"The pickup comes days after the show saw a ratings high of 1.1 million on Sunday, when it followed Curb Your Enthusiasm's Seinfeld reunion episode. Since its Sept. 20 debut, Bored to Death's pilot has been seen by 4.1 million viewers with repeats factored in."
the text on wikipedia reads: "HBO has renewed the comedy for a second season. The pickup came days after the show saw a ratings high of 1.1 million on Sunday, when it followed Curb Your Enthusiasm's Seinfeld reunion episode. Since its Sept. 20 debut, Bored to Death's pilot has been seen by 4.1 million viewers with repeats factored in." M8gen (talk) 02:14, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
- This is Wikipedia. Just about everyone can edit just about any article. Be bold and fix things that are wrong. Here, I'll show you how. --Snaxe/fow (talk) 05:03, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
- Agreed. I know M8gen (talk) may not have been very active, but anyone spotting any copyright violation should remove or paraphrase immediately without fear of repercussions. Better we have paraphrased referenced content than lift directly from a copyrighted source. The issue was resolved soon after this was highlighted. Rayman60 (talk) 02:04, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Does anyone else think this section isn't particularly useful? This section says that Zack G. "made loose reference" to the show and references the IMDb quotes page for The Hangover. That's not particularly interesting unless we know what quote it was exactly; I can't find any reference to Bored to Death in The Hangover's quotes page.
Basically the same thing again with the claim that the show's been mentioned in The Office. Again, if it's not shown exactly what was said about Bored I don't see how this is of particular interest. And, it's not sourced.
I'm thinking of removing the section, what does everyone think? Or, if someone can expand it to show what particularly was said about Bored to Death in The Hangover and The Office, that would be cool; I tried and can't. - Jmartinsson (talk) 16:18, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
It is actually Three Men and A Baby they are referencing - He states that it stars "Ted Danson, Magnum P.I and that Jewish actor"
Easy to see how someone could have confused it with Bored to Death (if in the reality of the film it was Magnum P.I instead of Zach, but it should be taken down). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 05:14, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
