The American incarnation of the popular British game show, "The Weakest Link," made a strong start with its first airing. NBC's "Weakest Link" - starring Anne Robinson who hosted the British show - drew 14.7 million viewers Monday, beating out all the competition in its time slot. It was NBC's best showing in that normally weak slot since 1996, with 81% more viewers than NBC has been averaging this year, according to Nielsen Media Research.
