True Blood Ratings Soar

Posted on the 13 July 2011 by Thevault @The_Vault

True Blood Ratings SoarTrue Blood viewers came back in force to watch Episode 3 of Season 4. 

The HBO series’ third episode of the new season led all of cable for the night, delivering 6.1 million viewers over two airings on Sunday, with 5 million tuning in at 9 p.m. and another 1.1 million at 11 p.m.

That marks an increase over the prior week’s July 4th holiday weekend episode, which experienced a steep drop with 2.9 million viewers compared to the season premiere’s 5.42 million total viewers. This news probably doesn’t come as a surprise for the network, which offered Episode 2 as early as a week before its Sunday airing on several platforms, including its new streaming video service HBO Go and On Demand. And while some media sites and fans viewed the steep ratings decline as a marker that the network’s marketing promotion had failed, HBO’s Corporate Affairs SVP Jeff Cusson explained that the network didn’t view the drop negatively. “The numbers were not a surprise at all,” he told us.
