'Bored To Death' Canceled: A Eulogy

Alex Moaba | Posted 02.20.2012 | TV
Alex Moaba

"Bored To Death" was canceled Tuesday by HBO, swept out in a holiday housecleaning that also took "How To Make It In America" and "Hung." I can't blame the network for putting "How to Make It" and "Hung" down. While the former improved marginally in its second season, it was laughably predictable and inevitably doomed by the "Entourage" shadow. And once the male hooker novelty wore off, "Hung" was just kind of taking up space.
