Bloody Hell: 'True Blood' Sets Another Record at HBO

The news just keeps getting better for HBO.

Sunday's episode of the pay cable network's "True Blood" brought in 4.3 million viewers, according to Nielsen. That's a record tune-in for the two-year-old show, and a stunning stat given just how few home HBO reaches vs. other broadcast and cable networks.

Indeed, "True Blood's" viewer tally was higher than the premieres of some much- hyped network shows, including Fox's "More to Love" (4.0 million viewers) and ABC's "Defying Gravity" (3.6 million).

The news was also good for the other shows in HBO's Sunday lineup. Both "Hung" (3.4 million) and "Entourage" (3.2 million) had their second-best ratings of the season.

True Blood Recipe: Merlotte's Mexican Cheeseburger

This is a favorite of JB du Rone, he orders one in All Together Dead.
I believe it's just occasionally offered as 'Daily Special' at Merlotte's, but JB can always get one ;-)

Makes 4 patties

. 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
. 1 tablespoon chili powder
. 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
. 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
. 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
. 1/4 teaspoon salt
. 4 slices Monterrey Jack cheese with jalapenos peppers

Combine ground beef with seasonings; form into 8 patties, each about 1/4-inch thick.
Place a piece of cheese in the center of the patty and pressed together at the edges with cheese in the center.

Broil or grill over medium-hot coals, turning once, until done. You can add more cheese to the top of the burger. Serve on a toasted bun with lettuce, tomato, sliced avocados and sliced purple onions.
* you can use Picante or Salsa as a condiment
Makes 4 large burgers

Hollywood's Most Powerful Vampires

From Forbes.com , Yes the business paper !

We're talking movie and television characters, not agents and executives. Which are the most popular and most lucrative?

Last week, the co-chief of HBO stood in front of a throng of television critics raving about the premium network's latest success. Though previous landmark series were built on gangsters and urban fashionistas, the latest ratings coup for the hitmaker is built around … vampires.

It's not surprising that True Blood has been a boon to Time Warner's ( TWX - news - people ) HBO. Since Bela Lugosi hit the screen as Dracula in 1931 these bloodsuckers have proven to be near-sure-fire moneymakers for Hollywood, tapped and retapped by producers looking to lure bodies into seats.

In Pictures: Hollywood's 10 Most Powerful Vampires

"Vampires have become a substitute for fairy tales that adults couldn't tell themselves anymore," says William Patrick Day, professor of cinema and English at Oberlin College and author of Vampire Legends in Contemporary American Culture: What Becomes a Legend Most. "Vampires are dangerous and sexy and powerful and they have what humans want--immortality."

The Vampire Flashbacks Of Our Undead Lives. Plus The Best Thing You've Ever Seen

I'm really picky about what recaps and reviews I read and even more so about what what I post but I always like io9 Meredith Woerner's "Pro and Cons"

This week was A LOT of talking on True Blood. Gabby vampires, talky humans... there was hardly any sex at all. But never fear: we've have a BIG surprise for you guys in this review, check it out. Spoilers below...

So how do you compete with last weeks amazing vampire lounge lizard moment? Easy, Melrose Place it up. This week was all feelings, elaborate costumes and tears, bloody tears. I enjoyed it, but I feel like we're moments away from the good stuff, and I can't wait to see Godric and his frat buddies unleashed on these Christian vampire haters (seriously Godric looked like the morning remnants from a Jersey Shore party, tribal arm tatt included, and after I said he looked neat a few weeks ago... Tsk, tsk.)

But I'm getting ahead of myself... onward, to the Pros and Cons of True Blood.

Con: Not even threatening the death of my beloved puppy boy can make me interested in the done-to-death sex parties. Maryann, you need a new shtick, and fast. But on the other hand, it did give us this...
