American Idol expands to two hours for live performances from the 12 female finalists. (Tomorrow night you see the men and Thursday gives the voting results.) That's the top event of the night, despite the Olympics featuring top American women competing in ice skating, usually the premiere event of the Winter Games. It's not even clear whether they'll beat Idol. But I think both shows will do well; there's plenty of room for two hit series on the same night. CBS continues to hide with reruns -- the biggest blunder of the Olympics, considering how well Fox and ABC have done. ABC counters with Tom Selleck geust-starring on Boston Legal as Candice Bergen's ex-husband. Late night, Letterman has the cast of Jersey Boys performing and Matthew Fox of Lost.
