Boy, the ratings reports actually are interesting these days. Wednesday night's premiere of Fox's Skating with Celebrities apparently was watched by all of the Others and then some, drawing 18.7 million samplers just 600,000 fewer folk than turned into ABC's new Lost eppy. (Skating actually bested Lost during its first half-hour!) American Idol, meanwhile, didn't quite match its gargantuan, mammoth and gonzo numbers from Tuesday, but still saw 31.4 million "music" fans tune in.
