Cameron Wake and Tom Brady
Monday Night Football had a big night in the ratings, just like Tom Brady on the field.
The regular season debut of the venerable franchise on ESPN decimated the competition on both cable and broadcast television, attracting 14.57 million viewers for the NFL game between the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins and a 6.3 rating among 18-to-49-year-olds. Brady made the hot South Florida night hotter, passing for 517 yards — merely the fifth-best in league history. And with the promise of more excitement like that, ESPN is sure to lure solid numbers throughout the season.
George and Cindy Anthony, Dr. Phil
This September marks the first time in 25 years without The Oprah Winfrey Show, and in the battle to assume the Oprah throne, Dr. Phil has fired the opening salvo.

Rosie O'Donnell may be taking over Oprah Winfrey's Chicago studio to launch her talk show, but she's not trying to be the next Oprah.
Appearing in front of reporters Friday during OWN's fall TV preview session, O'Donnell said her appeal is very different from Oprah's. "I think the reason for my previous success is that I'm really not aspirational [like Oprah is]," she said. "I'm inspirational... in the sense that people at home so related to me that they felt they could be at the table with me and Madonna."
"I really am more the audience," she continued. "No one at home is going, 'I wish I could be Rosie O'Donnell, an overweight lesbian who yells too much."
That said, The Rosie Show, which will premiere Monday, Oct. 10 at 7/6c, will be quite different from The Oprah Winfrey Show. "My job is mostly to be entertaining and funny, which is what I'm hoping to do," she said.
Here are seven things to know about the show before its debut:
