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?

    Cancelling this show was a **** idea! This show was fantastic and if you want to blame something for the low ratings you should blame your advertising dept. I only heard of this show recently from a friend (never once saw a commercial) and watched all 3 seasons straight through. I loved it and would have definitely watched it when it was on television had i known it existed then. HBO screwed themselves on this one!

    This sucks!! I’ve been waiting for Hung to come back this show is hilarious! Hopefully HBO reconsiders and decides to do a season 4 giving closure.

    WtF…do they factor DVR and TiVo in their ratings. We love this show but could not watch when they kids were home. I got HBO for this show and True blood….I would rather True blood get cancelled than HUNG…omg they could at least doing a closing episode to tie up the loose ends…this sucks. Just left us hanging

    I’ve been waiting and waiting for news about Hung, I finally had to look it up. And WTF do I find it’s *&%(^@! gone! ! ! That’s just not right esp. when there’s other crap that’s still on that’s not even worth watching! ! ! HBO has made a major mistake. I’m not sure where they got their numbers from but I demand a recount!! ! ! ! !

    I am so sad! I didn’t know Hung was cancelled and have been sitting here wondering when it was returning. I loved this show- so original and fresh!
