HBO giveth and HBO taketh! The cabler has decided to keep Enlightened on its roster, but nixes Hung, Bored to Death and How to Make It In America.

Was there any rhyme or reason to axing three shows, while ordering a second season of another, or did HBO just throw a dart and see where it landed? Oh, who are we kidding? They knew what they were doing when they ordered more of the Golden Globe nominated series Enlightened. The others are debatable. 

Laura Dern and Enlightened have a lot to celebrate this Christmas season.

First, Dern received a Golden Globe nomination, as did the show. Then, HBO announced it's renewing the show for a second season. 

We're going with the critics' love and award show glory for the reasoning behind keeping this one, because the ratings weren't always a glowing example of success. Yes, they were okay, but not amazing. 

According to TVLine, the show's season one finale drummed up a mere 263,000 viewers. 

Laura Dern recently told TVLine she was "hopeful" the show would be renewed and that she had "never felt [HBO] waver and imply that they wouldn't be interested in [a second season], even though they haven't given a formal announcement."

Shall we start calling her Laura Dern the psychic? She clearly saw something coming we did not immediately see.

This news comes right on the heels of Thomas Jane receiving a Golden Globe nomination for his role in Hung
