Shows get their renewals due to their populaity right? Now there's a new tool for measuring the "online engagement" of TV viewers called the TV Fandex. The first week of Fandex measurement has shown that HBO's "True Blood" has the highest level of online engagement of any TV program, go figure. If the series stays as good as last night's episode, "True Blood" will rank very high for the rest of its season.
As you can see, we're kind of in between seasons at the moment, with very little to offer beyond cable options: Who wants to bet that "Jon & Kate" will announce a separation tonight? Jason Jones will supposedly be reporting from Iran on "The Daily Show" - and check out late night TV, we had a hard time making our picks for the night but the musical options made us go with Letterman because he's got Iggy Pop, and Fallon's got Sonic Youth.The TV Junkie Plan: "Jon & Kate Plus 8" (yes, we're succumbing to the hype), "Weeds", "Nurse Jackie", "The Daily Show", Letterman, Fallon.
