HBO has renewed "Luck," its newest drama from "Deadwood" creator David Milch, for a second, 10-episode season.

The renewal of the racetrack drama, whose stars include Dustin Hoffman and Nick Nolte, comes just two days after its official Sunday debut and follows a pattern HBO's established with other recent dramas -- renewal as promotional tool.

In other words, we told you lots and lots about "Luck" last week, and now we're reminding you that it's on next week, too -- and that the network's backing this horse to make it to the finish line.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
