ABC still dances on top Monday nights! Though Heroes is waning in total viewers, it takes more than its fair share of the 18-49 demo. Not so good for the show Heroes leads into -- Journeyman, which I confess I've watched because it's filmed here in San Francisco. Yesterday's episode had some scenes filmed in my neighborhood. Nobody cares though, it finished last.
Big Bang had a little bit of uptick, but I'm not optimistic. I watched the first two episodes and beautiful though Kaley C. is, the show is pretty lame and didn't leave me wanting to watch a 3rd episode. Two and a Half Men did better than Heroes in viewers but is down about 25% over last year's numbers. And Heroes crushed it in terms of 18-49. Time to rename CBS to GBS (Geriatric, Geezer, Gosh darn old -- take your pick).

We'll find out tonight whether my 99 votes and Mark Cubans "Save Me" campaign on Facebook made a difference. Cubes deserves to advance. Watching Wayne Newton was more painful (and less fun) than watching Joe Torre grimace in pinstripes, perhaps for the last time.
