THR Heat Index

6:00 AM PST 09/18/2012 by THR Staff

Tracking the week's ups and downs in the business of entertainment.

UP: Nancy Dubuc

The History and Lifetime chief is upped, adding oversight of A&E, international and digital to her portfolio as Hatfields & McCoys heads into the Emmys with 16 nominations.

DOWN: Jordana Spiro

Fox's heavily hyped premiere of the actress' The Mob Doctor notches only 5.1 million viewers and a soft 1.5 rating in the 18-to-49 demo.

UP: Kathy Bates

Nominated 10 times for Emmys, she finally wins for guest actress at the Creative Arts ceremony (for playing Charlie Sheen's ghost on Two and a Half Men!). Will she score another Sept. 23 for the canceled Harry's Law?

DOWN: Amanda Bynes

The actress' DUI arrest, hit-and-run accusations and erratic behavior (two hours in a boutique's dressing room?) have branded her with the Scarlet L (for Lohan). Can her career recover?
