    I think this new show is going to be a hit. They were filming on my block (Ave. A and other parts of East Village) a few months ago. Here is the 1st episode. HBO sunday nights

    maybe.. especially with all the NYC famosa making cameos just like entourage...

    except you can cover all the different types of people like artists ect.. not just movie stars like entourage.... this might be a thing where people from NYC get addicted to it...

    If it's on HBO, plays hip-hop between dialogue and has young people, it will be a hit. HBO has an obsession with using the same people over and over. Some of the characters seem lameishly similar to Entourage. I don't have HBO anymore, but would probably watch it if it was online.

    Pilot of Entourage:

    "grounded" character part of a group of friends, obsessing about an ex
    Short "ghetto" friend who talks like he's from the hood but really isn't
    hip music, drugs, alcohol

    Looks like they're planning on ending Entourage soon and want to recapture the audience with the same shit.

    watched the pilot -- looks good. I also agree that NYC 20-somethings will eat this shit up.

    I saw a couple of trailers for this show and thought it might be worth watching. Has it already premiered--if not, when?

    Not as corny as a painting of New Yorkers for New Yorkers would be...

    It wasn't that bad.

    It's not Californication, though.

    I watched the pilot and it looked cool. It had its funny moments. I'll give it a couple of episodes before passing judgment.
