Hung: Cancelled by HBO; No Season Four

HungRay Drecker may be very popular with the ladies but HBO doesn’t want a fourth season of his TV series. The pay-for-view channel has cancelled Hung after 30 episodes and three seasons on the air.

Hung stars Thomas Jane as a struggling Detroit high school baseball coach and divorced father. He resorts to male prostitution to take advantage of his natural “endowments.” The show’s cast includes Jane Adams, Anne Heche, Eddie Jemison, Rebecca Creskoff, Gregg Henry, Charlie Saxton, and Sianoa Smit-McPhee.

This past season, Hung averaged a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.02 million viewers. That’s way down from last season (1.3 in the demo with 2.46 million), which had declined from the 2009 numbers.

The defacto series finale of Hung aired on December 4th and attracted just a 0.4 rating and 930,000 viewers.

HBO has also cancelled Bored to Death and How to Make It in America but has chosen to renew Enlightened, the newest and lowest-rated of the four.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that Hung has been cancelled, that there won’t be a fourth season?

Just watched all 3 seasons of Hung and I am extremely disappointed to see that their will not be a season 4?????? This was a great and funny show. Just started to see the show coming together and was really looking forward to see what happens next. Real bummer.

True Blood “jumped the shark” already with pompous vampires and everyone some kind of supernatura “thing” now. Boring and getting unwatchable. Hungvwas still interesting and funny. Storyline was coming along. But look at what happened to Deadwood. No proper end. Network tv mostly trys to do a finale for a multi season show. Screwed pooch on this one.
