaweek is back from a sojourn at the TV conventions, overnight ratings are back in action. On Friday, "Dancing With The Stars" was the big winner as Master P finally exited. (Your parents, however, watched CBS and "Ghost Whisperer," "Close To Home" and "Numb3rs.") Saturday was dead because TV networks can't be bothered to put on original programming. (Shouldn't the new CW take advantage of that?) And Sunday was a repeat for "Desperate Housewives," giving "Grey's Anatomy" a chance to shine on its own. And in its 234th season, "The Simpsons" continues to shine. It was Fox's number one show for the night, hitting some 9 million viewers.
