Big tent folds as HBO cancels 'Carnivale'


Big tent folds as HBO cancels 'Carnivale'


By Andrew WallensteinWed May 11, 8:01 AM ET



HBO has pulled up stakes on "Carnivale," opting not to order a third season of the circus-set Dust Bowl drama.

Prospects for a "Carnivale" renewal have appeared bleak since the sophomore season wrapped in March; the show didn't increase its viewership, and series creator/executive producer Daniel Knauf already signed on to produce a series for the rival Showtime cable channel.

"We have decided not to renew 'Carnivale,"' said Carolyn Strauss, president of entertainment at HBO, in a statement. "We feel the two seasons we had on the air told the story very well and we are proud of what everyone associated with the show has accomplished."

june 5th... it's going to be on mondays instead of sundays... which i think is a sin. im not sure why but i heard a rumor that they dont want to compete with desperate housewives... im having a hard time swallowing that cos i always thought hbo did their own thing.

the six feet under fans aren't exactly DH fans. i dont get it.

and carnivale

i really got into it this season. i wish they would've just wrapped up the story instead of leaving us on the edge of our seats and then never coming back.

i hope unscripted gets picked up again.

glad entourage is coming back.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

i've never seen an epi of DH, either. i wish the show would just go away... im tired of hearing about it.

I know that whole Monday thing pissed me off...it's like a slap in the face.

I'm so sad about Carnivale it was da bomb last season......I hate that they won't get to finish the story but I guess it wasn't a bad place to stop and they can always do a movie!

I raise my hand as someone who has never seen an episode of Desperate Housewives.

HBO has my Sundays all the way.

I heard what you heard about not wanting to compete with Desperate Housewives but that's because they are going to debut a new show at that time I do believe....and besides DH will be in repeats.

DEADWOOD is sooooooo good. However, I do understand about not being able to understand what they are saying.....that is why I always watch it with the close caption on.

i saw the guy who plays the sheriff [i think hes so hot ]and the writer on Dinner for Five on IFC... and it made me really want to get into deadwood. but i missed a large portion of the first season... so going into this one i was totally lost. then i missed an epi and had no idea what was going on. they are all still on my tivo, so maybe one day ill catch up.

i cant wait until the wire comes back on. did you even finish watching the last season? i remember you saying you missed the last few epis.

And about DH- it just cements why I like you and Love so much
hmmm, can you figure out what's going on by just watching an episode?.....in one word.....NO. It's kind of like The Wire in that way, very intricate. However, I think if you catch it from the first episode of the season then yes I think you can keep up..

I'm sure HBO onDemand is going to have all the back episodes.....I would definitely give it a try. I find it to be very humorous!

and the feeling's mutual....

No I haven't caught up on The Wire yet....they haven't put the epis back on onDemand....or at least the last time I checked they weren't there.

However I will definitely catch up as soon as I can or before the next season starts.
