Although last year’s ratings drop might have caused this TV series to crash and burn on an ad-supported network, HBO has brought back its Crashing TV show for a third season. Does it have a chance of boosting viewership, or is the audience destined to remain small? Will Crashing be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned. **Status update below.
