  3. Rjrtist says:

    TB viewers need to go up, not stay flat with last year. THAT is not growth.

    • JC says:

      Very few shows (on any network) see growth between seasons 4 and 5. True Blood is still the most viewed show on HBO and they are VERY happy with these numbers.

    I love the odd bookend of these 2 shows. But Sundays are always great. Both shows were great this season and can’t wait till next summer.
