We're on the brink of a Rockies vs. Indians World Series. Though the game 4 ratings for the ALCS compare favorably with last years NLCS Game 5 between the Mets and the Cardinals. Mark Cuban survived another night on Dancing with the Stars and though I think he can hang in for another few weeks as he wins over fans, there are two contestants who are great dancers (Sabrina and the Indy car driver) and I will be surprised to see my dream final of Cuban vs. Seymour.
Matt Lauer doesn't draw with NBC's Dateline Special. Cane's ratings are down (but perhaps the DVR usage will save it), Cavemen and Carpooler continue to blow.
We never have much good to say about CW, but Beauty and the Geek and Reaper are picking up a little steam.
