Alphabet soup you say? Well, the TV world isn't exactly the military, but we like our acronyms. Now, on to this weeks Nielsen ratings. Most notable is Monday's "Dancing With the Stars" again topped "American Idol," which again won in their head-to-head night on Tuesday. You know a show's a success when averaging about 25 million viewers is considered "down," but by most accounts this isn't Idols most compelling season. Why is that? Comments welcome. And "Lost," by the way, finished the week 20th, with 9.5 million viewers. What is it that Desmond has to do for the island? Don't tell me, still haven't watched it on Tivo.
