The highest rated program on TV last week, albeit divided among a handful of channels, was Sunday night's debate between President Clinton and Republican challenger Bob Dole. But because the telecast didn't carry commercials, it didn't show up in the weekly rankings released Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. NBC's "ER" instead was in its familiar No. 1 slot. But NBC was not in its usual No. 1 position among the networks.

Jaimie Alexander, who plays warrior Sif in Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World," knew how to get attention at the movie's premiere in Hollywood on Monday. All it took was this Azzaro Couture gown. What there was -- or wasn't -- of it. [Telegraph] Julia Peyton-Jones, director of the Serpentine Gallery,  presented the Harper's Bazaar UK Tastemaker of the Year Award to fashion designer L'Wren Scott at a ceremony in London on Tuesday. Victoria Beckham and actress Gillian Anderson were also among award winners.

Some may wonder why Alec Baldwin is doing a talk show. Others may be puzzled why it's apparently set in a steakhouse.  At any rate, "Up Late with Alec Baldwin" premiered at 10 p.m. Friday with about 654,000 total viewers, according to Nielsen. (Yes, evidently 10 p.m. qualifies as "up late" for MSNBC's audience.)  That performance wasn't too bad for a Friday night, but it was nowhere near the 1.5 million that showed up for Sean Hannity's program on Fox News Channel. However, building a talk show following takes time.  PHOTOS: Hollywood backlot moments The critics weren't in a forgiving mood.

The Web has always been a haven for conspiracy theorists, sci-fi eccentrics and UFO true believers. So it's no surprise that Yahoo! turns up 500 sites in its "X-Files" file, brimming with plot threads, gossip and celeb obsession with the two lead characters. The surprise is that Fox's lawyers have been out to stop them. For the last few years, Fox has closed many fan sites of "The Simpsons," "The X-Files" and "Millennium," citing intellectual property rights.

As "The X-Files" enters its ninth season, the show's fans are bursting with questions: Is Scully's miracle baby the product of secret genetic engineering? Is the federal government colluding in these experiments? Who can be trusted as agents Doggett and Reyes try to investigate? But X-Philes don't actually expect any answers in the two-part season opener--which begins Sunday at 9 p.m. on Fox and continues Nov.

NBC and Fox attempt to sweep viewers into their respective corners with series finales. Using the ratings as a yardstick, one of these dramas will return next season. The other may not. The show on firmer footing is "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (10 p.m. NBC), which completes its second season with a grisly episode about a knife-wielding murderer who mutilates four victims within 24 hours.
