HBO renews 'Boardwalk Empire' for third season

We haven't heard the last of Nucky Thompson.

Nucky, the fictionalized version of longtime Atlantic City pol Enoch "Nucky" Johnson whom Steve Buscemi plays on HBO's "Boardwalk Empire," will stroll the seaside promenade for a third season, the network announced Wednesday, saying the show was among its most popular, with "an average gross audience" -- over multiple showings each week -- of 10.7 million viewers.
