Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis' cult comedy Bored to Death has been axed by TV bosses after three seasons.

Network officials announced the cancellations on Tuesday.

The scheduling gaps will be filled by a slew of new programs, including Dustin Hoffman's horseracing drama Lucky and Ricky Gervais' Life's Too Short.

Reacting to the news, How to Make It in America star Bryan Greenberg writes on, "Thank ...

Thomas Jane
Actor Thomas Jane has slammed ageism in society, insisting he's sick of having to dress like a youngster to remain relevant.

The 42-year-old actor is enjoying success in saucy U.S. hit Hung and has several movies in the works, but he is convinced it's becoming increasingly more difficult to land jobs as he ages.

And the star has slammed society's obsession with youth, insisting men of a certain age have to compromise to land good roles.

He tells the Huffington Post, "There's no socially-acceptable middle age. We have to lie about our age to get jobs, we have to dress the way we did in ...

It's been said that a hero is only as good as their antagonist. On HBO's Hung, that juicy role falls to actor Stephen Amell, who recently sat down with me to dish about the series.

Amell plays Jason, who is the chief competition of Hung's main character, Ray Drecker. He's got a winning smile but a lot more going on behind it. Read on to find out what's in store for his character in season three and what it's like being the allegedly bad guy, as well as what type of role Amell would love to play.

Hung fans should also check out my previous Q&A with Charlie Saxton (Damon Drecker).

Charlie Saxton
HBO's Hung has just started its third season - and before tonight's new episode (10 PM ET/PT), I caught up with star Charlie Saxton! Read on for Charlie's thoughts on his character Damon, his time in theatre, and the movie role he'd love to have...

We're two episodes into the third season of Hung. What can you say about what we can expect for Damon in season three?

Damon's kind of stepping out of the spotlight, if you will, because he's been getting himself into too many crazy situations. He's re-evaluating himself and figuring out what makes him happy. He and his sister [Darby] deci...

Thomas Jane has shocked fans by opening up about the lengths he'd go to eat when he was a homeless teenager in Los Angeles - he'd perform sexual favours for sandwich money.

The star, who currently plays a well-endowed male prostitute in TV drama "Hung," admits he can identify with his desperate character in the series - because he once offered up sex perks to eat.

He tells the Los Angeles Times, "When I was a kid out here in L.A., I was homeless, I didn't have any money and I was living in my car. I was 18. I wasn't averse to going down to Santa Monica Boulevard and letting a guy buy me a...

TV Sitcoms: The Laughs Are Dying

8/7/2009 11:53am EDT
Say what you will about "According To Jim", but it at least it had jokes. Yes, jokes. Remember those? The old set-up, punch line routine intended to make audiences laugh. They used to be a staple of television comedies. Laugh-track or no, comedy shows on television were once designed to simply elicit guffaws from the viewing audience, whether or not we heard them.

But today, the laughs are dying. And this isn't a "Parks and Recreation" kind of demise where the jokes are just bad. Instead, comedies have stopped making jokes altogether.

Consider the comedies on television this sum...

7/10/2009 9:25am EDT
"Hung," the new HBO series -- starring Thomas Jane as Ray, a middle aged high school basketball coach that feels he's lost everything so resorts to male prostitution because of his, well... no reason to shirk the facts with a well timed metaphor: the man has a large penis -- has just begun its first season on Sunday nights at 10 pm. We joined the husband and wife series creators -- Colette Burson and Dmitry Lipkin -- for a roundtable discussion (with other writers) as we asked them about the Detroit setting of the show.
