HBO renews 'Hung' for Season 3

Comedy has performed modestly for the network

HBO has picked up sophomore comedy series "Hung" for a third season.

The network has ordered another 10 episodes to air next year.

The pickup wasn't entirely expected. The show has performed modestly for the network, roughly matching "Entourage," and has dipped slightly from its first-season average.

With "Entourage" airing a short six-episode final season next summer, however, letting "Hung" hang around another year gives HBO a familiar face to pair with a new comedy.
