This is what success looks like. These are the numbers for the HBO show True Blood over 12 shows.
The DVD sales for the show are sensational: 1.2 million units, grossing some $41 million in revenue in 6 weeks of sale.
At TVbytheNumbers.com, Robert Seidman wonders whether it’s a spillover success from Twilight. He also wonders whether there is a gay audience for the show. It is, in any case, a very good show.
For once, I’m not speculating. That’s your job.
