HBO's freshman series Looking has been renewed, Variety reports:
“Looking” premiered last month to a small audience, but has grown its audience with each of its last three episodes. The pickup comes as HBO sorts out its comedy slate with a renewal last week for “Getting On,” and cancellations after maiden seasons for comedies “Hello Ladies” and “Family Tree.”
While the show started out with small-ish audiences, the average audience is now up to 519K live viewers. But where the show really shows it's support is in "gross views." When you factor in all original run views, previews, On Demand and HBO Go, the average weekly viewership is up to 2million.
