Want to know why you didn't get to see the Minnesota Vikings play the New York Giants today? Here's the reason.

TV Talk: High Interest in Law & Order: LA, Low Numbers for HBO

Law & Order: Los Angeles-Which new shows are you looking forward to checking out? According to a TiVo poll, Law & Order: Los Angeles and Hawaii Five-0 are the most-anticipated programs of the upcoming season.

-When is an Oscar nominee not considered “famous enough”? When her name is Carey Mulligan. The Wall Street 2 star says she would love to be in Glee, but she’s apparently not recognizable enough for a cameo.

-Has HBO lost some of its appeal? Despite shows like True Blood, Entourage and Hung, the cable channel’s second quarter audience numbers were the lowest in four years. New series Boardwalk Empire begins this Sunday.

-Sunday Night Football, though, is doing just fine for NBC. This weekend’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins scored the best overnight ratings for any opener—on a Sunday or Monday—in 13 years.
