HBO hanging on thanks to Entourage

Quirky opinionated article (see here) about the possible future happenings on current TV shows.

HBO on a downward spiral? Talks about the failing HBO with the end of great series such as The Sopranos and The Wire, hanging on by the mere fact they still have Entourage. I’ve always thought HBO had some outstanding series made with big budgets and cinema quality execution.

But to be honest when you are up that high, there has to be a time when it simply doesn’t produce. Here’s an interesting quote from SFGate (see above link):

…”Flight of the Conchords” is a cult hit and “Big Love” is an underappreciated gem, but they are not the kinds of series that will make people shell out for premium cable prices. “Entourage” still is, but HBO clearly needs to build around its success…

Kind of nice to see Entourage being appreciated in this long lull.
