While they never really achieved breakout status, Bored to Death and Hung certainly had their fans (How to Make It in America, I’m not so sure about). But business is business, and with the upcoming tsunami of new shows HBO has in development, it should come as no surprise that these three got the axe.

Let’s not grieve the passing of these shows (though I heard that Bored to Death was pretty great). Rather, let’s harvest their financial organs and give life to new shows, perhaps A Visit From The Goon Squad, a Doc Holliday series, or a medical/mafia drama from Leo DiCaprio. Sure, they might not give us comfort right away, but in time, we can learn to love them. Perhaps you can take solace in the fact that Enlightened got picked up for another season in the same announcement? Circle of life.

In the meantime, I dunno, let’s watch Arrested Development on DVD until Justified comes back. Cool?

HBO’s ‘Bored to Death’ Season 2 Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/hbos-bored-to-death-season-2-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/hbos-bored-to-death-season-2-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 In the HBO comedy "Bored to Death," Jason Schwartzman plays a struggling writer who is trying his hand at detective work. As a struggling writer myself, the show inspired me to do a little detective work of my own. And as luck would have it, my keen detective skills helped me find this "Bored to Death" Season 2 trailer featuring Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis. I also found a Helen Keller Simulator and some "Night Court" fanfiction, but I figured you'd be more impressed with the trailer. Watch the "Bored to Death" Season 2 trailer after the jump.
