HBO renews ‘Vinyl’ despite low-rated premiere

Senior Television Writer

Proving once again that ratings are only of vague importance in pay cable, HBO has ordered a second season of Vinyl, only a day after the disappointing ratings for the series premiere of the Martin Scorsese-produced '70s rock drama were released.

I had mixed feelings about Vinyl, but am hopeful that all the talent involved (particularly Terence Winter as showrunner and lead writer) will let it coalesce in time.
