TV Tonight: Hung

Ever since we first learned of its, er, suggestive name, I've been curious to see HBO's Hung. Possibilities for sick jokes aside, there are lots of solid reasons I'm looking forward to checking out this comedy tonight.

For one thing, the extra-long (. . . hee) premiere episode is directed by Alexander Payne of Election and Sideways fame.

And for a third, HBO's comedy is looking good these days in general, from Eastbound and Down to the forthcoming Bored to Death, so I'm willing to give anything they introduce a shot.

Hung stars Thomas Jane as Ray Drecker, a once-promising basketball star turned down-on-his-luck small-time coach. In the midst of a particularly painful string of missteps, he attends a self-help conference and realizes he can perhaps make a living using the one asset nobody has ever doubted: his . . . um, you know.
