True Blood Finale: The Ratings Are In!

HBO’s Vampire Series Keeps Up With It’s Season 7 Debut:
As HBO’s True Blood Season 7 debuted, 4 million people tuned in to witness the end of an era. Those numbers are not too bad at all, especially considering many people were claiming True Blood had passed its use by date. Those opening season viewers seemed to have stuck around until the very end and now we have True Blood closing on a high with the same amount of people who watched it’s season debut, also watched the finale.
True Blood not only had the NRL preseason football to contend with on Sunday night, but the MTV Video Music Awards as well. So these ratings, while down just a little from the Season 6 finale last year, are still very good numbers indeed. Overall though, True Blood’s Season 7 averaged – across all platforms – at total of 9.4 million viewers! And, according to Nielsen, True Blood came in second for scripted summer viewing in the US among young adults. Stephen King’s TV adaptation, Under the Dome came in at number 1 in this category.
Well done to HBO and True Blood!
