Looks like Kenny [you know what word belongs here] Powers just scored another [you know what word belongs here] home run.

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.’
