Presumably, “Boardwalk Empire” season 3 will also be on in the fall, and HBO still has to schedule Aaron Sorkin’s drama about cable TV news, so “Treme” could wind up airing on a different night, after all. We’ll see. David Simon has told me and Dave that ideally the show would run four seasons, but that’ll be up to HBO to decide. The ratings for the first two seasons weren’t particularly strong, and at the moment it’s a show that exists because HBO likes it and wants to be in business with Simon. Hopefully, whenever it airs in the fall, they’ll still feel that way about it.
Treme season 3 is coming some time in the fall, but no one knows when exactly. I know most people, including Chris, have been down on the show, but I thoroughly enjoy it. Is it one of my favorites? No, everything can’t be Breaking Bad and Mad Men. But I would still pick it over several other current shows I watch.
