HBO has set second-season premiere dates for the cult comedies "Bored to Death" and "Eastbound & Down."
"Bored to Death" and "Eastbound & Down" will return on Sunday, Sept. 26, creating a 10 p.m. block of under-watched comedic acquired tastes.
"Bored to Death" stars Jason Schwartzman as a Brooklyn writer who moonlights as a private detective while getting derailed in his efforts to write a second novel. Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis co-star in the comedy, which picked up an Emmy nomination for its main title design.
If it seems like a long time since "Eastbound & Down" was on the air, that's probably because it's been a long time since "Eastbound & Down" was on the air. The last new episode of the comedy, which features Danny McBride as a former major league baseball wild-man trying to make it back to The Show, aired back in March of 2009.
A long-time member of the TCA Board and a longer-time blogger of "American Idol," Dan Fienberg writes about TV, except for when he writes about movies or sometimes writes about the Red Sox. But never music. He would sound stupid talking about music.
