The news is no surprise for "Entourage," which snagged a bunch of Emmy nominations and routinely gets about 3 million viewers the first time each new episode airs. But I was a little worried about my "Conchords." References to "Business Time" and "Robots" have become standard among my friends, and when I was at the TCA press tour, it seemed like every critic in the country was crowing about the show. But I still couldn't tell how widespread its reach was; Zap2it says its premiere got about a million viewers, but I haven't heard about the ratings since then. Still, they must be good enough if HBO is continuing the series, which the network's press release today called "a show to watch."
One more bit of good news from the press release: The Conchords plan to follow up their recent EP with a full-length album in January 2008. I think that's worthy of a binary solo.
