‘True Blood’ ratings, Sookie showing more skin, what’s with Eric the vampire’s hair? June 16, 2009

Posted by Diana McCabe in Entertainment.

The opener for season No. 2 of HBO’s True Blood series sucked in 3.7 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research data. That’s the most since the finale of The Sopranos. Read more about the ratings HERE.

Also — everyone was talking about the hot scenes in the opener, starring Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer. Paquin, who plays Sookie — based on the Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse books — says viewers will be seeing a lot more of her — without clothing — this season, and she’s been working out in the gym to get in shape. (I mean was that last love scene HOT or what!!??)

She tells the The National Ledger: “I get more naked this season than I did last season. … We have a really great crew and everyone’s really respectful. It’s not an issue for me.”(To read the entire article, CLICK HERE.)

And what was with that tinfoil in Eric’s hair? I guess even vampires need highlights and some evidently (Bill) recycle. But check out what Alexander Skarsgard told the New York Post’s PopWrap why “There’s more to Eric than being a badass vampire.”

And for all other insights into the HBO series, go to www.sookiestackhouse.com. Each week, the trio of Maria, Tamara and Pamela will podcast their thoughts on the show and offer up some spoilers and other gossip from the show. They also have a ton more interviews with the cast and a lot more vampire entertainment news.

COMING UP: I’ll be interviewing Christine Feehan. Anyone who has read her Carpathian series, Ghost Walkers books , Leopard series or her Drake sister novels knows how cool her stories are — although how does she keep all her series straight? If you’ve got questions for her — lemme know in the comments section below.
