According to national viewer- ship data released Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research, Fox won the ratings crown in total viewers last week, with six nights devoted to baseball. Fox’sexecu- tives pointedout that the games have propelled the network for the first time in its 17-year history to the No. 1 spot in the season so far among adults aged 18 to 49, the demographic that advertisers pay the most to reach. Fox has traditionally used the playoffs and World Series to promote its delayed fall lineup. But adeluge of commercials failed to generate much interest in Monday’s premiereof “The Next Joe Millionaire,” a sequel to last season’s hugely successful unscripted series, and “Skin,” a Romeo-and-Juliet themed drama set against the backdrop of politics and pornography. “The Next Joe Millionaire” finished infifth placein its 8 p.m. time period, averaging 6.6 million viewers, while “Skin” wound up in fourth at 9 p.m., with an average of 6.4. million viewers. “We’re disappointed, absolutely,” said Fox Entertainment President Gail Berman Tuesday. “We’re obviously experiencing a taste of what the other networks are going through when it comes to launching new shows.” Berman said the new “Joe Millionaire” “clearly is no longer the phenomenon it was.” The initial show featured a construction worker posing as a millionaire as he wooed several single women. The new version features a cowboy also posing as a wealthy man to several European women who were unaware of the first show. Saying she feels that that “The Next Joe Millionaire” will eventually catch on with younger audiences, Berman added that Fox would concentrate more on exposing “Skin” to more viewers. Fox will repeat the first “Skin” episode this Friday, and then show repeats of each Monday episode on Thursdays at 9 p.m. The network used the “double- down” strategy in launching “The O.C.”, which began modestly but grew to become a bright spot for Fox before it temporarily exited to make way for the playoffs and now the World Series, between the New York Yankees and the Florida Marlins. —Greg Braxton For Fox, baseball is a hit, new shows a miss SERIES North to Alaska: California dreamer Huell Howser continues his exploration of the 50th state on “Alaska Week” (7:30 p.m. KCET).

Yet it’s sad to say that because of those events, these two documentaries on KCET tonight will receive more notice than they otherwise might. They deserve to be seen on their own merits, not solely through the prism of the war on terrorism. Starting at 8 p.m., the hour- long National Geographic special “Inside Mecca” looks at the hajj, the sacred pilgrimage that is required of all Muslims who can manage it at least once in their lives. Producer-director Anisa Mehdi’sfilm follows three of the 2 million people who trek to Mecca annually: an Irish-born educator from Austin, Texas; a well-heeled businessman from Malaysia; and a radio commentator from South Africa. The three each endure hardships, whether physical discomfort, prejudice or classism. Though some elements of hajj put pilgrims on an equal footing, others lend themselves to VIP concessions that have become big business in Saudi Arabia. And though 80% of Muslims today live outside the Arab world, a green-eyed Irishwoman and a black South African still come under suspicion from some fellow believers. Exactly why someone appearing to be from the West might arouse mistrust among the Arab world is addressed in tonight’s second documentary, at 9 p.m. It singles out Britain’s reneging on a deal to give Arabs self-rule as a defining moment in how they perceive the West. Much like “Inside Mecca,” “Lawrence of Arabia” tells both a personal story and a much larger tale. On one level, it goes behind the mystique surrounding T.E. Lawrence, the British army officer who led a band of Arab tribes against the Turks during World War I. Anyone familiar with the 1962 feature film of the same name should be intrigued to see newsreel footage of the real Lawrence and learn some of his life’s titillating details. The more important aspect of filmmaker James Hawes’docu- mentary, however, is not about Lawrence or even his military exploits. It’s what happened after World War I. Though Lawrence worked tirelessly to make good on promises of an Arab homeland, the powers that be — Britain, France and the U.S. — had another plan in mind. Did it taint Arab relationships with the West, as the experts here suggest? No matter how one answers the question, Lawrence himself could scarcely live with the decision.
