Fans of the show critics deemed to be the next Entourage will be saddened to know that HBO canceled ‘How To Make It In America’ on Tuesday along with ‘Hung’ & ‘Bored To Death’.

Of the three shows that were canceled, “Hung” had the largest audience. Series, starring Thomas Jane as a well-endowed high school teacher who makes a living as a male prostitute, averaged 3.9 million viewers — including multiple linear telecasts, DVR and On Demand usage — in its third season. However, that was down 44% from the 6.9 million garnered during the second season.

The skein was created by exec producers Colette Burson and Dmitry Lipkin. Other exec producers are Scott Stephens, Alexander Payne, Michael Rosenberg, Noreen Halpern and John Morayniss.

Second-year series “How to Make It in America” and third-year skein “Bored to Death” drew an identical 2.3 million apiece, each down about 25% from their respective previous seasons.

“How to Make It in America,” about a pair of Manhattan twentysomethings looking to make their way in the fashion business, was created by Ian Edelman, who exec produced with Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Julian Farino, Rob Weiss and Jill Soloway.
