With just one season under their belt and the second, coming up bloody clean, it has been announced that True Blood is draining the competition.
Sunday night’s “True Blood” was seen by 4.5 million viewers, up from last week’s record high of 4.4 million. In cume, “True Blood” is averaging 11.4 million viewers per episode (by unfair comparison, original broadcast shows this summer are averaging about 5.5 million viewers for their debut episodes). “Hung” and “Entourage” both averaged 2.8 million.
As for Monday night’s ratings, CBS won with repeats, with “Big Bang Theory” (8.6 million viewers, 2.7 preliminary adults 18-49 rating) building on “Two and a Half Men” (8.2 million, 2.6) once again. NBC was second with “Great American Road Trip” (4.5 million 1.4) unexpectedly hitting a series high, though some local NFL coverage might be skewing that number, followed by a repeat and “Dateline” (6.6 million, 1.8).
With a biting finesse, the show is getting better with every episode that airs, and that can only mean more viewers for future seasons…Don’t forget I was one of the first to buy my own bottles of the actual drink Tru Blood, which you can order if you check out the post.. Cheers
