Ratings: True Blood, Glee Project Hit Highs

Never underestimate the power of a faux threesome.

Sunday’s True Blood — featuring a much-buzzed-about near-ménage between Eric Sookie and Bill — attracted a series-high 5.5 million viewers. That bests the show’s previous record of 5.44 million viewers set by the penultimate episode of Season 3.

True Blood‘s fourth season wraps on Sept. 11 (and look for a familiar face to make a shocking return during the hour.)

In other ratings news, the finale of The Glee Project on Oxygen drew a best-ever 1.24 million viewers, per tvbythenumbers.com.
