As you ask me East, I’m sending you a ranking of the twelve most popular shows currently aired here. Personally I’m only familiar with True Blood, a Vampire story on HBO, which I’ve occasionally watched.
My personal favorites of this year are so far The Pacific an HBO Mini series produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, which reflects about the faiths of three American Soldiers, who fought against the Japanese in WWII. The ten episodes had an average of about 1.5 to 3.0 Million viewers. Another Drama, very well executed and also on HBO was Treme, a story created by David Simon and Eric Overmyer. It’s about the life of people in New Orleans, after it was hit by ‘Katrina’ and shows how they try to rebuild their lives, homes and culture in the aftermath of the Hurricane. I think this show had an average of 0.5 – 1.2 Million viewers, which is really disappointing considering the quality of the ten episodes.
