'Northern Lights' is Lifetime's most-watched movie

Northern-Leann Tabloid rumors likely helped Lifetime's presentation of "Nora Roberts’ Northern Lights," which became the network's most-watched movie so far this year.

"Lights" was seen by 4.5 million viewers on Saturday night, topping Lifetime's list of 2009 movie premiere ratings. The project stars LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian, who supposedly had an affair during the shoot. Guess it always helps when a network's scripted fiction has more convincing on-set romance than MTV's so-called reality single-life shows.

Dialog like this didn't hurt: "Now that we've run out of things to say, do you want to have sex? You know, hot, wet, forget-all-of-our-problems sex. It's basic, it's primal, and it's low in fat."
