Jason Lee Jason Lee

Though its lead-in, The Biggest Loser, drew an audience of less than 8 million, Tuesday's debut of My Name Is Earl propelled NBC to a big victory in the second night of the TV season: The Jason Lee comedy collared 15.3 million viewers and a 16 share in the all-important 18-to-49 demo. Pretty amazing for a show without tiki torches, castaways or Felicity Huffman.
