Edie Falco Delivers A Hit

| Filed under: TV News


Yes, that was a small reference to The Sopranos. Couldn't help ourselves!

Anyway, Edie Falco's new show, Nurse Jackie, opened to great reviews and even better numbers on Showtime Monday night. With the season premiere of Weeds to lead in viewers, the show attracted 1 million viewers for it's first showing and another 350,000 for the repeat following.

The numbers make it Showtime's most watched series premiere ever!


With such a great response to back it, the network went right ahead and ordered another 13 episode season of the show.

Can't go wrong with a sassy medical show!

Did U watch it? What did U think?

    Loved it! Everyone go watch the premier episode for free online at showtime. Great writing, intriguing characters, it appears to have some real legs to stand on. It definitely left me wanting more! Great job Edie and crew.

    I saw the trailers…that was enough to peak my interest. I don't have Showtime but I love Edie Falco…may consider subscribing to Showtime just for her.

    She is a fantastic actress and deserves another hit.

    the promotion shot of her holding the needle, was just absolutely grabbing. her eyes said it all, she is sassy, a bit overworked, slightly sad, vulnerable, and tough all at the same time. letting all that be captured in one shot shows what an amazing actress she is. i bet this show's great!

    fantastic writing and acting. very layered storyline. i look forward to seeing how it all plays out. edie falco is a star.

    Re: applegreenalicious – I love how she is holding the syringe in that promo shot…so it looks like she's flipping a bird.
    Usually premiere episodes can be a tad boring, trying to set up the storyline and introduce the main characters, but I thought the first Nurse Jackie episode was very intriguing and well done. Edie Falco's nurse Jackie is an interesting and complex character. Loved it.

    I watched it and loved it. Edie is terrific, as to be expected, and the writing and supporting cast are great. Bravo to Showtime for giving us another intelligent series.

    Edie Falco is a fantastic actress! I have been watching her ever since I first seen her in Oz. Plus she is a MILF.

  18. 18

    The L word is and always will be the best programme Showtime ever had! L Word

    It was FANTASTIC. Excellent writing, brilliant acting. I'm so excited! Edie was amazing, as always and Peter Facinelli was great! Showtime rocks - Weeds, Nurse Jackie, Californication, - they have all the great shows. :)

  24. 24

    I loved it! Showtime is one of the few channels playing anything worth watching.

  25. 25

    great show, love Edie, it seems like a quirky/funny show, def tuning in for the rest of the season!

  26. 26

    Love Edie Falco .. fantastic actress
    Loved the show. Already programmed the TiVO ..

  27. 27

    LOVED IT! Showtime is so great- DEXTER, US OF TARA, WEEDS and now this- A-MAY-ZING!

  28. 28

    I haven't watched it, but one of the actor's from Twilight is on it. I'm sure tons of them watched it, and that's why the views were so high!! There's no way a summer show like this would get that many views otherwise.

  29. 29

    Eddie is great! Now I'd like to see HBO or Showtime get actor David Proval who played "Richie Aprile" on a series! He is such a great and versatile actor!

    i liked it..

  31. 31

    Great show with a very different feel

  32. 32

    Absolutely love it. Thank you Showtime for intelligent television!

  33. 33

    Fucking Fabulous show !!!!!!!! My new favorite !!!

  34. 34

    FANTASTIC!!! Fresh, Funny, and twisted.. With people who can ACT. Thank you Showtime; ANOTHER homerun

  35. 35

    Nurse Jackie is like a good Sumatra…dark, layered and delicious….love it.

  36. 36

    I was hoping this show would deliver and it totally did, love love love it!!

    Edie is perfect for the role she pwned it.

  37. 37

    Loved the show…sooo good! Loved when Cooper grabbed her tit…that was so funny! Twisted character…but she does it soooo well! GOOD S*IT SHOWTIME!

  38. 38

    damn, and i think shes hot.

  39. 39

    Re: xoxogossipgirll – So, your observation that "Nurse Jackie" had very high viewer numbers as the result of a Twilight cast member on the show? Honey, you're reasoning abilities are ridiculous, to say the least…Nurse Jackie was watched, loved AND well recieved primarily due to Edie Falco's amazing talent and portrayal of the title character and terrific writing. In addition, the marketing of this show was brilliant. Think before you comment next time, or you are just going to continue to embarrass yourself.

    Re: nycbaby – I saw it for the Facinelli so SUCK IT! Jerk.

  41. 41

    Wow..This is the first time there is no negative comment. Quite deserved too. I loved it and Edie Falco..well if I was a lez, I would do her :)

  42. 42

    This show so far is great! I have seen two episodes because Showtime ONdemand here had an early viewing of the show and has put the second one ondemand as well..The second episode is even better then the first. I will def. continue to watch.

  43. 43

    i wish i got that channel!

  44. 44

    There were a lot of truths to it. Love the attitude of her character. LOVE IT! Very entertaining.

  45. 45

    Re: xcalibur – SPELL MUCH??

  46. 46

    Because Dr. Cullen is on the show. Call it the Twilight factor. lol.

  47. 47

    Re: nycbaby – I've had so many of my patients and coworkers at work saying that they want to watch the show because "the guy from twilight is in it!". These girls have NO idea who Edie Falco is. I've had to tell them that she's been in many great shows. OZ included. Maybe YOU should think before YOU comment next time.

  48. 48

    She looks drastically different here then from that promo, which, while understandable for a promotion shot … how are they doing her face up on the actual show? Leather face and outdated veneers makes for a tired actress.

  49. 49

    Re: I heart hairy guys – You're probably hung like a knat, making it virtually impossible to "suck it" (as you so eloquently put it)…must be used to hearing that given the hostility.

  50. 50

    She really is amazing.
    I am hooked she was fantastic !!!

  51. 51

    Stoked on this new show.

  52. 52

    loved it. best show this summer

  53. 53

    Re: I heart hairy guys

    I watched it for Peter too. Edie was great no denying that, the show was good, but you can't say Twilight fan didn't have ANY thing to do with it, alot of promoting went on for the show on Twilight fan sites. Everyone I know that watched it is a Twilight fan. So what?

    p.s I love you Peter.

  54. 54

    Re: I heart hairy guys – I was talking about that NYCbaby person, agreeing with you just in case…

  55. 55

    Edie has got to be one of the classiest women to ever hit tv! You go girl!!

  56. 56

    Loved it!!

  57. pj88 says – reply to this


    Just when you thought winning an EMMY was safe… BAM!!! Edie is back and she's going after EMMY… and she deserves it!!!!! This will probably run as a "comedy" so.. watch out Tina Fey!

  58. 58

    She was incredible! the supporting cast, the contention, the situations - Bravo! Television for people who are real and who can think.

  59. 59

    …another result of the Twilight effect. But I heard it was really good anyway.
