'Enlightened' Renewed; 'Hung,' 'Bored To Death,' 'How To Make It In America' Canceled By HBO

HBO has renewed Englightened for a second season, while at the same time it has canceled Hung, Bored to Death and How To Make It In America.

The ins and outs of lower tier HBO show renewals and cancellations are completely off my radar screen. Their viewerships/ratings are mostly microscopic, and since they often have little to do with viewership or ratings, HBO's reasons for doing what they do are often inscrutable.

Ted Danson has moved on to CSI so that was expected, but Bored to Death wasn't that good anyway.
Hung wasn't going anywhere, it was good but not great. haven't seen the other 2 shows though.

(PS, can a mod rename this to just 'HBO' ?)

Turns out Luck wont be returning for a second season after all. HBO has cancelled the show due to 3 horses being injured and put down in the production of the first and second season. Its unknown how much of season 2 was completed but i doubt those episodes will ever be seen now.

was just thinking about HBO lately and have noticed a few more shows are ending.

Boardwalk Empire will end this year with Season 5 with a final 8 episodes

True Blood ends soon with Season 7

Newsroom ends with Season 3

Eastbound & Down ended recently with Season 4, same with Treme.

I mean what is there left really besides Veep, Game of Thrones & True Detective, cause I haven't heard too much about newer shows. and I mean high quality shows, with great acting, cast and high production values.

are there others ended recently or soon?
