    @ Juan & reallypeople

    Neither of you know what you’re talking about. No offense, but you’re seriously just spouting off nonsense. HBO fully owns True Blood, so I’m not even sure what Juan means when he said that it’d be their most profitable if that were the case (especially because it is actually the case).

    If you like, I could come back with links that prove many of your points completely wrong, or you could just concede that you’re full of it, and let that be the end of it. Nothing wrong with that. We’re all wrong every now and then.

    In any case, both True Blood and Game of Thrones are massive hits for the network, so I don’t see how or why they’re being pitted against one another. That’s not how anyone at HBO views it, I can tell you that much.

  • Juan

    Weez, your ignorant opinion is dually noted. If you want me to take you serious, 1) provide some basis to your argument (you have provided nothing), 2) provide sources to back it up.

    Unlike you, I don’t derive pleasure from insulting people with baseless posts. Every point I have brought up has been backed by a source. You should try that some time. Someone might take you serious then.

    As for the assertion HBO fully owns True Blood, that point was brought up by the GoTers. It served no purpose for me to check on the validity of the claim at the time. Be rest assured I will now.

    Alan Ball’s Your Face Goes Here Entertainment produces True Blood for HBO. That company derives royalties for every ep aired/viewed & a % of all the revenue derived from the show. If HBO ever decided to cancel it, YFGHE would be free to produce it for another network.

    HBO produces Game of Thrones outright. Any royalties or revenue sharing depends on each individual contract with the executive producers & cast members. If HBO ever decided to cancel it, it would simply end. There are no other production companies involved.

    Ep 2 of True Blood drew 5m on the night. According to the nytimes, the first 3 ep of S2 drew 12.1m, 10m, & 10.3m across all venues back in 2009. None of those ep drew any where close to 5m on the night. Suggesting True Blood will end any time soon is simply dumb. Alan Ball already handed the reigns over to someone else to produce the show. That’s how confident they are in the True Blood fan base.

    I <3 Falling Skies….such a great show with an excellent cast of actors. I am always on the edge of my seat waiting to see what is going to happen next. It's kind of ironic that the guy who plays Bressler (Matt Frewer) played in the movie "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" and was always talking about his army days and now he is playing an army guy. Any ideas on who the mole is? I highly doubt it's Hal, that'd be too simple…..maybe it's Pope or Bressler?
