Don't cry, Love. Playing a prostitute and wearing a jumpsuit earned your Lifetime original movie some pretty impressive numbers. Jennifer Love Hewitt's "The Client List" averaged a whopping 3.9 million viewers in its first airing, making it the second most-watched cable movie of 2010. The story of a down-on-her-luck mom who turns to hookin', "CL" also features Cybill Shepherd in the role of Love's mom. (Personally, we think she would have been better cast as a no-nonsense madam, but we'll take our Cybill where we can get her.)All in all, Monday night was a big one for those with a double dose of the X chromosome. Freshman TNT drama "Rizzoli & Isles" brought in 7.3 million viewers for its second episode -- that's just a 4 percent drop from last week's 7.6 million premiere. Stars Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander even managed to trump their "Closer" lead-in, which had a slightly larger drop in total viewers down to 7 million.
