HBO Moves: John Has To Go Back To Cincinnati.. Or Was He From Space. HBO Please Keep Conchords

HBO hoped to replace Soprano's with some Deadwood-ish (same writer), left of centre action with John From Cincinnati. But, if you are going to take risks, it aint always going to work out. John is gone.

Back in the summer of 2004, we were trying to get people to watch Entourage. It was coupled with Ali G on HBO on a Sunday night. Couldnt get many to watch either... They only had an 8 episode run each. Now, BOOM and 'Niiiice' are part of conversations you hear in bars.

Entourage has a new partner on Sunday nights. And, hopefully they are here to stay as well. Flight of The Conchords were a stand up novelty band doing the comedy stages around the world. Now a la Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm, they have done a show loosely based on their own lives. Its crazy original. They will be walking down the street talking about the latest girl that dumped them (of course, they were never going out) and they will break out in song. Classic lyrics. This song was far and away the smash of the season:
