Spartacus: You Are Entertained!

The Starz network's new sex, swords, and sandals television series, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, debuted on Friday night to record numbers for the network. Just north of one million people watched the program on either Starz or Encore, which isn't earth-shattering by regular cable standards, but is certainly a nice sign of progress for the growing network. This news will make the (still alive!) Peter Graves proud. Note: If you, like us, haven't yet decided to shell out the extra money that it takes to get Starz through your cable company, you'll be glad to know that you can watch Spartacus through the miracle that is Netflix Streaming.
