Who Dey! Who Dey!

Who Dey! Who dey think gonna beat them "Desperate Housewives"... Well, the Bengals didn't beat the Jags Sunday night, but at least they won the ratings. According to local overnight Nielsen meters, the Bengals drew a 26.1 rating (230,512 TV home), or 35% of the audience for ESPN's simulcast on Channel 12.
Channel 9, which had first dibs on the game from its two-year ESPN deal, was second Sunday night with "Desperate Housewives." It averaged a 20.2 rating (178,406 TV homes) and a 25% share. The Yankees-Angels game on Fox scored only a 4.4 rating (38,860 TV homes), fourth behind Channel 5's NBC lineup of "The West Wing" and "Law & Order: CI."

Make a Wish
I hear that a crew from NBC's new "Three Wishes" may be in the area shooting stories this week. If you see them -- or host Amy Grant -- email me at

Maybe those who put money on the Linz kids to win "The Amazing Race" know something. The Linz family, after a backroads shortcut around a Washington DC area traffic jam, finished last week in second place. They had been last at the start of the show. The third show airs at 9 pm on Ch 12.....
"Nova" takes a dry, unphotogenic topic -- Albert Einstein's theory of relativity -- and makes it into an interesting historical drama with dramatic re-creations on "Einstein's Big Idea" today (8-10 p.m., Chs 48, 16 and Insight Cable Ch 23). Miami University history prof Judith Zinsser appears near the end of the first hour to explain that French scientist Emili du Chatelet should be remembered for more than being Voltaire's lover.
