At today's Television Critics Association Press Tour, HBO announced they they have renewed their entire Sunday night lineup! This means a 3rd season for True Blood , a 7th season for Entourage and a sophomore season for Hung . On True Blood: "I think one of the reasons we brought it back as soon as we did is we always felt it felt like a summer show...so the hope is to bring it back next summer." - Michael Lombardo, president, programming group and west coast operations On all 3 series: "The size of these shows has really broken through into the popular culture in a way we haven't seen before." - HBO co-president Richard Plepler Which renewal are you most psyched by? Was I the only one starting to wish that Entourage might come to a conclusion? Source: SciFiWire

I was perusing the HBO website and noticed a fun contest for Hung that they are currently running: Pimp Ray and Win 10K HBO is challenging you to create a short text ad (just a 25 character title and a 100 character body, so all in all less characters than your standard tweet) - it would presumably go in a newspaper's classified section - that promotes Ray's "tool" in a clever and non-illegal sounding fashion. No image creation necessary - you're only allowed to select one of their pre-selected images. HBO will feature the best ads on Facebook where a winner will be voted on. Enter here: Pimp Ray and Win 10K Hung airs Sundays at 10:00PM on HBO.

New HBO comedy Hung is airing an all new episode entitled "Strange Friends" this Sunday, July 19th at 10/9c. A description of the episode: "Ray's fortunes sink further when his nosy neighbor accuses him of public indecency. Fed up with Jessica's maternal meddling, Damon and Darby yearn to go back to their dad's, but progress on Ray's home-repair front remains stalled. Likewise, Ray and Tanya's frayed partnership seems to be dead in the water - until a last-minute proposal resurrects their dreams."

Much to its relief, HBO has finally discovered that there's life after " The Sopranos " and " Sex and the City ." The pay cable network, which has struggled to replace those signature series, had a strong week with some new hits. The vampire series " True Blood ," in its second season, had a series high of 3.9 million viewers on Sunday. Add in on-demand viewing, DVR viewing and extra showings, and the average episode of the series is being seen by 10.8 million viewers this season, according to Nielsen Media Research.
