HungHBO's new series 'Hung' drew in 2.8 million viewers Sunday night. This marks the network's highest premiere for a new series since 'John From Cincinnati' in 2007. But we have faith that, unlike that disaster of a series, 'Hung' can keep it up -- its ratings, of course. [Hollywood Reporter]

BET AwardsSunday night's BET Awards, which featured multiple tributes to the late Michael Jackson, earned 10.7 million viewers, making it 2009's most watched cable program so far this year. The show edged out the previous record holder, 'Jon & Kate Plus 8,' which had a 10.6 million audience earlier last month. Perhaps Jon and Kate's decision to step away from the media is kicking in.
