Can't cancel NOLA, it just keeps on going. It's nice to know that tourism is really picking up again, in no small part to shows like this.

I'm not surprised anymore when a well-written, beautifully-acted show is cancelled or not renewed. Just think about the number of seasons that The Beverly Hillbillies lasted! There are more of "them" out there than us.

I forgot to add - we should be thanking the execs for giving the Treme writers and crew a chance to wrap up their wonderful show. That's a lot more than most networks will do for a failing show. Hell, it's a lot more than HBO has done for equally good shows in the past (Carnivale and Deadwood come to mind)

I swear this site draws some of the most ignorant comments. Shows get funded or canceled based on how much money they bring in for the network. In this case HBO isn't getting enough of its subscribers watching the show to justify spending more money on it.
Treme is a well-written, well-cast, well-acted, well-shot, and well-directed show. It's truly one of the great dramas to air on HBO, and that's saying something. It sucks to see it go, but this is the business of television. The viewing public decides what stays and what goes. Blame the idiots with the remotes, not the execs with the checkbooks.
