UPDATE ON SEASON 2 OF "HOW TO MAKE IT IN AMERICA"

" HBO hasn't decided if "How to Make It in America" will make it to a second season.

Theshow, which wrapped up its eight-episode run Sunday night, follows agroup of 20-something New Yorkers trying to make it their mark in thefashion and design worlds. Described as either "Sex and the City" forthe bridge and tunnel crowd or what would have happened to"Entourage's" Vinnie and Eric if they never left Queens, "How to MakeIt In America" has struggled to find an audience.

The firstseven episodes of "How to Make It in America" averaged fewer than 1million viewers on its Sunday night run. Even for a pay cable channelsuch as HBO that does not count on ratings as much as commercial TVnetworks, that is a small number. If one factors in viewing forepisodes of the show from HBO on-demand, digital video recorders andrepeat airings, the figure grows to just under 3 million.

FromMark Wahlberg, whose production company also makes "Entourage" and "InTreatment," HBO insiders say the show has been tracking well withyounger viewers. However, that may not be enough to ensure a secondseason. While the pay cable channel has often carried shows for severalseasons that have strong critical acclaim but small audiences such asDavid Simon's "The Wire," "How to Make It in America" has not attainedthat feverish devotion of so many other HBO shows.

But theWahlberg connection may be enough to buy it a second season. Theexecutive producers -- Stephen Levinson and Rob Weiss -- are going tobe discussing a second season with creator Ian Edelman and then willmake their case to HBO.

In the show's favor is that it is notexpensive. Furthermore, HBO rarely gives up on a show after just oneseason. Even "Mind of the Married Man" got a sophomore year.
