After the jump:
Following what is becoming regular practice on premium cable regarding super-hot new shows, after just one episode HBO  announced that it has renewed Boardwalk Empire for a second season. The show premiered to a not-too-shabby 4.8 million viewers on Sunday night. The debut episode was the largest premiere on the network since the March 2004 premiere of “Deadwood” (which had “The Sopranos” as lead-in):

“All the ingredients aligned for this one, from Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson’s initial pitch, to Martin Scorsese’s enormous contributions as director and executive producer, to the genius of Terry Winter and the expertise of Tim Van Patten, to a stellar cast led by Steve Buscemi,” said Lombardo. “The response from the media and our viewers has been nothing short of amazing.”

Including repeats at 10:15 and 11:30 p.m., the episode was watched by a combined 7.1 million viewers.
