THE MOLE ALIVE AND KICKING
Don't count out The Mole
just yet. While CBS's Survivor
and Fox's Temptation Island
are getting all the attention, ABC's reality show has quietly developed into a modest ratings hit for the alphabet network. In its fourth outing Tuesday, the series delivered its best ratings since its premiere last month. Even more impressive, The Mole
is drawing 40 percent more adults age 18-34 than Who Wants to Be a Millionaire
did when it aired in that timeslot. Meanwhile, Fox's Temptation Island
attracted its largest audience to date last night according to preliminary ratings data.
