After just a few episodes, HBO has renewed Bored to Death for another season. The literary show is a private detective fantasy adapted from a McSweeney’s story by Jonathan Ames, starring Jason Schwartzman and Ted Danson.
So far, the critics have dug the show. The NY Times called it “best new comedy of the season” and the New Yorker wrote: “In the HBO series, Ames has combined his writing self with his performing self and created something that is about ego without seeming egotistical.” Any GalleyCat readers watching the show?

According to a Seattle PI report: “The pickup comes days after the show saw a ratings high of 1.1 million on Sunday, when it followed Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s Seinfeld reunion episode. Since its Sept. 20 debut, Bored to Death’s pilot has been seen by 4.1 million viewers with repeats factored in.” (Via Sarah Weinman)
