Is HBO really in trouble? (Speaking of HBO, check out this great movie from 1983 about the creation of the HBO Theater opening sequence). Business Week asks if the premium channel is in trouble now that "The Sopranos" are gone (also "The Wire", "deadwood", "Rome", etc.) with nothing on the horizon to step up. The fact is that Showtime, FX, and even AMC are coming up with more compelling shows as of this last year than the flagship of premium, HBO. It's going to take more than "Entourage" to keep HBO going and "Tell Me You Love Me", "John of Cincinatti", and "In Treatment" were or are duds.
