Drew Lachey vs. the Olympians

NBC’s quest for ratings gold with the Winter Olympics just got more difficult. Not only has “American Idol” continued to draw millions from NBC’s prime-time telecasts, and "Survivor" and "Dancing with the Stars" too, but now ABC will announce the “Dancing with the Stars” winner on Sunday, Feb. 26, against the Winter Olympics closing ceremony.
Lachey is one of four celebs dancing tonight (8 p.m., Chs 9, 22) in the semi-finals. We’ll find out 8-9 p.m. Friday if he advances to the final competition next Thursday, Feb. 23. (He should, since he’s been first or second each week.)
But instead of revealing results next Friday, they will be held until Sunday. ABC’s “Dancing” results will be stretched into a two-hour show (8-10 p.m.), against NBC’s Olympics closing ceremony (8-11 p.m.).

Get into Action
Don’t forget about CET’s online “Action Auction” this month. The first phase of bidding closes today for some items at Only 10 days are left to bid on tons of other stuff. The auction closes 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26.

CBS News
Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ new CBS sitcom, “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” premieres 9:30 p.m. Monday, March 13. CBS again will try comedies at 8-9 p.m. Wednesday, with “Out of Practice” at 8 p.m. March 22, followed by Jenna Elfman’s “Courting Alex” at 8:30 p.m. Expect all three to be heavily promoted during the NCAA basketball tournament in March.
“The Unit,” CBS’ drama about a new super-secret strike force, will debut at 9 p.m. Tuesday, March 7. Stars include Dennis Haysbert, Scott Foley and Regina Taylor.

How's "Dancing" been holding up against Survivor? Too bad there's not a local-link for Exile Island, but the mixed couples sand-wrestling challenge for immunity last night was fun to watch.

No kidding, I thought I was watching female UFC sand wrestling or something. Get UFC president Dana White on the phone! I see an opportunity for a spin off to the Ultimate Fighter.
