As Hannibal fans this weekend (and billions of others before them) can attest, too long has the antiquated Nielsen ratings system given an incomplete picture of a show’s viewership, swaying networks to and fro of cancellation. We may finally have some progress however, as Nielsen will begin taking into account streaming data from the likes of Hulu, Netflix and beyond.

There may never be another season of television with as much built-in anticipation as Game of Thrones Season 6, both over the fate of Jon Snow and the possibility of revealing George R.R.

Now that HBO’s Deadwood finally seems on track for a feature follow-up, as well as the network’s overall trend of movie closure (see: Looking, Hello Ladies), one wonders what became of Jonathan Ames’ Bored to Death after its promised movie.

Reviving old TV series practically seems like old hat at this point, though HBO’s Deadwood ranks up among Firefly as a fabled reunion we’d come to relinquish hope for.

Now that HBO’s Game of Thrones will officially outpace George R.R. Martin’s books (unless you wanna throw Winds of Winter at us in March, George), fans cant help looking toward the inevitable series’ end in sight.
