"In the reality TV business, bikini-clad temptresses on a tropical island are a better sell than paranoid teammates looking for a saboteur in Europe. That's the lesson to take from last week's ratings for Fox's 'Temptation Island' and ABC's 'The Mole.' Fox's controversial series, which sent photogenic singles to an island off Belize to tempt four committed couples, drew 17.6 million viewers in its second installment, Nielsen Media Research said Tuesday."
"'The Mole' drew 11.5 million viewers, a 16 percent drop from its first week. The reality game show sent a team of American competitors to Europe, where they try to figure out which of the players is secretly plotting against the others."
