La Lohan will soon be making her debut on Lifetime. Also today in showbiz news: Homeland and Dexter are bigger than ever, a '90s band favorite gets her own reality show, and Kelly Bundy heads back to SNL.
Lifetime: Television For Thinking About While You Get a CAT Scan has announced that it will debut its new Elizabeth Taylor biopic Liz & Dick, this is the one that stars future Hollywood Square Lindsay Lohan, on Sunday November 25th. Then, at long last, will the world get to see what Lindsay Lohan 2.0 is all about. Or is this Lindsay Lohan, like, 6.0? Who can really keep count at this point. It's like the waves of feminism. Nobody knows which one we're on. Ha, yes, Lindsay Lohan's acting career is exactly like the evolution of feminist thought. Just ask Gloria Steinem. Actually don't ask her. Definitely do not go up to Gloria Steinem and ask her about Lindsay Lohan. That will not go well. But yeah. Lindsay. Liz & Dick. 11/25. Get into it. [Deadline]
Last night's big Showtime premiere bonanza, which brought Homeland and Dexter rip-roaringly back to the airwaves, was a boon for the network ratings-wise, with both shows improving upon old records. Homeland, freshly flush with Emmy wins, posted numbers 60 percent higher than its series premiere last year, also besting every other episode of the first season. Dexter, meanwhile, had its highest premiere ever, pretty impressive for a show in its seventh season. Though, let's all keep in mind that we're talking about premium cable here. Dexter had 2.4 million viewers while Homeland only had about 1.75 million. So ratings success is all pretty relative, is what we're saying. Those are like Big Bang Theory syndicated afternoon rerun ratings. Just keep that in mind, everyone. Let's not have anyone's britches get too big. [Deadline]
