TV Junkie: 'True Blood' Season Premiere on Sunday
Weekend EditionSure we have "The Soup" and a handful of choice regular programs this weekend, but what it's all about is the season premiere of "True Blood" at 9pm on Sunday on HBO. The buzz about this show has been building steadily since last season ended with most people catching up by either buying season one or renting it on Netflix. Here we are, the moment is about to happen - we've been invited to 2 viewing parties on Sunday, how about yourself? We're anticipating a lot of hungover viewers straggling into work on Sunday as there's something about vampires that makes people want to cut loose. Check out the HBO "True Blood" page, complete with a countdown counted in drops of blood.
Today marks the end of analog TV - if you are reading this in an actual web page then there's a 99.99% probability that this won't apply to you.
A couple weeks ago we reported that "My Name Is Earl" was to be resurrected on TBS - turns out, according to E!, that this plan has been pulled, and thus, "Earl" is stone dead for the time being.
