Another day, another show courting Paula Abdul. CBS is ordering up a new dance show for next season called “Got To Dance,” a British reality show which is open to all ages, all genres.

And “Idol” still beat “Dancing With the Stars” this week with its painfully bad Billboard No. 1’s top 11 show Tuesday. Preliminary numbers had DWTS edging out “Idol” 23.9 million (its final figure) to 23.8 million (”Idol” early figure). Revised, “Idol” actually ended up with 24.2 million on Tuesday night. The show also finished well ahead of DWTS with 8.4/23 ratings/share for 18-49 year olds.
