The Life and Times of Tim'The Life & Times of Tim' lives again! After being canceled by HBO, the show was shopped around before finding a home at ... HBO.

Yes, according to Deadline Hollywood, the premium cable channel has picked up the animated series for a 10-episode third season.

The project from MRC and Good Humor TV was canceled by HBO in June and shopped around to TBS, Comedy Central and Adult Swim before landing back at HBO.

The cult-hit follows the life of Tim, voiced by series creator and writer Steve Dildarian, and his awkward adventures in New York City with his girlfriend Amy, voiced by M.J. Otto. In 2007, 'Tim' was produced for Fox, but the network passed on the pilot.

Last season the series was paired with MRC's 'The Ricky Gervais Show' in an animated comedy block.

I hadn't heard of the show. But you just gotta' know with a Surname like Dildarian, or any name, Given or Sur, that starts with Dild (as in dild-O), that guy took a lot of crap growing up. And his poor kids! What an albatross! Ahhh! The gift that keeps on giving!

I never heard of it!

HBO has some good programs, but it also has a lot of third rate and old movies, and things like this to stuff its schedule. Well, good news for cartoon lovers everywhere, enjoy! I wish HBO would have continued with "Carnivale" but it's so much cheaper to throw on a cartoon.
