Dancing With The Stars
Overwhelmed by all those two-hour reality shows? You're not alone, and even the networks admit that it's a lot to watch. But they still benefit from those supersized series — so expect to see even more shows go the expansion route.
Two-hour episodes used to be rare, and reserved for special milestones. But what was once a stunt is now the norm, as two-hour series like Dancing with the Stars, The Sing-Off, The Biggest Loser and The X-Factor all take up loads of on-air real estate — sometimes eating up as much as four hours of programming a week (if lengthy results shows and recap specials are included).

Pan Am lost some altitude in Week 2, recruiting 7.75 million viewers — less than three-quarters of its premiere audience.
The ABC program, which took off with 10.87 million aboard, scored a 2.5 rating among 18-to-49-year-olds Sunday night, a 19 percent fall from last week's 3.1, Nielsen overnights showed.
This week we came together in South Jordan, Utah to help the Gomez family, a single mother Jessica and her children, Jonah and Ellie. Jonah is fighting two blood diseases, one of them being sickle cell, and for a seven-year-old boy it's really taxing and it wears him down. He has to have oxygen all the time and he can't keep up with his friends. So, it's important that he has a home where the air is clean, and that he has access to oxygen whenever he needs it. One day he will need a bone marrow transplant and it's really important that we find the match as soon as possible because you don't know when that day's going to come.
ABC's Pan Am enjoyed a smooth if not soaring takeoff with 10.87 million aboard, scoring a 3.1 rating among 18-to-49-year-olds to land second place against CSI: Miami's 10th season premiere.

This week's story takes us to Fayetteville, N.C. where we met up with a woman by the name of Barbara Marshall. Barbara Marshall is a veteran of the Navy and she has seen a problem develop over the years with our women veterans coming back from deployment and then finding themselves homeless, without jobs and in really tough situations. Barbara has decided to take it upon herself to help these women and their children by bringing them into the Steps and Stages Jubilee House and give them a chance to get back on their feet.

Survivor: Redemption Island
The granddaddy of all network reality shows might be showing further signs of creakiness, but Survivor: Redemption Island's finale and afterparty averaged 12.5 million viewers Sunday night.
The three-hour combo, starting at 8/7c, posted a 3.8 rating among 18-to-49-year-olds, helping CBS easily win the night. The season-ender declined compared with the previous season's finale in December (13.6 million, and 4.1 demo rating). But while the show's audience has dwindled in recent years, the TV staple still manages to finish in the top 15, if not the top 10. It consistently attracted more than 10 million people for its usual Wednesday airing this season.
