Ratings: Prison Opens, K-Ville Gets Big, Easy Numbers

Prison Break by Bill Matlock/Fox, K-Ville by Rebecca Brenneman/Fox

Set the fall-premiere ratings loose! Matt is officially back from Emmysland, here offering a snapshot look at Monday's two launches, both on Fox:• Prison Break opened Season 3 with an audience of 7.4 million total viewers. That's a 20 percent drop from its sophomore-season debut. I blame the unsightly Bellick, stumbling around in his filthy drawers. (No offense intended, Wade.)• At 9 pm, the series premiere of K-Ville welcomed 8.96 mil to its version of post-Katrina N.O. That's about 400K better than Vanished did as PB's lead-out a year ago. K-Ville bested almost all of the (mostly repeat) competition, save for CBS' rowdy Men. read more


New Orleans: Sept. 1, 2005. The aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Anthony Anderson's Marlin Boulet patrols the flooded streets of the city with his partner, Charlie. When they're back on solid ground, Charlie deserts him.Sept. 1, 2007: Boulet is a changed man. He's on the edge of a breakdown and doesn't mind bending and breaking rules while he works his cases. His new partner, Cole Hauser's Trevor Cobb, is a bit of an enigma. Boulet can't understand why a Yankee, just back from a tour in Khandar with the Army Rangers, would choose to work in K-Ville.The case: Boulet's neighbor is killed at a charity event for the 9th Ward, which Boulet and Cobb are working. They pursue the shooter, first on foot then on wheels, but the chase ends at the Riverfront Casino where they find the car abandoned. When drive-by shooters tear up the next charity event, once again organized by local Christine Dubois, the team gets suspicious. No one was shot so they think it was more to scare people than to hurt... read more

Exclusive: O.C. Babe Returns to Fox!

Cole Hauser and Amanda Righetti by Skip Bolen/Fox

Someone over at Fox really likes Amanda Righetti. The onetime O.C. starlet — who followed up her stint in Newport Beach with back-to-back gigs on Fox's North Shore and Reunion — is joining the cast of the net's new drama series K-Ville. She'll be playing the recurring role of A.J., a potential love interest for Cole Hauser. As we'll learn in the Sept. 24 episode, the two characters share a common link. To say more than that would ruin the big twist at the end of the Sept. 17 premiere. And as you know, I don't ruin. Spoil, yes. Ruin, no. read more

Kevin Reilly: From NBC to Fox in Six Weeks

Kevin Reilly by Maury Phillips/WireImage.com

Wow, that didn’t take long.It hasn’t even been two months (May 14, to be exact) since Kevin Reilly stood astride the Radio City Music Hall stage as NBC’s Entertainment president to present the Peacock’s fall lineup to advertisers at the upfront. That was then, this is now.In the interim, Reilly was bounced by NBC brass in favor of wunderkind agent-turned-producer Ben Silverman. And Reilly, as rumored, has rebounded with unusual agility and speed at Fox, where he is being reunited with his former FX captain Peter Liguori, who’s being promoted up the ladder to Fox Broadcasting Company chairman while Reilly assumes the Entertainment president reins.It’s enough to make the head spin, and to make those of us who’ve felt we’ve seen it all anticipate Fox’s days at the ongoing critics' press tour. (Fox is scheduled for Sunday and Monday, July 22 and 23.) Will Reilly now be pitching the virtues of new Fox shows like New Amsterdam, Back to You and ... read more

Fox Keeps Things Stable - and Welcomes Back Kelsey

Past experience has shown that it's wise to write down the new Fox schedule in pencil. There's always a change or two (or three) by the time the fall rolls around. But stability was the message for the 2007-08 season: Prison Break, 24, House, Bones, American Idol, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? and the Sunday animation block will all return in their same time periods next season. Sure, Fox always falters when the season begins, but the network is about to finish No. 1 in viewers aged 18-49 for the third season in a row.As far as new shows, Fox is trying to regain the edge it seemed to abandon in this past season's development (which was dismal). The most promising attempt is on Monday at 9 pm with K-Ville, starring Anthony Anderson and Cole Hauser as two cops in post-Katrina New Orleans. We were puzzled when a reporter asked entertainment president Peter Liguori if doing such a show was exploiting a disaster. What should a contemporary show filmed in New Orleans be about? Mardi ... read more

Live Fox Upfront Coverage

Anthony Anderson in K-ville by Rebecca Brenneman/Fox

3:50: Fox upfront. The words still send shivers down my spine. As you recall, the network's presentation last year was widely considered to be the single most grueling upfront in the history of upfrontmanship. The post-traumatic stress still hasn't worn off.3:51: Good news. Fox has clearly learned from their mistakes. In stark contrast to last year, the check-in process was easy-breezy. Even better, the air conditioning is working! Now if we can wrap this thing up in under two hours, almost all will be forgiven.4:01: I'm in complete denial about the VM thing, BTW. Just thought I'd share. Ooooh, the show is starting... with a 24 parody!4:05: Jack Bauer urges Fox president Peter Liguori to keep this year's presentation under an hour! LOL!4:06: They're bringing all their stars out onstage. Fox always has a good talent turnout at these things. 4:08: Well, most years they have a good turnout. The only Prison Breaker in attendance is Sucre (Amaury Nolasco)!4:09: No Kiefer Sutherland, but ... read more
