Los Angeles ratings for "Twin Peaks" reflected the major-market average as the show earned 32% of viewers. But in its first half hour, despite a 29% share, it was beaten in Los Angeles by the Fox TV sitcom "Married . . . With Children," which won 34% of the audience and was the No. 1 show here last week, while "Twin Peaks" was a strong seventh.
Anchored by Kyle MacLachlan as an offbeat, unlikely FBI agent, the debut of "Twin Peaks" included actors Michael Onktean, Joan Chen, Piper Laurie, Peggy Lipton, Richard Beymer and Russ Tamblyn amid an attractive overall cast.
SPEAKING OF MOLLY: And we always are, right? Well, "[Molly Dodd]'s" new episodes on Lifetime cable got a grand kickoff Friday with a behind-the-scenes special. Creator Jay Tarses said star Blair Brown "wishes she was Molly Dodd." An actor quoted Tarses as saying it's a show "for people who can tie their own shoe-laces." A little smug, but that's all right. Oh yeah, Molly's pregnant this season. Said a writer: "We decided Molly should never be alone again."
