True Blood is keeping its title of HBO‘s flagship series… at least for now. Last night’s premiere of Season 6, the vampire drama’s first without Alan Ball at the helm, delivered 4.5 million viewers for the episode directed by star Stephen Moyer. That was down from the 5.2 million who tuned in for last year’s Season 5 debut, which did not face the NBA Finals as was the case last night. It was also up a notch from the 4.4 million viewers who watched the Season 3 opener of Game Of Thrones. The medieval fantasy series kept growing throughout the season, hitting a series of highs. It remains to be seen whether True Blood will follow a similar upward ratings trajectory. Regardless, this is a solid turnout for a series in its sixth season.
