HBO's Laura Dern-fronted spiritual dramedy 'Enlightened' may have recently wrapped up its most critically-adored season to date, but enlightenment can't help you conjure up needed ratings. The pay-cable network has officially announced that it will pass on a third season of Amy Jellicoe's corporate adventures, effectively cancelling the series.

As much as we love the current crop of TV infecting all of our Sundays, from 'Boardwalk Empire' to 'Dexter,' 'The Walking Dead' and beyond, we can't help feelikng like we're in need of a return to more down-to-Earth fare.

We know 'Girls' and 'Enlightened' will return next year, but when will HBO give us an exact date? Oh, right now? Sweet!
'Luck' might be out of luck, but you're in luck! Fans of HBO's hotly-debated new Lena Dunham dramedy 'Girls' as well as Laura Dern's 'Enlightened' won't have to wait quite as long for either shows' sophomore year. The network has announced that it will be debuting season 2 of both shows earlier 2013 than their previous outings, but by how much? And what unlucky show is to blame?
