Finale ratings: 'Entourage' up, 'True Blood' down

Entourage

HBO’s finale-stuffed Sunday ratings are here: The last-ever episode of Entourage went out on a high note, concluding with its most-watched episode of the season, with 3.1 million viewers (2.6 million in its first airing, plus the show’s repeat).

The fourth-season closer of True Blood delivered 6.2 million viewers total for the night (5.1 million for its first airing, plus the repeat) – down slightly this year after rising last summer. Overall, though, Blood did well this season, hitting a series high with one episode and maintaining its average. Curb Your Enthusiasm benefited by being paired with True Blood this summer (an odd coupling, but the ratings didn’t mind) – and ended with a total of 2.4 million for the night. That’s Curb’s most-watched finale since 2004.
