True Blood returned for its fourth season last night, introducing a number of new storylines to viewers. To wit:

Bill is the King of Louisiana, Eric is a new home owner, Jason is stuck in an icebox, Arlene is worried about her baby, Lafayette is mixed up with witches and time moves slower in fairy land than it does on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Humans also don't need to fear vampires, as Eric explained humorously in this PSA:

What did you think of the premiere?

There are many reasons to watch True Blood: Action, gore, suspense and sex being foremost among them.

But the latest issue of GQ gives fans of this HBO hit another reason to tune in when the series returns on June 26. Here it is:

Joe Manganiello in GQ

That's Joe Manganiello, who plays the werewolf Alcide and who has been made a series regular.

How did he get so ripped? Easy, the actor says: the script called for it.

"If Alcide was described as weighing 300 pounds with a comb-over and missing his front teeth, that's what I would look like," Manganiello tells the magazine.

They're hot. They're sexy. They're undead.

And they're covering the latest issue of Rolling Stone.

True Blood stars Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer bare almost all for this iconic magazine, which really should come as no surprise to anyone that watches this HBO smash.

It features more gore than the White House between 1992 and 2000; and more nudity than the movie collection of Montana Fishburne. Check out the show's main trio of sexy stars below.

Just two episodes into the third season of True Blood, HBO has renewed this drama for a fourth season.

With ratings for its premiere last week up 38% from the opening episode of June 2009, President of HBO Programming Michael Lombardo said it was an easy decision to make.

A True Blood Poster

“The new season of True Blood is off to a terrific start, as enthusiasm for this unique show continues to build among both subscribers and critics. We’re looking forward to more chills from Alan Ball and his gifted team next year.

"I am beyond thrilled to be able to continue working with this amazing cast and crew. This is the most fun I have ever had.”

The same can be said for viewers each week. Men are treated to blood, violence and breasts, while women often see Alexander Skarsgard nude. Both genders win!

Television viewers have quite the conundrum on Sunday night.

On one hand, they could watch a scary, scripted show about characters who will go to extreme lengths to get what they want - on the other, they could watch True Blood!

Disick and Kourtney

Indeed, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian return to take over Miami on their nauseating E! reality show, while HBO premieres season three of the most violent, suspenseful, sex-filled drama on TV. Which will you tune in for?

Perhaps this Tale of the Tape comparison can help you decide...

1. MAIN VILLAIN...
True Blood: Eric Northman.
Kourtney and Khloe: Scott Disick.
Edge: True Blood.

2. CHARACTER WE FEEL MOST SORRY FOR...
True Blood: Tara.
Kourtney and Khloe: Mason Dash.
Edge: Kourtney and Khloe.

3. RECURRING BEAUTY...
True Blood: The Queen of Louisiana.
Kourtney and Khloe: Kim Kardashian.
Edge: Kourtney and Khloe.

4. BEST BODY BELONGS TO...
True Blood: Ryan Kwanten.
Kourtney and Khloe: Kourtney.
Edge: True Blood.

5. MOST SCRIPTED FIGHT...
True Blood: Vampires vs. werewolves.
Kourtney and Khloe: THIS.
Edge: Kourtney and Khloe.

THE VERDICT: With a last-minute victory in the category of most scripted, outlandish scenario, Kourtney and Khloe pull the upset! They win this Tale of the Tape by a final score of 3-2. But True Blood characters can take comfort in this fact:

Many of them may wanna rip open our flesh, but we'd still prefer to hang out with them any day of the week.
