HBO Cancels Three Comedies

 has officially cancelled three of their comedies, two in their third year and one in their sophomore.

'Hung,' 'Bored to Death' and 'How to Make it in America' have all been cancelled. Of the three shows that were cancelled, 'Hung' had the largest audience. The series starring Thomas Jane as a well-endowed high school teacher who makes a living as a male prostitute, averaged 3.9 million viewers. However, that was down 44% from the 6.9 million garnered during the second season.

Second-year series 'How to Make it in America' and the third-year 'Bored to Death' drew an identical 2.3 million apiece, each down about 25% from their respective previous seasons. 

This comes as no surprise considering HBO has already green lit four new comedy series for 2012. Among the new comedy series HBO has arriving in the new year are 'Girls' starring Lena Dunham, 'Veep' with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 'Life's Too Short' with Ricky Gervais and 'Angry Boys.'
