Prison Break Successful

Fox may have another breakout hit drama on its hands.

The two-hour premiere of Prison Break, the first series debut of the season, brought in an average of 10.5 million viewers on Monday. Even against limited (OK, weak) competition, this ain't bad at all, especially for a summer premiere.

ER Signs Freak

Actor-comedian John Leguizamo will effectively replace departing Noah Wyle on NBC's ER this fall.

Leguizamo will initially appear in 12 episodes, starting as a recurring character.

The network hopes its top-rated drama can continue to hold off CBS' Without a Trace for three more seasons.

Rome Built In A Night

Rome conquered much of its competition for HBO Sunday.

The expensive spectacle drew 3.8 million total viewers to its premiere. In fact, it was the most highly rated program on the channel since the fourth-season premiere of "Six Feet Under" in June 2004, and drew almost the same amount of viewers as last week's finale of Six Feet Under".

Of course, its Sopranos lead-in didn't hurt.

Enough with Kelly Clarkson, Already!

It just needed to be said.

Please, go away.
