UK TV News
I don't often talk about UK TV shows before they come to the US. But I've been keeping an eye on the ratings for two. The new launch of "Robin Hood" held up well against the season premiere of "The X Factor." (That's the UK talent show that supplanted "Pop Idol" and proven a powerhouse in the ratings.) "Robin Hood" arrives here in January on BBC America. And the latest and apparently final "Prime Suspect" starring Dame Helen Mirren has garnered excellent reviews and pulled very good ratings for the first of its two parts. That one comes to PBS in November.
