"Game of Thrones" won't be won any time soon. HBO announced Tuesday it has renewed the fantasy hit for a fifth and sixth season. With Sunday's Season 4 premiere scoring HBO's biggest ratings since 2007's finale of "The Sopranos," it only makes sense the cable network would renew the show. Season 4 opened at 8 p.m. Sunday, averaging 6.6 million total viewers, according to Nielsen. That "Sopranos" finale drew 11.9 million viewers. "'Game of Thrones' is a phenomenon like no other," said Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming.

Lifetime's "Drew Peterson: Untouchable" movie generated record viewership, the network said Monday, averaging about 5.8 million total viewers when it aired Jan. 21. I wonder how many of them made watching it a drinking game. It'd be easy to do. Each time Rob Lowe, playing Peterson, squints, you take a gulp. Each time his accent turns to Wiconsin instead of Chicago, you take a sip (you'd be drunk too fast if you were gulping). Each time the movie "convicts" him, you pick a friend to do a shot.

" It airs at 9 p.m. Jan. 13 on IFC, but you can see it at the network's web site already.

"Helix" star Kyra Zagorsky didn't know much about her character when filming began in Montreal, but she kind of like it that way. "I had to discover everything and that was, I think, part of the fun in being on the show," the actress said during a recent conference call with writers. "I just realized ... 'I have no idea what's to come, but I have to just trust that I'm her and start working with her.'" The "her" Zagorsky refers to is Dr. Julia Walker, the tough, smart researcher she plays in Syfy's new hit that infected 1.82 million total viewers in its Jan. 10 debut.
