No Liz lift. The hype surrounding Liz & Dick, Lindsay Lohan's turn as Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime movie, didn't translate into ratings. Sunday's film averaged 3.5 million viewers, little more than half the turnout for last month's remake of Steel Magnolias.
iGoodbye. The series finale of iCarly claimed 6.4 million viewers Friday, a solid if not record-setting turnout for Miranda Cosgrove's live-action comedy hit. Saturday's premiere of Marvin Marvin, an alien comedy that marks Internet star Lucas Cruikshank's latest project for the kids network, drew 2.6 million.
Trimmings. The slow Thanksgiving week was dominated by football, as ABC's Spike Lee documentary on Michael Jackson, Bad 25, drew a weak 4.6 million viewers on Turkey Day, a million shy of last year's Lady Gaga special; USA's season sign-off for Covert Affairs was low with 2.5 million Tuesday; and the third-season finish for HBO's Treme was typically small with 473,000. Even Justin Bieber wasn't much help for OWN's Oprah's Next Chapter, which posted 421,000 for Sunday's interview.
