True Blood Season Premiere Ratings Soar, up 38% over S2…

Couldn’t find ANY really good economic data today (and tomorrow home sales data should be sheer awful), but hey True Blood’s ratings were way up! Do the coming Cantor Fitzgerald movie futures cover Cable shows?! We could make a killing…

THR Live Feed:

HBO’s third season “True Blood” premiere drew 5.1 million viewers Sunday night. That’s up 38% from the season two opener, plus up 19% from the season two average performance. If you add the 1.3 million viewers from the 11 p.m. replay, “Blood” wound up with 6.4 million viewers.

Now, this is not an all-time high for the show, which has crested 5.3 million for a single airing in the past. But “True Blood” typically gathers ratings strength over the course of its season…

BP Oil Spill and Team Obama

Jake Tapper summarizes the many positions of Team Obama to date, none of which is getting the job done:

Twofer Tuesday: New Ozzy Album – ‘Scream’ releases 6/22

Making of:


…Oz is as sharp as a dagger and at the top of his headbanging skills for “Scream.” His voice is clear, and he belts every song with conviction.

The opening tune, “Let It Die,” sets the bar. This is metal music that begs for arena play, where the sounds of heavy bass, cowbell wallops and guitar power chords can expand. Ozzy’s vocals are as good as they get as he mixes his controlled scream with funky swagger.

That sweat-and-danger attitude carries into “Let Me Hear You Scream,” which combines thrash metal with a tempo that would allow “Scream” dance-hall success.

This is heavy, stairway-to-hell music that demands more volume than your ears should hear…
