You have to wonder about HBO. The network announced at Thursday’s Television Critics Association press tour that it has already ordered a fourth season of the raunch-fest show Girls even before the third season has aired.
The season two finale last year only drew 632,000 viewers, a 37% slide from the one million who watched the season one finale.
Unfortunately for HBO, it has a social agenda to maintain. A little open-mindedness might help it in its coffers; as has been pointed out, The Bible miniseries on History Channel had 10.8 million viewers for a single telecast.
