Yamaguchi Appears To Ice A Win
Figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi seemed assured of winning the Dancing With the Stars competition Monday night after she received a perfect score of 30 from the show's judges. After her cha-cha performance, judge Carrie Ann Inaba told her, "Kristi, it's ladies night. You won that hands down." Noting that men have won the contest for the past four seasons, Inaba said that they are generally "crowd-pleasers, and it's very difficult to keep up with that. But not tonight girl." The show received the highest ratings of the night -- by far -- despite season or series finales of several shows. Dancing earned a 12.3 rating and a 20 share at 8:00 p.m.. The second-place show, Fox's Bones, drew half those numbers, a 6.3/10. Fox's House moved into first place at 9:00 with a 9.9/15, while CBS took the lead at 10:00 as CSI: Miami posted a 10.3/17.
