It may be the hottest show on cable, but HBO is trying to capitalize on the success of True Blood by selling reruns to commercial cable networks.

Considering 12 million viewers tune in to watch every week, it shouldn't be too much of a problem - except maybe for the gruesome and sexy content!

HBO is hoping to sell each episode for $800,000. And that is a hell of a lot of money to have them cut out all the juicy parts!

Would U watch True Blood on basic cable?!

  1. 1

    CTV here in canada showed The Sopranos and The Osbournes uncut.

    They're going cut everything out of it, the sex, swearing, some of the killings. So is it really worth watching ? could be smart, the people that do watch it, will want to see more and order HBO, either that or watch it online, like most people do. :)

    NO THANK YOU

    @duelstar thats because Canada rocks.



  4. 4

    We get the uncensored episodes on basic television in the UK.

  6. 6

    Hell to the NO



  7. 7

    it wouldn't be the same! they would have to cut so much from the show for all the nudity and language!



  8. 8

    I'll keep my DVD's thank ya very much. (and guys from Canada, and the UK- it's because you don't have the censorship we do here! lol)



  9. 9

    no way!!! they totally ruined sex and the city when they put it on tbs!!!

    the juicy parts are what makes true blood so awesome. people would watch it on CTV but they wouldnt be as satisfied. im sure there are some cable stations that will play it uncut.

    Fun fact: the FCC doesn't regulate satellite and cable exclusive channels. As long as it's not hardcore porn, they can choose to broadcast whatever they want. All of the censoring that goes on is self-inflicted to keep a small percentage of viewers happy.

    I would watch it simply because I don't have/want/need/can't afford HBO. I don't care that the show would be edited because I buy the seasaon sets anyway.



  13. 13

    Won't even be interesting to watch. It will be ruined just like The L Word on LOGO.



  14. 14

    No I would def not watch this on cable TV…the sex is the best part of this show…I know it gets me all hawt and bothered! HA



  15. 15

    If you cut out everything that was 'gruesome' or had to deal with sex and nudity, you'd have a 10min show…maybe, depending on the episode. So no, I'll keep my HBO thank you.

    True Blood wont be the same without the juicy parts.
