A decision on The Wire is coming down to the, um, well, you know. At the Television Critics Association winter press tour Thursday, HBO chairman Chris Albrecht said that no decision has been made about renewing the acclaimed (yet ratings-challenged) drama for a fourth season. "I have received a telegram from every viewer of The Wire," he said. "All 250 of them." (Hey, me too!) Albrecht added that a final verdict is expected to come down in a few weeks.
