Sunday's premiere of Halt and Catch Fire was seen by 1.2 million people. What we DON'T know is how many people had already watched the premiere episode on all the available sneak peek platforms. I guess we'll have to wait and see how many people watch NEXT weeks 2nd episode do determine its success. Getting more confusing by the minute to track this stuff. 

Sunday's Game of Thrones was seen by 7.2 million viewers which ties their record. With the repeat airings 8.2 million viewers saw Tywin sentence his own son to death. 

Not a good hour for Kate Morgan, the prez gave her to Jack to run a covert mission and find this guy named Rask. In order for Jack's little plan to work, he had to knock her out, and put her in his trunk. She did it herself. Jammed the needle right into her own neck. Of course when Rask got her he had his goons begin the torture. She got strung up, cut, electrocuted and almost drilled (with a drill...not that). She must have gone to the Jack Bauer school of secret agents because she squeezed and killed one guy and was able to escape. MI-5, the James Bond guys were on the scene and messed everything up. Not sure where they took Jack or Rask at this point. Simone's crazy mother smacked her brother in the face and sent her to calm Naveed's sister down, but since Simone hasn't exactly been raised in a warm loving environment, she killed her instead. Pretty sure Mom will be pleased. Of course what would 24 be without the bad guy on the inside plot line? Now we just know who it is... Benjamin Bratt. Of course he is. There's ALWAYS a bad guy on the inside. Don't they vet these people? Check references? CTU's pretty bad at background checks from what I can tell in all my years of watching.

-If you watched the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on HBO last weekend, you got to see Dave Grohl in all his brilliance. Next up, Dave and the Foofighters are releasing a pretty interesting documentary on HBO. The documentary follows the making of the bands 8th studio album. Each song will be recorded at a different studio around the country and will incorporate local talent from the area. Dave did something very experimental with each song, he didn't write the lyrics until the last day of each session so that he could be inspired by the experience. Here's a sneak peek https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-z8A9P5ziA
