StatShot: True Blood Sinks Its Teeth Into Twitter

OK. I give up. Why do people like True Blood so much? In a brutal experiment, I watched all of season one to see what the big deal was. It’s got horrible acting, it’s poorly conceived, and pays no attention to itself. So why are so many people buzzing about it on Twitter? The folks at Trendrr created a separate graph for the show because it was so much more popular than the competition.


Elsewhere on Twitter, David Letterman had some bite (ha!) following the “Fire David Letterman Rally” last week. Mainstay So You Think You Can Dance got a nice bump midweek, and the Showtime series Weeds got some micro-messaging love.


There were a lot of newcomers to TorrentFreak’s list of the Most Pirated Movies on BitTorrent, with Nicolas Cage’s doomsday pic Knowing topping the chart. Also on the list is The Hangover, which, despite its presence on this list, continues to do boffo box office.
