Hot on the heels of a big feature in yesterday's New York Times, HBO announced today that Sunday night's episode of True Blood set a series high, with 3.9 million viewers. Hung also reported a 29 percent increase in viewers from its debut two weeks ago, and the season-six premiere of Entourage managed to more than double the ratings the show got for its season-five debut last September. Guess this means we won't be hearing any more of those "HB-Over" slams for a while. [B&C]
