Pro football is back, and Thursday night's kickoff game between the Denver Broncos and the Baltimore Ravens scored a big victory for NBC.  According to early numbers from Nielsen, the game drew a rating of 10 in prime time among advertiser-desired 18-49-year-olds. That's an increase of about 15% from preliminary ratings for last year's first game on NBC. That contest on Sept 5, 2012, between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants scored a rating of 8.7 in the early numbers and had some serious competition: Bill Clinton's speech at the Democratic National Convention.

It's now been about three weeks since any "Big Brother" contestants set off major controversies with racist and homophobic remarks or jokes about child pornography. Nonetheless, the CBS reality series increased its ratings from last week to win Thursday night.  "Big Brother," which had little competition in prime time among the major networks, drew 6.83 million viewers to its live elimination episode, according to preliminary numbers from Nielsen, up 8% from last week. The show generated a rating of 2.3 in the key 18-49 demographic, climbing 5%. Results were inflated because of preseason NFL telecasts that affected about 3% of the country.

"NYC 22," which premieres Sunday on CBS, is about rookie policemen in the upper reaches of Manhattan. The newsworthy particulars are that it is the work of Robert De Niro's Tribeca Productions; that it was created by Richard Price, who wrote the novels "The Wanderers" and "Clockers" (made into movies by Philip Kaufman and Spike Lee, respectively), the De Niro film "Mad Dog and Glory," Martin Scorsese's "The Color of Money" and several episodes of "The Wire"; and that its Price-penned pilot was directed by James Mangold ("3:10 to Yuma")

"Rookie Blue" is, to be quick about it, "Grey's Anatomy" with uniforms and guns. That you probably will find that comparison in every review you read of the series, which begins tonight on ABC — in the "Grey's Anatomy," slot — is nothing I can do anything about. But there is no way I can leave it out of this one. I don't say this to warn you off — indeed, it may be just the hook that snares you — only to tell you where we are. We are with pretty young people (two male, three female, as per "Grey's")
