'Girls,' 'Looking' will switch nights to avoid Super Bowl SundayAdd to Favorites | Girls
The network is making sure "Girls" and "Looking" won't suffer as all eyes are on the Broncos and Seahawks in MetLife Stadium. HBO instead moved the new episodes to a much-less crowded evening: the night before.
The fifth episode of "Girls" Season 3 and the third episode of "Looking" Season 1 will air Saturday, Feb. 1. The two comedies will still air at their normal times, 10 and 10:30 p.m. ET, respectively. They'll follow a repeat of "True Detective," which will be taking the week off altogether.
The move echoes HBO's actions last year, when it pushed "Girls" off Super Bowl Sunday as well.
