Rome, which was a wildly popular HBO series, was cut short due to budget. If you watch some of the intro videos to this season they also mention that they chose to spend the most of their money on locations vs. other stuff (i.e. CGI, etc). I wouldn't be shocked by it.
Knew about Rome, but I just don't see it for GoT. I bet their subscriptions have a big spike every March for the show and the Blu-rays are probably at least top 10 in sales the past two years. Everyone is completely hooked on the show, and knowing where the story goes, it's only going to get more popular.
If they cancel it, I'll never give HBO another cent.
