We have been told that this is the final season of "Eastbound & Down," that come the end of these eight episodes the tale of Kenny Powers will be over.  Of course, if you have watched Kenny Powers at all, ever, you know that over the course of eight episodes he can wreak a ridiculous amount of havoc.  The trick is that we have no idea exactly what direction the tornado is going to go in.  That is the enjoyment of the series -- you think the destruction is headed in one direction and then it turns out it's all over the place.

    We seem to recall hearing that the third season of "Eastbound & Down" would be the last and then, magically, a fourth season happened and we couldn't have been happier about it.  The question is whether this fourth season, which has been called the last season, will really be the last season.  We just don't know at this point and we don't believe that Kenny dying tonight would actually preclude a fifth season.  But, more episodes or no, we'll certainly be watching tonight.

    It is our understanding that this third season of "Eastbound & Down" is the series' last.  Now, don't think that means that there will under no circumstances be more "Eastbound & Down," it's just that at the moment we've been told that this is it.  One should, as James Bond taught us, never say never again.  But, for the foreseeable future, this is it, so where will the season end?  What will become of our beloved Kenny Powers?  We can't quite say that we know, but we are exceptionally curious to find out.  After all, he's Kenny "Foul Word" Powers.

    We want to say something really strong and moderately foul about how great it is that Kenny Powers is back.  However, we like to think of ourselves as kid and parent friendly and one of those groups--at minimum--won't be happy if we drop a few curses.  Well, it's not that the group(s) won't be happy, but they won't be happy that they group knows that we dropped those four letter words.  So, in conclusion, Kenny Powers is back and if you want to hear how awesome that'll be, we're quite sure that he's going to tell you tonight.  Repeatedly.  After all, he's Kenny "Something Moderately Foul" Powers.

    HBO's love-it-or-hate-it comedy about a washed up baseball player (Danny McBride) trying to get back to the big-time has its first season finale on Sunday (March 22).

    At least one HitFix staffer is in the "Love it!" camp, so we'll join in in being a bit sad that the comedy's first season has lasted only a half-dozen episodes and that renewal has yet to be announced.
