It might not have the strength of Game of Thrones anymore, but True Blood can still conquer Sunday for HBO.

The vampire drama once again led Sunday night in the key demographic score. Meanwhile, Falling Skies took a drop but still stayed near the top of the Sunday night rankings, Under the Dome continued to rise, Being Human stayed low, and Continuum had another good Friday night.
