True Blood Ratings And DVD Sales Still Going Strong

September 16, 2009 by  

true-blood-season-2-poster-group-newEverybody was counting down till the season finale of True Blood. What was going to happen? How will Alan Ball end the season? After the finale came and went, figures started rolling in. Just how many viewers tuned in to see the death of Maryann as well as Eggs? 5.114 million True Blood fans were watching the show placing the television #10 out of 25 for the week of September 13. The ranking has the top 25 cable shows. Barely beating True Blood was Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor that had followed after a presidential address. Other shows in the top 10 included the 2009 Video Music Awards on MTV as well as the Postshow. iCarly returned for it’s third season and Scooby Doo: Mystery Begins helped the cartoons to rise to the top. USC and Ohio State College Football was in  this week with 10.58 viewers.

Have no fear though, True Blood is still going strong. The complete first season of True Blood is still selling. At the end of the week for September 6, Heroes did top the list. Supernatural had some good numbers as well for their fourth season. But it’s True Blood’s DVD sales that are still amazing people. It has been 16 weeks and another 62,123 units were sold. That is a 12% increase from week 15 and an addition $2.2 million to add to the already growing sales total. While True Blood is number 6 in DVD sales, it has a grand total of 1.49 million units sold with an estimated revenue of $52 million. That is amazing!

    I PRE ORDERED THE SECOND SEASON AGES AGO. CAN’T WAIT TO GET IT ! SOME, LIKE MY FRIEND IN OHIO, RENT TRUE BLOOD FROM BLOCKBUSTER. SO, IT’S SELLING THERE TOO. IT’S A FUN, SAD, HAPPY, FANTASY WORLD, AND I LOVE IT. I’D LOVE ANY WORLD THAT CONTAINED BILL COMPTON. HE IS SO CLASSY, AND, OF COURSE, BEAUTIFUL. STEPHEN IS PERFECT TO PLAY HIM. FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN, HE TOO IS CLASSY, AND BEAUTIFUL. THE WHOLE CAST IS JUST A BLAST TO WATCH. I AM TOTALLY ADDICTED ! GO TRUE BLOOD !

      I recommend going to HBO’s site there will be able to download season 2 recaps,trailers for season 2 and extras like Sookie and Bill dancing near a grave,Sam walking through the mist with bloody scars on his arm and Eric wiping blood of his mouth.
      The recaps are really cool! It was agreat season! kept me on the edge of my seat! This show is just awesome..strange,weird but nonetheless. It’s very addicting and the writing is so cool!
      The cast is really cool and nice,too

    I just hope we don’t have to wait until May 2010 for season 2 to come out on DVD like we had to in 2009. It would make a hella good Christmas present.

  • I’ve got my season 1..and am just waiting for season 2!!! (already been ordered..) Love the show!! Can’t get enough “True Blood!!” OH, and my vampire Bill Compton….

    It’s not surprising..Its a great show! When the Sopranos first 3 years were available on dvd fans scarfed them up in droves!
    Dvd sales mean that those who dont have HBO or who dont have time to watch~~~theres always On Demand right?? Dvd sales of the Sopranos,Sex in the City,Family Guy really helped the series subsequent seasons and put the shows over the top! Just think would South Park have been as popular Without all the dvd sales?? Twilight may have fairly atthe box office but it was the dvd sales that put it over as well…millions of discs sold bought by mostlt teens im guessing. Dvd sales can help a lot!!
    Go True Blood!! Go HBO!!
