Big pimpin'!

Katie Holmes arrived back in New York yesterday via her - wait for it - helicopter after visiting her hubby, Tom Cruise in Miami, where he is filming Rock of Ages.

Pretty sweet ride for someone who hasn't starred in a movie in awhile. Yes, we guess we could count The Kennedys, but we don't think she would want us to!

It's cool. Being a mom is just as rewarding. Right, Katie???

Rough Second Night For The Kennedys

Filed under: TV NewsKatie HolmesBusiness Blitz

kennedys ratings down on second night

..Guess Katie Holmes' pillbox hat didn't do it for everyone!

Earlier this week we were pleased to report that Reelz Channel's The Kennedys two-part premiere averaged an impressive 1.9 million viewers overall!

We had hoped that the momentum would keep up, but unfortunately it has not.

The third episode of The Kennedys averaged 841,000 viewers, which was a 35 percent decrease from Monday's premiere (which was actually 1.3 million viewers minus a repeat airing)

Quite a fall from the premiere, which marked the “highest ratings in the network’s five-year history.”

Hopefully things will pick up as the series continues…

Did U tune in for episode three of The Kennedys? Or did U cut out after the premiere?

The Kennedys Are A Win For Reelz Channel

Filed under: TV NewsKatie Holmes

Ask not what a plagued miniseries can do for you - but buy it with the hope that it will bring you exactly what you hope it will!

Such is the story for the Reelz Channel who set a record last night with their first two hours of The Kennedys. The world premiere of the miniseries averaged 1.9 million viewers — a record for the basic cable channel that reaches just 60 million homes. Reelz CEO Stan E. Hubbard released a statement this morning on the success of the series, saying:

“Viewers across America showed their ongoing fascination with the Kennedy family and, specifically, their desire to see such a star-studded cast in the highly-anticipated ‘The Kennedys’. In acquiring The Kennedy’ our aim was to give viewers an opportunity to watch an incredible movie event with massive star power and to also put a spotlight on our network like never before.”

Mission accomplished. Let's hope the momentum keeps up for the rest of the week!

We know what the critics thought about it, but how about U? Did U tune in to see Katie Holmes fill out a pillbox hat?

Two Thumbs Way Down For Katie Holmes, Critics Aren't Impressed With Kennedys Role

Filed under: Film FlickersKatie Holmes

To her credit, it was a big pillbox hat to fill and six years on the Creek really didn't prepare her for a career of anything more than cable sitcoms and Lifetime movies such a big role.

This weekend, the long-awaited, highly-controversial mini-series The Kennedys will finally premiere on the Reelz Channel, but from what we are hearing for critics, Katie should've wished that this thing stayed buried. As you might've guessed, she isn't getting the best reviews for her role as Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, though we'll admit, no one was as harsh as we thought they would be.

Like the Hollywood Reporter. Their critic wrote that the mini-series on the whole was "dull" and "unwatchable", along with saying it was very hard to step away from the fact that you were watching Katie Holmes play a character. He wrote:

"You think, 'That’s Katie Holmes.' Or, 'That’s Katie Holmes having the damndest time with Jackie’s accent.' You are never transported somewhere else by the character because the real-life subjects are so distinctive in your mind."

The Jackie O accent was a big problem for a lot of other critics, like CBS' Early Show, who pointed out that Katie "doesn't really have the gravitas to pull off the role…And the accent, it's a little silly — for eight hours, it's a long time to be, you know, watching her play this character in the way that she does."

Variety added that Katie very much "looked the part," but conceeded that "that's about all" she brought to the movie.

Whomp, whomp. Well, if nothing else, it was an experience, Katie. You got to where iconic clothes and look like the most iconic First Lady in living memory. Perhaps, however, its time to reevaluate your career choices. Let's see how you do with Jack and Jill and then maybe consider a more comedy-esque career, huh?

TomKat Prowls The Kennedys Red Carpet

Filed under: Tom CruiseKatie Holmes

What a pretty dress she has on! Someone let her daughter dress her for this event!

Last night, Katie Holmes was on hand for the premiere of her uber-controversial historical mini-series, The Kennedys, which premieres on the Reelz Channel next month. Joining her was her husband, Tom Cruise, who took time off from his own movie to support his wifey's career.

Say what you will about them (we sure as hell can't stop you), but they do seem to have respect for each other when it comes to their careers. Sure, maybe he does more movies than her, but when its her turn, Tom gives her the room to shine.

But where is lil Suri Cruise we wonder? Home with Xenu a nanny?

Check out more shots of TomKat at the premiere in Beverly Hills in the gallery (below).
