Latest True Blood Ratings and More!


The results are IN! We have the ratings for True Blood Episode 7.02 “I Found You”. The latest Ask Ausiello talks about Eric…and as an added BONUS – check out another great review written by Meredith from io9!

WARNING: SPOILERS DO EXIST! If you don’t want to know – don’t read below!

Hmmm…which one should we start with?


I know, let’s talk about our favorite subject and object of our affections…ERIC!  Here’s the latest Ask Ausiello from TV Line. Not, that there’s anything really new here which we haven’t already posted (trying to boost ratings Ausiello?)…but this is what was said;

Question: Alexander Skarsgard’s True Blood credits on IMDb only list Episode 2 of Season 7. Please tell me that this is a mistake and there will be more of Eric than that. —Linda
Ausiello: It’s a mistake and there will be more of Eric than that. A lot more of Eric. And if you’re a fan of Eric-Pam, then you’re going to love the July 20 episode. I’ve got two words for you, one of them is “trip” and the other is “road.”

Question: Where has Anna Camp been on True Blood this season? I need my Sarah Newlin fix! —Jason
Ausiello: My favorite vampire exterminator is back in this week’s episode. And as we told you back in February, the show will be introducing us to Sarah’s Texas socialite parents and angry, bitter, gothed-out sister at some point this season (perhaps as early as Sunday).

You see? IMDb isn’t ALWAYS accurate.  I wonder if this “trip” and “road” will happen to take them to Dallas? I guess Ausiello is a little slow on THAT info. 😉 LOL As for Sarah Newlin…I hope her family is as entertaining as she is.

AGAIN, nothing new here…moving on!


The ratings are IN! Let’s see how well True Blood fared in the ratings, shall we?  This is what TVbytheNumbers had to say about the ratings race from this past Sunday.

True Blood notched 3.1 million viewers for its first airing, down from the 4 million viewers that tuned in for the premiere last week. Including a repeat airing True Blood notched 3.5 million total viewers.

OUCH! They took a nose-dive! They couldn’t even reach 4 million TOTAL!


Mind you, they were still tops in the age 18-49 category – right behind the World Cup and BET Awards…and since those aren’t on every week – you can’t really compare them – BUT they still lost viewers. I wonder why…? (I know the reason…but feel free to join in my glee.)


We’ve saved the best for last. Meredith from io9 published her review from Episode 2! You’ve REALLY got to read it…she shares many of the same feelings as we feel about it. Please click on the image below to read her review aptly titled, “True Blood Makes Every Character’s Crotch Explode”.


I think Meredith and I could be soulmates…LOL

I think my favorite quote from this is;

Con: Sookie takes the law enforcement back to the body she found in the woods and quotes something she read off a tombstone (believe it) about the brutal indifference of life. Hey Sooks, where was your compassion for this poor soul when you stumbled over her cold, dead body the previous night and decided, “No, no, first I need some Jack Daniels and some sex, and then I’ll report to the authorities about the poor dead girl in my backyard. I’m sure the coyotes won’t eat her face off too much for an open casket funeral.” Please, someone, please call her out on this bullshit.

Sing it, sista! Thank you for making us laugh and speaking the truth at the same time!

  1. Love it!!! Shared this with the Ongoing Detestation of Bill Compton, and my own group. Thanks for the good news!

  2. LOL, thank you, I really needed this post.

  3. Well I must say the ratings are truly showing the disenchantment of the viewers with this train wreck. I guess they’ll be down to 500k in viewership by episode 10. Although AB and BB both are already paid for their work, so I’m sure they can along with Anna and Steve laugh all the way to the bank.

    You know I was just thinking about Sookie previously finding the body. Wasn’t she walking home from Merlottes/Bellfleurs when she found the body?? That’s quite a distance from Sookies house isn’t it??? Must be another writers inconsistances popping up.

    Other than that I’ll have to go to read Meridaths review, the catchy title is so cute. So Bye for now and keep up the good work!!!

  4. Happy Canada Day to all Canadians (except Bieber-couldn’t resist). 🙂

    Thanks for this post, Erika. 🙂

    Beautiful pic of Alex-as-Dream-Eric from ep. 7×02. ❤

    I agree-we already know about the Eric/Pam stuff. I don't speak for others, of course, but personally, I'll see it when I get around to seeing it. I haven't given these people ratings for first-run eps since ep. 5×12, very deliberately. Try again, Ausiello.

    Like Anna Camp; don't care about Sarah Newlin.

    I heard about the ratings. I would never wish bad for anyone. I would feel guilty enjoying peoples' misery. That said, the news didn't make me unhappy. 🙂 Openly treat the audience like garbage/"entitled" viewers, bite the hand that feeds you, keep turning in lousy/retconned/rapist-apologist work, the hand will get tired and move on.

    I'm glad you keep giving shout-outs to Meredith from io9. She keeps me informed without "having" to watch, and, other than her "hey Alcide" stuff, I pretty much agree with her across the board to boot. Love her recaps. ❤ Yes, why was Sookie more concerned with getting plowed by her latest beloved boring abuser than reporting the dead girl?

    Take care, everyone. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  5. I enjoyed that review so much!! Spot on… It’s really unbelievable that Eric and Fangtasia didn’t cross Sookie’s mind ONCE … so bad
    Did anybody see True to the End Website and the vote results on who you couldn’t leave without on TB..something like that, Eric had something like 79%, Pam and Bill had more votes than poor Sookie

  6. I’ll bet it is because some of the fanbase didn’t believe Eric would show. I have never watched a show where most of the fanbase have no faith in how it will end.

  7. OMG, I wish I had been reading those Meredith/Io9 recaps after every episode…that chick is HILARIOUS!!! I definitely won’t be missing any of them this season. 🙂
