Not interested. More True Blood and Big Love, less comedy.

And Jason Schwartzman? Reeeeally not interested.

HBO will soon give the big three little two networks a run for their money in ratings. It already kills them in qulity

Not a hard prediction to make that these shows aren't going to bring back Soprano-level audiences to HBO.

Given how low the quality is on NBC (and CW) it's not saying all that much, but ratings-wise, HBO is doing much worse than it used to do and has been under-performing badly for the past 5 or so years.

Their reliance on shows that are considered "hip and edgy" by the Hollywood cognoscenti has failed to elicit a positive response with actual viewers.

The "quality" of HBO's series is really more hype than reality.

Anything that gives me Jason Schwartzman and Zach Galifianakis will definitely have me tuning in! The other show doesn't sound that promising, but "Bored to Death" sounds awesome.

My bold prediction is that you will be one of the few tuning in. ;)
