HBO2 Goes All-Carlin for Two Nights

HBO will pay tribute to comedian George Carlin this week by airing nothing but Carlin's comedy specials for two nights on HBO2.

The main HBO channel also will show one Carlin special — his most recent, It's Bad for Ya, which premiered in March — on Friday. In total, the networks will show 11 of his 14 specials, starting with Carlin's first (George Carlin at USC, from 1977) and ending with his last.

Carlin, the legendary foul-mouthed comedian, died on Sunday from heart failure. He's being remembered as an icon and a "counterculture hero," and his TV specials were a big part of his legacy. To see HBO's full schedule, just

It's funny, but in the last 3 months or so I've managed to catch several of George's old shows on HBO (at like, 2am) and had a renewal of interest where he was concerned, so I was seriously saddened when I heard of his passing. However, I'm glad HBO is airing his specials this week. I can catch up on what I missed. Thank you for the update!

I think I'll tape these specials. He'll surely be missed.

Thanks for the posting, Buzz. Carlin confronted the absurdities in life and made us laugh at them.
