With stellar episodes like last night's "Keep This Party Going," it's easy to see why "True Blood" fever has sunk its fangs into television fandom. In fact, HBO's sultry vamp series has the highest fan engagement of any TV show, according to new fan ranking site TV Fandex. Created by Webpaint, TV Fandex measures buzz on sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google, and Webpaint's own network of 1.5 million user-created fan sites to determine the most-talked-about shows. During its first week of public rankings, "True Blood" topped the leader board followed by "NCIS," "House," "Weeds" and the canceled "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles."
Personally, I'm not surprised the supernatural goings-on in Bon Temps, Louisiana are causing so many tongues to wag. Caught in the barren wasteland that is summer programming, "True Blood" is like, well, a swig of Tru Blood to a starving vamp. The sexy series has not only cashed in on our renewed interest in the undead but continues to deliver a compelling narrative that touches on racism, religion and politics. But ... with hot bloodsuckers and ripped Jesus Camp campers.
