BADA-BIG!

Domestic strife paid off big time for HBO Sunday night. The season finale of The Sopranos — which featured Carmela kicking Tony out of the house — attracted a whopping 12.5 million viewers and whacked its competition on the major broadcast networks. It was the mob drama's second most-watched episode ever; the show's season premiere in September drew 13.4 million fans. And despite complaints that the fourth season was a bore, ratings were actually up 22 percent over Season Three. By the way, have I mentioned how freakin' amazing Edie Falco was during those fight scenes with James Gandolfini? Well, she was. Forget Emmy, she deserves an Oscar!
