HBO’s True Blood Hitting Viewership Records

August 4, 2009 by  

true_blood_2-sookie-and-billHBO is once again on top as a result of Alan Ball‘s hit TV vampire series True Blood which set another series high on Sunday (episode 7, Release Me) with 4.3 million viewers for its initial airing at 9pm.  The statistics are extremely impressive given the number of households that have HBO vs. other broadcast and cable networks.  It is very likely that the numbers will continue to climb each week for the remainder of season two to the season finale.   In other good news, the True Blood Season 1 DVD is still the top selling TV show DVD (by far) in 2009 and has sold nearly 1.2 million units and has earned almost $41 million in sales.  All good news for HBO, Alan Ball and for the cast and crew of True Blood.
