HBO Signs on For Third Round of Treme

May 13, 2011

No one can say that TV execs were bored today. Hot on the heels of a slew of cancellations, renewals and pickups, comes news that HBO has decided to pick up the Big Show that Could aka TREME for a third season. Averaging roughly 1 million viewers per episode (far below the likes of Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire and True Blood), the  drama brings HBO something far more valuable: prestige. Interestingly enough, it also didn’t bring awards – which is one of the most egregious errors on the part of all organizations currently giving awards for excellence in television.

Nevertheless, today is a good day. TREME was renewed for this season based on the strength of the pilot and then immediately began losing viewers. For those of us who stuck around and witnessed the marvel that is TREME, we’re all winners.
