HBO picks up 'Eastbound & Down' and 'Bored to Death' for a third season

McBride Looks like Kenny [you know what word belongs here] Powers just scored another [you know what word belongs here] home run.

On Wednesday, HBO announced that it has renewed "Eastbound & Down" for a third season, along with the Jonathan Ames' private-detective series "Bored to Death." This completes the network's Sunday night lineup next season, because HBO already picked up "Boardwalk Empire."

While neither "Eastbound" nor "Bored" is a big hit -- both series' ratings hover below the 2-million mark -- both have devoted cult followings. Personally, we're looking forward to adding more one-liners to Kenny Powers Sound Clips, which we visit "on the reg."

Seems about right, these two suckfests are will continue to be inflicted upon us, while Big Love will end. I think my subscription to HBO will probably end with Big Love. Where's the content? What's the point?

Suckfest? Eastbound is hilarious...it just might not be for every demographic, that's all.
