Tune In: Original Cable Programming

No. of subscribers: 14 million

Network topper: Matt Blank

Programming topper: Robert Greenblatt

Top originals: Weeds, Dexter, The L Word, Brotherhood

The skinny: Pay cablers live or die on buzz, and thanks to entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt, the CBS Corp.-owned network finally has some. The creepy “Dexter” made a slew of top-10 lists and seems likely to snag at least a couple of Emmy noms this summer. Emmy-nominated laffer “Weeds” also managed to build audience in its second season and will be back later this year for a third round. Crix also kvelled about “Brotherhood” (renewed for season two) and “Sleeper Cell” (ending after two editions). On the business side, everyone’s wondering how Showtime will fit into the film aspirations of CBS Corp. supremo Leslie Moonves.
