The season’s penultimate episode of HBO’s Truer Blood was last night’s most-tweeted-about TV show, topping everything else on both cable and network television with 163,121 tweets. Viewers learned that Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwantlen) is neither dead nor a vampire, and will live to see next week’s season finale.

Other cable shows to make Twitter’s top 10 the season’s sixth episode of Breaking Bad and such reality fare as Married to Jonas and Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
