HBO’s “True Blood” topped cable in time-shifted viewership (live+7) differential during the week of Jul 12-18, delivering a 2.69mln differential to emerge victorious for a 2nd consecutive week. USA’s triumvirate of “Burn Notice” (2.63mln), “Royal Pains” (2.53mln) and the “Covert Affairs” pilot (2.40mln) couldn’t quite keep pace. Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch” (2.38mln) was next, followed by USA’s “White Collar” (2.27mln) and TNT’s “Rizzoli & Isles” (2.00mln). TNT’s pair of “The Closer” (2.15mln) and “Leverage” (1.78mln) joined Discovery Channel’s “After the Catch” (1.74mln) to complete the top 10. (Data provided by Nielsen)
