I'M BAFFLED. VIEWERSHIP IS ON THE rise despite the fact that we are mired in a wretchedly lackluster TV year. And it's not getting any better in the prime-time trenches. After a drab fall rollout, we've stumbled into a singularly uneventful November Sweeps period. Can you believe the lame projects that the networks are promoting as "big" events this month? A Siegfried & Roy special? Cancel my dinner reservations with Letterman. Scarlett, the miniseries? (See review.) Frankly, my dears, I don't give a fig.
