HBO: From Hitmen to Hitless?


Has HBO lost the magic? That question has bedeviled Time Warner's premium cable channel ever since The Sopranos ended its seven-season run in June and ascended to rerun heaven. Time and again, HBO has failed to deliver a follow-up hit. Its greatest hope, John from Cincinnati, so perplexed viewers with its attempts to meld the zen of surfing with gnostic Christian themes that HBO pulled the plug.

And it's telling that HBO, supercautious about putting programs online for free, did exactly that to create buzz for In Treatment, which follows the travails of a psychologist and has been on air only since late January.

Something had to give.
