There’s a new sheriff in town and his name is Weeds. The drug-dealing-themed TV show starring Mary-Louise Parker, has broken Showtime records by pulling in 1.3 million viewers on Monday. The numbers made the show the most-watched show in the history of the channel. ‘Secret Diary of a Call Girl‘–a new show following the life of a London prostitute, set another record on its series premiere: the most watched premiere in the books since 2004. Who knew drugs and hookers could be so engaging? [THR]
