WQED CHANGES: "Arthur's Perfect Christmas," which is listed in tomorrow's TV Week as airing Monday at 8 p.m. on WQED/WQEX, will instead air tomorrow at 7 and 10 a.m. and Dec. 24 at 7 p.m. WQED made the last-minute change yesterday.
Another last-minute change was the decision not to air the documentary "Finding Lucy" about Lucille Ball. It was scheduled for tomorrow night and is reviewed in tomorrow's Sunday Magazine. No new air date has been scheduled.
"QUEER AS FOLK" RATINGS: Another debut this past Sunday, Showtime's Pittsburgh-set gay drama "Queer as Folk," was watched by 1.6 million viewers.
Daily Variety reports that's 80 percent higher than the ratings Showtime achieved in that time slot a year ago and double the network's current prime-time average. But that was still fewer people than showed up for HBO's rerun of "The Sopranos" pilot at 8 p.m., which drew 2.8 million viewers. HBO is carried in about twice as many homes as Showtime.
