    What about the official premiere date for True Blood’s final season?

    • katrina says:

      true blood will probably be announced right before got starts. Cause when Got ends is when true blood will start. so count 10 episodes for got maybe there might be a two week break in the middle somewhere so Im guessing June

  4. Richard says:

    Is there any Curb your Enthusiasm update? Thanks!

    I am way to excited about a trailer. And am I the only one that thinks it is kind of weird that True Detective is debuting opposite the globes, when McConaughy is nominated. Maybe not. I always thought it was weird when the Mad Men would air opposite the Emmys.
