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