Lena Dunham, creator and star of HBO’s “Girls,” is shocked that her raunchy comedy is still on the air.

“I kept thinking, after the pilot, ‘OK, we’ll make a pilot and then that’ll be a great story in my life when I’m a mail woman,’ ” the Emmy Award winner told David Letterman on CBS’ “Late Show” on Monday night.

Despite 27-year-old Dunham’s doubts, “Girls” returns for a third season with back-to-back episodes on Sunday at 10 p.m.
