Home and Away and Dancing With The Stars took the bikkies on a quiet night, as watchers were robbed of the opportunity to see the geeks strutting their stuff in Las Vegas.

Channel Seven elected to show a double episode of Dancing With The Stars (DWTS) last night, pushing Beauty and the Geek to next week when normal service will resume.

The move worked for Channel Seven with DWTS taking out fifth spot on the schedule, attracting an audience of 898,000 metro overnight viewers on the night, just behind its channel mate Home and Away which performed strongly to post 900,000.

Meanwhile King's Cross ER managed to build on its audience of 683,000 last week, adding 26,000 this week to post 709,000.

The preliminary top 20 programs for 30 October from OzTAM.

The ABC and Network Ten had strong performers on the time-shifting front, with OzTAM data revealing Ten's Madam Secretary added another 136,000 on its overnight figure of 525,000, a 25% jump.

Meanwhile ABC duo Upper Middle Bogan and It's a Date also performed strongly on the time-shifting front, adding 19% and 26% respectively.

Seven's DWTS double-act won it the night, pulling in a 31.5% share against Nine's 27.1%.

Meanwhile on the overnight figures Network Ten pulled in an 18.3% share to the ABC's 16.8%.
