Here's a note from the old Sugar Hill label folks:
Good news. This spot was confirmed today! Up to one minute of the song will be used.
Of the six placements Welk/Sugar Hill/Vanguard has enjoyed in this show’s 2 seasons so far, I anticipate this one to be the best. Song should be highlighted quite nicely.
Airs this Sunday, Aug. 2nd @ 9pm – episode #207
According to broadcastingcable.com, “The second season premiere of the series on June 14, 2009 was watched by 3.7 million viewers, making it the most watched program on HBO since the series finale of The Sopranos.” And according to Entertainment Weekly, for the 7/14 episode, “Viewers’ thirst for True Blood is intensifying: After taking a week off, the bloody good vampire saga’s latest episode on Sunday attracted a series-high 3.9 million viewers.” Last week pulled in 3.85 viewers, says tvbythenumbers.com. The show is a bona fide hit for HBO.
So, yeah, close to 4 million people will get to listen to “Death Trip” simultaneously (without getting technical and counting the different time zones as…different time zones). I love it!"
We love it too!
