"True Blood" Is A Massive Hit
The second season premiere of "True Blood" was the highest rated program for HBO since the finale of The Sopranos.
According to the Nielson ratings, 3.7 million viewers tuned in to "True Blood". The ratings are up 157% from the first season's premiere and up 51% than last season's finale.
"True Blood: The Complete First Season" DVD has sold over 1 million copies in the first two months of release. The disc set was released two months ago and has already made $35 million in total sales, worldwide.
This past week, "True Blood" posted its highest ratings yet for the series when 3.9 million viewers turned in for episode 5 of season two.
"True Blood" is one of my top five shows on TV (Heroes, United States of Tara, Weeds and Dexter) being the others, although Nurse Jackie and Hung are new additions. I am glad it's finally getting the attention it deserves.
