from James Hibberd:
“Curb” drew 1.1 million viewers, down just a hair from last year. “Bored” (1 million) held 92% of the “Curb” audience.
By comparison, HBO’s other new comedy this year, “Hung,” opened to a record 2.8 million viewers in June, though with a much stronger lead in. Adding their first repeat episodes, “Curb” ended up with 1.9 million viewers; “Bored” with 1.6 million.
This should, but won’t, end any discussion of the benefit Hung gets from True Blood….
update: at 10:30pm Entourage did much better with 1.827 million viewers and a 1.1/3 A1849 (courtesy of our friend TVBill).
