If you notice any big gusts of wind emanating around Bryant Park this afternoon, you can probably chalk it up to HBO executives breathing a huge sigh of relief. Roughly 3.7 million people tuned in to the season-two premiere of True Blood on Sunday night, making it the most-watched program on the network since the series finale of The Sopranos back in June 2007.
