As we all know, “True Blood” returned with its Season 4 debut on Sunday, and those who watched were treated to mythical creatures like witches and vampires and fairies and sexy cage-fighting lesbians. Frankly, I found it underwhelming, but the premiere matched a series high for viewership:
The fourth season premiere of True Blood Sunday matched its series high performance of 5.4 million viewers. It also improved upon its season 3 debut by 6 percent.
The rebroadcast at 11 p.m. added an additional one million viewers for a combined 6.4 million viewers on Sunday. Viewership levels will no doubt build over the next few episodes, especially since fans expect Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Sookie (Anna Paquin) to hook up in the shower this season. [EW]
Frankly, I find ratings news boring and I don’t enjoy writing about it. But I’ll happily use this news story to demand more screen time for Deborah Ann Woll, who plays the young vampire Jessica. She inspires me the way young people get inspired for political causes. That’s why I’ve printed up a whole bunch of signs that read DEBORAH ANN WOLL NAKED IN 2011.
