Though HBO will be losing both True Blood and Boardwalk Empire after the shows air their final seasons this year, the network is clearing a couple of other programs off its schedule.  HBO has decided not to renew the comedies Hello Ladies and Family Tree for second seasons, per THR.  The network will be giving Hello Ladies a wrap-up comedy special from star Stephen Merchant, but it appears that we’ve reached the end of the road for Christopher Guest’s Family Tree, which was an endearing if ultimately minor show from the brilliant mind behind Best in Show and Waiting for Guffman.  THR also adds that talks are underway for a second season of the dark comedy Getting On, starring Alex Borstein.  Hit the jump for more on HBO’s current slate.

In addition to announcing 2014 end-dates for True Blood and Boardwalk Empire, HBO recently ordered a third and final season of Aaron Sorkin‘s polarizing drama series The Newsroom.  Though it seems like the pay cable network is losing quite a few of its regular shows, it still has ratings juggernaut Game of Thrones and there is a slew of impressive new programming in the works.  HBO just debuted the new half-hour dramedy series Looking and the anthology drama True Detective, and Mike Judge’s new series Silicon Valley will premiere this spring.  Damon Lindelof’s drama series The Leftovers premieres this summer, and HBO has also ordered to series the Duplass Brothers comedy Togetherness.  As for pilots that hope to become fully fledged shows, there’s Ryan Murphy’s sex drama Open, Dwayne Johnson’s comedy Ballers, and the Jack Black/Tim Robbins potential series The Brink.  In short, there’s still plenty of HBO to go around.
