HBO Just Cancelled Every Show I Watch!



I’m putzing around Twitter, and I see an announcement that stops me in my tracks:

HBO cancels ‘Bored to Death,’ ‘Hung,’ ‘How to Make It in America’

I hoped that this was just another Internet rumor, but Bryan Greenberg confirmed the bad news on his Twitter account.

With a slate of upcoming series, the cable network decided to clean house, making room on its schedule by ending the runs of the three low-rated comedies. (Never mind the fact that they kept Enlightened, which drew even lower numbers)

So I went ahead and cancelled my HBO subscription, as these were the only three shows I watched. (I was a devoted Entourage fan, but that ended over the summer)

    Those were the only 3 shows you watched? What no Boardwalk Empire? What are you, a communist??

    I could never get into Boardwalk Empire, no interest in that genre. My 75-year old grandfather LOVES it, but he grew up back then. 🙂

    The Sopranos was the only 1-hour series on HBO that I watched.

    I couldn’t get enough of Boardwalk…I felt like a woman with that show. I couldn’t wait for the next episode to air. I’ve never been like that with a TV show before.

    Now, this begs the question of what are they going to replace those shows with?

    “Bored To Death” was a great show. Season 1 and 2 were hilarious.

    Showtime is where it is at. Homeland may be best show out there right now, and Dexter is still pretty good. I recommend Homeland to anyone who hasn’t seen it. The first season just ended last Sunday.

      Yeah, I used to watch Weeds and Diary of a Call Girl when I had Showtime.. I hear Dexter is real good, but I’ve got to pick up the past seasons so I can catch up.
