I still haven't watched a single episode of this yet. So little time with a lot to watch, read, listen to etc.

Regardless, despite the fact that little old me doesn't watch the show (although, from what I've read, I'm certainly not the only one not watching the series, which is said to be down in viewership compared to last season, with other relatively young HBO properties attracting audiences in greater numbers), the cable TV network has decided to pick up David Simon's critically-acclaimed drama series Treme for a third season.

Though, if I recall, didn't The Wire go through a similar ratings struggle, yet HBO decided in favor of holding onto quality exclusive content, over ratings numbers...?
