Watch the New How to Make It in America Trailer

I'm not going to pretend to know the first thing about HBO's How to Make It in America. Which means it might be a totally awesome show that I have entirely missed the boat (Staten Island Ferry?) on! On the other hand, it might be an unbearable, East Coast-icized version of Entourage, from the producers of Entourage, that has managed to produce zero buzz or critical accolades and yet still managed to somehow score a second season. I really don't know! All I have to go on is this trailer for Season Two, in which the whole gang is back for "more of the same antics," The Hollywood Reporter writes, in this "half-hour comedy."

Okay! So now we're getting somewhere. It's a comedy. But then why does it look like a rejected Tommy Hilfiger campaign for a men's cologne called "Sidewalk?" Again, you're asking the wrong guy. To its credit, however, it does succeed in making me hate my former home, NYC, as much as Entourage makes me hate my current home, LA. Aw, who am I kidding. LA is way worse. Coming this fall, everyone! Fill up your Metrocards and be there.

    I just saw the first season about 2 weeks ago and it's pretty good. It's as if you combined the feel of Entourage with fashion and a good story line. I came across it on my HBO Go, before that I heard nothing about it. I say if you can, give it a watch, it's only 30 mins. It isn't boring to say the least... On a different note I do believe it is unprofessional to spurt out opinions about a show without seeing an episode. Even if one was forced to write the article, do a little watching.

    Do you realize how incompetent it makes you look to write an article on something you know nothing about?

    It's not an "article." It's a brief impression of a preview of the second season of a show that I have an irrational hatred of without ever having seen.

    DOPE! Can't wait! Next and hopefully better replacement of Entourage.

    I thought it was canceled...When is Enlightened coming on. That's what I want to see.

    I have ridiculous hatred for this show for no reason at all.
