A day after greenlighting an eighth season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” pay cabler will give a second season to “How to Make It in America.”

Eight-episode first season averaged 2.8 million viewers, factoring in multiple telecasts during the week, on-demand and DVR usage.

Season two will also be eight episodes — about three episodes less than the usual order for a scripted series — and will debut in summer 2011.

In addition to Edelman, exec producers are Stephen Levinson, Rob Weiss, Julian Farino, Jada Miranda and Mark Wahlberg.

HBO also recently renewed a second season of “Treme” two days after the April 11 premiere.
