Fox hit pay dirt with last night's Joe Millionaire finale. The two-hour climax during which Fox awarded lovebirds Evan and Zora $1 million delivered the best ratings for a night of entertainment programming in the network's history. Nearly 35 million viewers watched the former construction worker struggle to find the right words to explain away his $50 million lie. (Spend some of that dough on communication training, dude!) Next Monday, Fox airs a special hourlong post-Joe Millionaire in which viewers will learn why Evan and Zora eventually broke up, um... I mean, what their future holds.
