HBO Removes Late-Night ‘Adult Programming’ Due to Lack of Demand

HBO

If you’re not tuning in to be turned on, they’ll turn it off.
HBO still has plenty of sexy shows, and even full-frontal nudity — including on “The Deuce,” “Game of Thrones” and “Westworld” — but they’ve given up on their other late-night content.
According to TheWrap, HBO has quietly removed its erotic “after dark” movies and series. The cable network used to feature adult content like “Taxicab Confessions,” “Real Sex,” “Cathouse,” and some “soft-core” feature films.
An HBO rep told TheWrap why they axed the XXX stuff:

“Over the past several years HBO has been winding down its late-night adult fare. While we’re greatly ramping up our other original program offerings, there hasn’t been a strong demand for this kind of adult programming, perhaps because it’s easily available elsewhere.”

Yeah, you can get porn anywhere. Also, over the past few years, HBO has really elevated itself in terms of quality. It is regularly the Emmys frontrunner, and that does seem like the kind of area it might want to amplify.
That said, “The Deuce” Season 2 — following the erection of the 1970s porn industry in NYC — continues with Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Franco starting Sunday, September 9 on HBO.Want more stuff like this? Like us on Facebook.
