“HBO has given Boardwalk Empire the green light for a second season, just minutes after releasing Nielsen numbers proving it to be an out-of-the-box hit. Sunday’s slightly hyped premiere of its twenties-set gangster epic was watched by 4.8 million viewers during its initial 9 p.m. airing, giving the series the best debut numbers for an HBO series in six years (and right around the Nielsen number regularly generated by its smash hit True Blood). The last show to exit the gate so fast was 2004’sDeadwood, which had the advantage of a big lead-in from The Sopranos; by contrast, Empire was a self-starter. Add in viewership for two other Sunday showings of Boardwalk, and viewership rises to 7.1 millon, which is pretty stunning given that HBO reaches fewer than 29 million homes.” –Vulture
Seriously! What happened to this show!? Luckily this season is over, and there will only be 6 episode left next summer to end the show for good before a movie is made. Let’s hope they actually try to make a good mini-season when next June hits. But I am sure that they won’t. Let me guess Vince comes out of rehab and is back on top, SHOCKER!
