Well, great. Mr. Milch, can we get our summer Sunday nights back? HBO’s cancelled John From Cincinnati, which probably was the sensible thing to do. But with so much unresolved and so many hours trying to parse the plot from the “I don’t know Butchie instead”s, we’re feeling the burn. Anybody make it to the series finalé? Care to explain it? (And according to that CNN article, HBO has “yet to decide the fate of its other summer freshman series, the comedy Flight of the Conchords.” Perhaps a marathon is in order.)
Despite the missteps and confusion over at HBO, all is not lost for the once mighty cable network. They still have Entourage which, cartoonish as it can be, is up for a Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy. Still counts for something, right? And like any show in love with its own hip factor, Entourage is getting a soundtrack release, courtesy of Downtown/Atlantic (which would help explain why Cold War Kids and Gnarls are on it; what no Art Brut?). Full tracklist after the jump.
