HBO renews 'Bored to Death,' 'Eastbound & Down'
The oddball comedy pairing of "Bored to Death" and "Eastbound & Down" appears to have paid dividends.
According to media reports, HBO has renewed both comedies for third seasons.
Airing after "Boardwalk Empire" on Sundays, both "Bored to Death" and "Eastbound & Down" have improved on their first season viewership numbers, though both comedies remain acquired tastes more than mainstream breakouts.
"Bored to Death" stars Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis, while "Eastbound" stars Danny McBride.
